To be annoyed with my postman?

(20 Posts)

We have our milk delivered and the postman kicked a bottle over this morning when delivering the post. By the time I'd got out of bed and got downstairs, he'd gone, leaving broken glass and milk all over the doorstep. AIBU to have expected him to knock and apologise? I'm not bothered about the actual breakage - accidents happen - but I am annoyed he didn't apologise.

Disclaimer: I will take it all back if he turns up later in the day with a replacement pint!

Write and complain. I did when one of their drivers overtook on a bend and drove me off the road. They sent a book of 6 second class stamps by way of apology. grin

how do you know the postman did it?

imnotforty By the sounds of what the OP say's she possibly heard glass smashing, so she ran downstairs to find her post and a smashed milk bottle.

Just guessing grin

It was definitely the postman. I heard the bottle go, then the post came through the letter box.

it might have been his pesky cat Jess?
My postman crosses my garden smoking everyday, winds me up.

Write at once to Mrs Goggins.

Have your letterbox wired up to give him a electric shock when he puts his hand through. This will teach him not to knock over your bottle and not tell you. smile

If he comes back with another bottle then no need for the electric shock treatment smile

Laminator why would it wind you up that your postman smokes??? confused

MummyDoIt Sat 30-Jul-11 13:35:09

Mythical, I hadn't noticed that. Cool! Couldn't do that intentionally if I tried!

LOL at writing to Mrs Goggins!!!!

YANBU. A temporary postie destroyed our catflap by trying to put a large parcel through it, while we were in the house. Meh.

Poor postie - he prob dithered about whether to wake you are deliver a fresh pint the next day!

MummyDoIt Sat 30-Jul-11 17:16:48

Paperview, he didn't dither! I heard him scrunching off across the gravel immediately and he'd vanished off down the road by the time I got to the front door. He has not returned with a replacement pint so I am seriously unimpressed! Particularly as I now have to go to the shop tomorrow, just to buy milk.

squeekytoy - coz i wait till the kids are out of sight till i light up, jelous of his casual smoking. its more that he cuts thru the hedge - the smoking just rubs it in ;)
