Actually it's not that hard really TB. Just put a small plastic Bowl ... Bar of Soap.... Towel ... and a Container of Water in the back of your Van. Might have been a problem when we used to be on Bikes but if you've got a van it's not a problem. :thumbup

I keep telling people at work, "You're Responsible for your Own Health & Wellbeing, don't expect anyone else to run around after you" It's not hard really. Glad you made it back to the Office OK! :cuppa

All of them will have forgotten by Christmas, and will avoid you like the plague (the old one, not CV19 )

A normally extremely grumpy and grumbling woman came out her house today after I'd posted her mail and thanked me profusely. Which was nice.

You may laugh TB but one of our lads did just that. :shock: He had a dose of the runs and was worried he might get caught out in the middle of nowhere. He took a plastic Bucket and Bog Roll... Just in Case .....Luckily he didn't need it. :cuppa

I saw some advise from Royal Mail recently, which explained the new delivery procedures. I also said not to approach you post person, and to retreat inside if you see them coming to you.

So this lady had either read the advise (not, likely), or was just pig ignorant.

Keep safe out there folk. Unlike Royal Mail, who couldn't give a t**s, I really feel for you.

One of my customers gave me half a dozen eggs last week too and had a thank you card from another one today. Not like the people at the top of RM leaching off us who couldn't give a **** about any of us.

I've been given rhubarb! Not sure if there were any connotations with this? However, just the thought given by the customer was appreciated.

AND my wife made a really lovely rhubarb crumble!

Two cans of coke and a bag of sweets left for me with a nice note today.

Also had an oven tray outside a door with a note saying “leave post on tray, we bake in oven to sterilise”!!!

I know what you mean. I often have to bite my tongue when I turn up at a house that's got pictures of Rainbows in the window saying "Thank You Postman for Delivering our Parcels" and the Mum opens the door and says, "Thanks for carrying on working" :speak to the hand

You really feel like saying, "If you really appreciate what we're doing will you please stop ordering so much crap"! :cuppa

Same. So many people going for walks too and want to say hello and chat. I just want to get on and finish on time and not spend my time having small talk. You are supposed to be out for exercise not to slow me down telling me how wonderful the weather is.
