So anyway there I am going about my job of delivering mail.
I have a charge of £1.20 to collect 'cos someone has mailed a card without a stamp on and this is the standard Royal Mail Surcharge Fee.
I arrive at the house:
“Morning ma’am I have a surcharged item here that you asked to be delivered today”
"I don’t see why I should have to pay "
“You don’t, but if you don’t it goes back to sender”
“Well what is it then?”
[BLANK LOOK HERE] “I dunno, we aren’t allowed to open them”
She than hands me a £20 note
“Sorry ma’am but I don’t carry change and the office did tell you to have the exact money ready”
“Why don’t you carry change”
“Because I’m a postman and not a bank”
I then offer to take the note and bring back the change the day after.
She looks at me as if I had just suggested she give me a BJ and call it quits.
This went on for about 10 mins or so and I had 9 sodding bags of mail to deliver today and I’m not a happy little pilgrim.
She eventually says “hold on I’ll call your office”
I explained to her VERY politely that I had wasted enough time already and that I had all the rest of the mail to get shut of, I then buggered off.
The dozy cow follows me telling me her sister had sent the card and remembered putting a stamp on it.
“For the very last time ma’am, I am only doing my job, mine is not to reason why, just to collect the money and you can’t have the card until you pay the £1.20”
I’m really fed up…honestly, God hates me I just know it.
