it was on both national tv news programmes 2 years ago re tipping in general
everyone said similar thing on both channels re Postmen/women
we don't know our postman now !!! -don't know what time he turning up ? and sometimes see 2/3 different postmen in the same week !!
ALL SO TRUE
we have lost our identity with the public
yet were told customers want this ?? strange !! re deliveries times to suit them ???
most dont care what time it turns up-so long as it does !!
according to senior management we have to move with the times ???
but despite other couriers/parcel companies we can still dictate the delivery and always will do and customers will accept this l
as none of these organisations will ever have the infrastructure to deliver mail/parcels in volume we do and they never will !!!!!
we work more hours in U/K than any country/postal operation in Europe !!!!
I loathe turning up at 3pm with kids cards/presents re birthdays etc and other htigs in life as a whole !
people still want their mail early so they can act upon it
the infrastructure is wrong-we pay out more overtime than any other business in the U/K according to analysts/financial experts !!!
part time fixation ??
baffles me -worked in 4 other industries before coming here in 1998
never seen a more manual job/hands on that needs full time personnel - not part time !!!
mail down ?? yet poulation increases by 200,000 a year-we all living longer !!!
tipping is a thing of my age group in general-i still tip re resteraunts cafes etc
as for us-anything you get a bonus -it will never return as we lost the personal touch and it wont came back re the working idealogy being
put on us

Unfortunately you must work with a bunch twats mlw. It's just common decency to pass on a few tips to your colleagues. Luckily I don't drink wine, and I'm not too keen on chocolate & sweets. So the Day Off Cover & Leave Reserve got a bottle of Red, and a bottle of White Wine each. Plus a Box of Chocolates and a card with a Cash. The Old Boy whose a "Floating Reserve" and sometimes covers just got a bottle of wine. I do believe it's important to give something to fellow Posties..... I even tipped MY Postie ..... and I can't stand him! Guess what he got.... Yep a bottle of wine.

And they all deliver in fairly decent areas and most give you nothing!
