A regular bloggee has commented
on that LS of M, our postee and his refusal to lift mail from individual houses- a community service provided by all his predecessors. Apparently he quotes cases when postmen have been accused of nicking money from the outgoing mail after picking it up from individual customers. I wonder what relevance this has to real life? A mailman could be just as easilyaccused of the same offence when emptying the letter box into which we are now ordered to post our letters. And what a revealing attitude! Is that what he thinks might happen around here. No I fear it is a case of couldn't be bothered. A real Jobsworth as well as a LS of M. Pity for the old and infirm who now have to make the trek to the village post box-over half a mile in some cases-and if you have no car and can't manage that on foot-tough.
