Thread: What time does your postman deliver your post?

  1. Smile What time does your postman deliver your post?

    Mine seems to get later and later. Today it was 1.50 pm

    Anyone know what happened to getting your post early?

    Does the postman maybe have to do the sorting also now with all the cutbacks?

    I am just interested not complaining so please don't shoot me lol

    In our area the Postmen have had to delay their starting time in the PO until 06:00 (effectively reducing the extra pay for unsociable hours)
    So - they can't start sorting the mail until 06:00.

    And their rounds are a great deal longer (there are now fewer postmen to do the same job, and vans deliver the additional mail to drop-off points along the route (there's too much mail just to take out by your postie.

    Our post arrives between 11:45 and 13:00 hrs - and our Postman's day finishes about 14:30 to 15:00.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,
    - - - but rather to skid in sideways - beer in one hand - something deep fried in the other - -
    body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming........................ "WOO HOO, What a Ride!"

    Between 2 & 3pm for us.

    Deliveries down to 3 days a week, with wednesday's soley reserved for junk mail;
    which is always Dominos, Somerfield and an insurance flyer.
    So effectively we can only expect deliveries twice a week unless someone has paid extra for special delivery (in which case a van delivers rather than the postie).

    It really angers me how the service has been devalued to the point where I resent having to use it.
    Our postal service used to be envied all over the world.
    Now I'm not so sure. I miss reading the mail at breakfast.
