Postmen - Why can't they deliver letters to the right fucking door. I got a letter the other day for a house almost half a mile away. I got the postman today and tried to give him back the letter - he wasn't having it for some reason - and he actually excused himself saying that since my house was number 12 and the letter was for number 12 some other fucking street he hadn't really fucked up. :angry:

There's funny laws regarding the post. They aren't allowed to hand it to you on the path, they HAVE to deliver it through the letter box, or give it to you while you are in the house. They probably LEGALLY can't accept letters handed back to them for whatever reason.

Also, it's more likely the fault of someone at the sorting office that the letter was in the the wrong bag/ place in the bag, not his.

And FFS, it's only a mis-delivered letter...

Were the three of you acting like twats before you went up to the counter? If you were, it's likely she did all that just to piss you off.

nope

yep.

Anyway, the bloody exhaust mounting has rusted off my car! I went out to my mean machine, and noticed that the exaust was hanging in mid air, rather than sitting snugly against the body. So I had a look, and it turns out that the big metal bracket that sits round the end of my exhaust (not for me your cheap and dangerous hook) had basically just disintegrated with rust.

Luckily, I went out and did some work involving a hammer, the remnants of the mounting, and a length of chain and its now being held up again...still, Ill have to pop to the parts shop and get a replacement bracket as soon as!

So what am I supposed to do with the mis-delivered letter? Am I supposed to deliver it for him? Shouldn't he have checked the address before stupidly posting the letter? What happens to the other person when they discover their peice of mail went missing? Sorting office is the post office. He represents the post office. What happened to taking responsibility for your f**k ups.

They all get on my nerves. :angry:

Put it in a Royal Mail letter box and let them worry about it.

Postmen walksort their own mail i.e breaking it down into street and houses. T'was the postie to blame, no one else.

Can i ask if you have ever sorted mail before? Mistakes can happen. It could easily have been misread by the postman as an honest mistake.

As for what Stuart should do with it. He should stop being a miserable fucker, write on the envelope was delivered to the wrong address and re-post it. Posties are not allowed to take mail from individuals, and they must post it through your letterbox. If you don't like the rules, tough shit they are there for a reason.

Yes I worked as a postman for 6 years.

I also agree it would have been an honest mistake. I made plenty of them myself but always took the letter back - why should I penalise the customer for my error. There were certainly no rules regarding taking mail back when I was there (left in 1997). Indeed, if a customer complained that I refused to accept an erroneously delivered letter, I would have been deep in the shit.

I worked as a postman after you, and was told that i was NOT Allowed to accept post from anyone. I HAD to tell them to put it in the post-box. (i picked up mail, not delivered).

That could be because mail pickups are a paid for service. Whereas, what we're talking about here is correcting a delivery error.

Anyway, game is about to start - Forza Scozia

I was told it was an insurance thing (which may be why it is a recent "rule") Apparently it is to say that the "customer" put it in such and such a post box so it should have been picked up at a certain time, instead of just saying i gave it to the postie.

My car is in for it's first M.O.T.

This is the first M.O.T. that I've put a car in for and I'm dreading the results.

My car is running fine but I know I need brake pads. Are they expensive? :unsure:
