to think that the recent Royal Mail price increases are all down to Postman bloody Pat?

OK, so I ended up watching Postman Pat Special Delivery Service earlier on and I just couldn't believe it!

Postman Pat had a small parcel to deliver. Due to his bloody cat causing trouble (not for the first time I might add) the parcel, which was a bouncy castle, inflated in the sorting office.

Now, instead of doing the obvious thing and deflating it, Pat decides to deliver it by helicopter, fully inflated, flying over the fields of Greendale. I mean really?!?! How much did that cost then Pat - I bet it was less than a tenner paid by the sender, and you go out in a bleeding helicopter to deliver it?

AND then let your cat bounce on it, causing it to have numerous holes and deflate. Then you buy all the plasters for sale in the village (which by an amazingly fortunate co-incidence were over-delivered to the shop that very morning) and patch up the bouncy castle with them.

I very much doubt that these costs would be covered by the sender, and rightly so - Pat's incompetence and staggering disregard for resources is hardly their fault.

So it's us, the consumer, who end up paying in the form of increased postal charges all round. Thanks a lot, Pat.

And yes, as the song says - he is a very lucky man - if he worked in the private sector he would have been sacked years ago!

We sit & pick holes in postman pat every morning blush

Have you seen the old one where he complains about the villagers using catalogues?

He's just a twat with a cat.

Why the fuck does Postman Pat have a helicopter now? His village is so small it probably doesn't even have a tesco!

Same goes for you, Fireman Sam.

KirstyJC Fri 12-Apr-13 18:30:17

Oooh don't get me started on Fireman Sam!!!

Every emergency needs the Fire Service - and there only appear to be about 6 people who live in Pontypandy, depsite all the houses.

I reckon Norman Price must be the lovechild of Dilys and Fireman Sam - no other explanation for them all putting up with him causing so much trouble.

Have you seen the fireman Sam with the forest fire? And they evacuate the whole village (about 6 people) on to a boat as they give up saving the village from the fire. hmm

The council tax in pontypandii (Sp?) must be fucking outrageous. Sam has; a helicopter, a boat, a quad bike and a fire engine. Someone in the FBU must have some serious dirt on the town council for all that shit

I hate Pat, I'm refusing to call him a postman as its a disservice to people who really do the job.

He once lost some eggs which were about to hatch and Sarah almost put them in her cake and they hatched in the back of the van. Oh how everyone laughed. Another time he lost a parrot and it went on a train to Leeds or somewhere.

Oh and another time Amy had ordered a house for a mouse and he dropped it, broke it, needed Teds help and finally delivered it and it was the wrong one but it was ok apparently because he just kept it for Julian to play on.

He also put some super expensive robots through the car wash and broke them - hilarious.

I like to go to Greendale one day and smack him in the face.

They use the helicopter in every episode of Postman Pat SDS.

In SDS he is in Pencaster a lot, not just Greendale.

We have a Postman Pat book where he goes to London and is terribly excited by the prospect of Post Women. I always feel sorry for Sara now as Pat is clearly a no-good chest. You should see the way he dances with Dipali at the church steel drum event. You can't convince me their relationship is purely platonic.

WhispersOfWickedness Fri 12-Apr-13 19:09:32

Ooo, the irresponsible use of resources really annoys me angry
He once used the helicopter to rescue some balloons (that he had lost of course) from a tree!!shock

JollyPurpleGiant Fri 12-Apr-13 19:13:42

Cheat, not chest. Bloody DH asking me to help him tidy before I had proof read my post.

My mother was here helping with DD1 a few weeks ago - and (having finally discovered how to work the sky box - this has taken months of teaching to achieve) decided to find something on the kids channels to entertain/set on the path to square-eyedom DD1... saw Postman Pat on TV and switched over, expecting the ambling along country lanes, cat in tow she remembered from me being small.

Her face when he was rocking around in a helicopter was hilarious.

MumToOneMogwai Fri 12-Apr-13 20:47:45

Incompetant twat. One Fucking Parcel a Day..can he do it? no he can't. Yet they're always like 'Oh don't worry Pat always gets his parcels here in time' NO NO HE FECKIN DOESN'T, HE ALWAYS COCKS IT UP!

StickEmWithThePointyEnd Fri 12-Apr-13 20:56:25

And why does he now have a wife and child? I don't remember them being in the series when I was little.

Wish they'd bring back Rosie and Jim, or at least release the original series on DVD!

BadgersNadgers Fri 12-Apr-13 21:10:39

He got a medal! A fucking medal for always being on time! Never mind that he uses twenty grand's worth of public resources every crapping morning because he is too fuckwitted, lazy and irresponsible to do his job properly! Twatbag!

I'd leave Norman Price in the well, shithead!

helendont Fri 12-Apr-13 21:13:05

He deserves sacking for all the meddling with the mail he does. Isn't fannying about with the post classed as treason?

PetiteRaleuse Fri 12-Apr-13 21:21:06

Rosie and Jim were created by the same guy. They were his post-Postman Pat creation. They came after my time but I used to watch my younger sibling's videos. I reckon they have aged badly.

Bobyan Fri 12-Apr-13 21:31:07

I wonder if he has a perm.

Allthingspretty Fri 12-Apr-13 21:36:00

Rosie ans jim dvd www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00005J6UA

StickEmWithThePointyEnd Fri 12-Apr-13 21:40:37

Unforunately that Rosie and Jim DVD on Amazon has Neil in it, but I want John. <picky>

WildlingPrincess Fri 12-Apr-13 23:04:49

Yanbu!

MrsGeologist Fri 12-Apr-13 23:09:46

It's dicking about with his mates Alf and Ted that fucks him up. He has to deliver a parcel, then he runs into Alf and/or Ted, and they all of them, somehow, completely fuck it up.
See the bats episode, the telescope episode and the robots episode, among many others.

He doesn't get paid to socialise!

MrsGeologist Fri 12-Apr-13 23:10:49

This is why he doesn't work for the Royal Mail any more. He works for what I assume is Postman Pat's world's equivalent of Yodel.

Yonirubbishnamesleft Fri 12-Apr-13 23:15:20

See now old Postman Pat was alright. But then they give him this Special Delivery Service. Who delivers the fucking letters in Greendale now?

MrsGeologist Fri 12-Apr-13 23:17:18

Good point yoni. Mrs Goggins still works at the post office in Greendale, maybe Pat does it, after he has finished twitting about with parcels.
