The postman never comes

The postie gets mobbed by angry residents every time he comes. They want their post delivered and he refuses to do it and is now getting scared because people don't like paying late payment fines on gas and electricity bills ...
The post office said it's not their fault - "can't get the staff these days".
Our bills haven't come for the last 2 months.
We're trying to switch to direct debit - but the utilities are unreliable in their billing practices.

You don't get post delivered to your door?

Re: The postman never comes

My Polish postman is friendly and very reliable . He even waves at me when I see him in the street.

Re: The postman never comes

Locals wave at our postie, usually hiding several fingers in the process!

Re: The postman never comes

I hear that postmen are paid fairly well for unskilled labour in Poland. 2000+ per month.

Re: The postman never comes

This situation is causing endless crises now - bills are mounting up all over the village and late payment interest being charged, but the post office refuses to ensure deliveries of mail.

Re: The postman never comes

How about collecting your mail direct from the Post Office?

Re: The postman never comes

The postman hides things somewhere - they can't find items of mail at the post office. Their excuse is that he's outsource staff.
Dozens of complaints have been made now by many people, but no action has been taken.

Re: The postman never comes

On the radio last night I heard some talk of a postal strike. Polish postmen want to be paid 3000 zloties a month. Almost twice that of the average teacher!

Crazy country.

Re: The postman never comes

Latest update:
The post office are now sacking my postie for being drunk on duty.
We now have no deliveries whatsoever!

Re: The postman never comes

Last week I posted something by airmail to Poznan, Poland. It arrived three days later. That's quicker than some first class post within the UK.

Re: The postman never comes

Typical efficiency of Poznan ...

Re: The postman never comes

Our Polish postman is very good. He even delivered a parcel at 19.00 this week as he said he saw me leave in my car in the morning. Brilliant service.

Re: The postman never comes

We have a new postie - first delivery of 25 letters!!
Got some Christmas cards too.

Re: The postman never comes

I've not had a letter delivered for 2 weeks now.
The tax office is threatening me because of the post office's failure to deliver letters!

Re: The postman never comes

Time to start checking the neighbor’s attics.
