I concluded he must have been some kind of drugs dealer, or 'boz-boz'.
im probably wrong
someone tell him.
but i thought it was next friday
and it only just hit me
although it's not actually unusual for the postman to not turn up some days.
ruined my day
I walked through lots of protesting postmen today. They all cheered and waved, it was nice. I showed my support, even though I'm not actually sure of the terms...
by not putting stamps on any of my letters today.
take that, The Queen!
they all said "good morning" and suchlike to me. Which was odd, as I was entering the building I was picketing (I was temping and thus not under union guidelines)
once while temping and I was sure some guy whispered "scab" at me. But I probably imagined it.
as he's a postman. When he was delivering to some posh flats earlier in the week, Mrs Barrington-Forsdyke-Smythe came up to him and said "I suppose you'll be at your other job on Friday then?"
My Father in-law (let's call him John for that is his name) said "I'm sorry?"
"Your other job. You postmen all have other jobs don't you. What time do you finish?"
"And then you go to your other job don't you?"
"No, I don't have another job. This is my living."
"Yes you do! You finish at 2 o'clock. What time do you start?"
"Oh, well, I suppose you might only have one job then. Perhaps it's ok if you do finish at 2 o'clock."
There we are, crap story. Oh, and don't believe the story the Royal Mail are putting out about the union wanting a 27% pay rise. It's nothing like that. It's just that the union have spent so much money sending their members letters that they can't afford press releases.
You wanna get a life, son!
he's waiting for a letter from his baby?
