That would be near enough every house then since I'm covering a pair of walks on alternate days with double mail rather than work with revolving spares as my regular partner is in the high risk group. It's a hell of a workload, and no door to doors instead of two loops every day would have been a big help. Yet again, cheers for that totally unhelpful gesture RM. Anyway, I will do whatever I can to avoid catching this horrid illness while intending to remain as useful to society as possible. The irony is that I'm working harder than normal but unable to earn the overtime I normally do - I bet my wages have dropped in total more than 20%, so I'm worse off financially,still working in this job than the hospitality staff who are off completely and home safe, on 80% of their wages courtesy of the government. *sigh*

A customer did give me a pair of gloves and a bottle of hand sanitiser, and thanked me for still coming out. Most people are being absolutely lovely out on delivery, but the atmosphere is the office is starting to boil over.

That's more than one sanitizer for each employee. Where's mine?

For goodness sake if we are not delivering essential products i.e.: food, medicines , we are not bothered about how many gloves or sanitiser they have made available. Ask the NHS staff who are on their knee's at the minute, in tears, ask them what they want us to do and not deliver rubbish or stuff that is non essential off the internet. People are dying why some people are trying to profit from this virus.

no we haven't received any sanitizer either and we have run out of gloves today which we got on Monday , and the joke of the d2ds and there cunting plan , take them to houses where they have mail , so can they explain when your frame has 800 calls and is nearly all double slots how you would do this ? , the company are a joke to be honest and if it wasn't because of the CWU pushing for stuff etc and they are showing how piss poor the company is in dealing with anything.

Yes, very stressed and worried. The two metre rule is more like 20cm, we are still shoulder to shoulder, back to back. Nothing has changed.

Nobody is washing their hands - and I mean nobody. Everyone touching their faces, pens in mouths, PDAs passed around. It is truly frightening.

That's it. Im out. I will give them tomorrow where I will tell the DOM I will be taking 3 weeks annual leave and see where we are from there. If the situation is still f****d then I will UNHAPPILY take unpaid leave until the situation improves.

My reasons will be that my wife is in the vulnerable bracket with a number of conditions as well as being pregnant. I feel that RM are unwilling and unable to protect our wellbeing and il be damned if I go home and make my wife sick for some f***ing Dominoes leaflets and Screwfix catalogues. RM should be ashamed of themselves and god help Rico if I ever bump into him.

You do right, I think you’ll be the first of many. All it will take is a few offices to walk then others across the nation will follow. Stay safe

It's s**t Ren. I feel for you mate. I would be tempted to do likewise in your circumstances. I'm afraid RM as well as the government are well behind the curve in their response to this crisis. All the best to you, the wife and the little one yet to come.
