Apparently, it’s not just Santa who has a spoiled list, the postmen have them too and a ‘rude’ note will get you in there.

A postman has threatened to temporarily boycott an address after the household accused Royal Mail of ‘pretending’ to deliver parcels.

Royal Mail staff found the piece of paper taped to the property’s front door on December 1.

The handwritten message read: ‘Royal Mail. Don’t even think about putting a pass through the door without ringing the doorbell and pretending that the delivery was attempted but no one came in – as happened on Saturday.

‘We were in for the whole day and we will be today, Tuesday. RING THE BELL AND TRAFFIC NUMBERS. ‘

Amazed by the letter, the postman shared a picture of it in a group for other mail delivery workers, adding that he hopes the house ‘has happily received their mail from the office over Christmas. born’.

The post quickly caught the attention of other members, with many comments.

Some point out that this is one of the busiest times of the year for postmen and women, and that not being able to deliver parcels only means they have to carry more.

One person simply called the note ‘rude’ and another said it was ‘a nasty note that didn’t need to be left’.

While others say there are many explanations for why residents don’t hear the postman on their doorstep.

In a series of comments in response to questions from other postal workers, the postman said: ‘[I’m] no plans to deliver there in the future, this is the second time I’ve been told something like this…’

‘That’s not me [who left the attempted delivery note], maybe a parcel driver but that’s my delivery job that I’ve been doing for the past 10 years.

‘[But it] It was supposed to be one of those parcels that we left to someone else to do, either way it was aimed at us.

‘On the plus side, I received a good tip from one of the nice customers not long after.’

Over the past two years, the postman has publicly written about his ‘naughty list’, saying that anyone who leaves a note on their door will be put there, from which there is ‘no going back’. .

Royal Mail has since been reported to support their postman’s stance on no-home delivery, as when asked for an update on the situation he said: ‘[I’ve been] was told not to deliver to them and to ignore them until it was reviewed. ‘

A spokesperson for Royal Mail said: ‘Every mail item is important to us. Our postmen and women work incredibly hard to deliver mail to over 31 million addresses across the UK, six days a week, in all weather.

‘Thankfully, the majority of items are safely delivered to customers, but if we believe a customer is not home we will attempt to deliver to a neighbor and leave a plate. card.

‘If we are unable to deliver to them, we will leave a card and take the item back to a Customer Service Point, where the customer can pick up or arrange for delivery again.

‘All of our staff are regularly reminded of the high standards they expect – especially during the festive period. We advise anyone with questions about delivery to contact Royal Mail’s customer service team. ‘
