Ned Kelly causing trouble

Image: 

Ned's first time greeting the mail man got the above response from him, lol. Seems Ned is in trouble already.
Poor postie will have to get used to it cos Ned would never "lower himself" and stuffed if i'm doing it.
Our postie (contractor) is a cranky dick, Was always putting a neibours mail in our letter box which was a Banjo diff. Pam left a note asking postie to put mail in the RIGHT box and we recieved one of these little notes, It read "What's the diff' ", lol. and kept doing it. Now the fat arsed tosser will have to get out of her car. Makes me very happy to know she dont like my letter box :D

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

Seems she is not only lazy, but also has no manners...

No Hello, no Please, and no Thankyou...

Leave her a note informing her that her request MIGHT be reconsidered when she learns the common courtesies that everyone else learned in Kinder... :P

It'll read "STAND AND DELIVER" and if she spits it after that then i shall bring up the fact that it's against the law to post letters from her car because to do that she must pull to the wrong side of the road to reach and it's a side road off the Western Hyway. The boxes are only 3 or 4 meters off the corner, Ha Ha , I got her stuffed before she even starts :D

She drives an EA/EB or something station wagon. We have a rural contractor, not a postie as such. (10 k's out of town).

I was going to bring that up Dusty, but thought I'd wait to see what your postie did.

While she hasn't gone about it the right way, she is right in that the opening for the letters in a letterbox is supposed to be between 900 and 1200 mm above the ground.

If it doesn't meet the requirements, Australia Post are within their rights to refuse to deliver your mail and hold it at the Post Office...

HEY DUSTY,
i reckon if she starts a big [Naughty Pottyword]fight over this , think about the idea of posting your address on OLDHOLDEN so we can all send a couple of letters to you with STAND AND DELIVER in bold letters on them, that should make her grin and maybe think twice.

I'm stickin' to me guns and if she refuses to post me letters then she will find herself getting out of the car anyway coz gee, there'll be a car parked in her way every morning or maybe her tyres will keep going down or maybe i'll just go and greet the **** each morning and get my mail personally ( i'm not pleasant when i get up early :)or........Dunno, Stuff her, i shall triumph . I'm a right stubborn bastard with little else to amuse me and unlike her, i dont have rules to abide by.

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

I'm NOT going to defend all Posties as a FEW are idiots, but I was a Postie for about 12 years and then spent 6 years teaching new ones so I know a bit about the job. I could tell you some stories that'd make your hair curl about things that have happened to Posties (sometimes their fault, sometimes not).

If it gets that far, and I hope it doesn't, it'll be no good parking your car in front of the box Dusty as your mail will at the Post Office. If she can't get to your neighbours' letterboxes, their mail will be taken back too. How long till your neighbours get pissed at you for causing them to have to drive 10 K's into town to get their mail?

Park the car there and she will soon get the hint. I had the postie keep driving up a soggy piece of grass i tried to warn him that he will come a cropper on it and it was getting boggy plus i did not want the grass riped up so i put some rope up and he cut it so in the end i made it even more wet then one day i hear this big bang and the posti was lying in the garden. I told him to stop riding on it. now i have the best grass in the street as he drives on the road to the next house and the posti even brings the mail to my door when i am standing outside and we get on really well now:)
Bye the way it was the invro cycle that was making the ground wet so he really fell in our S**T

I love snatching kisses and vice versa

We used to live on the corner in a (T shaped) court...

The postie would drop our mail in the box, then ride diagonally across our front lawn (cutting the corner) to the next persons letterbox...

We asked him a couple of times to stop doing so, he ignored us. We had some large rocks laying about the place, so we did some "landscaping" and placed the rocks in his path acros our lawn in an attempt to make him ride around (he was on a motorbike for f!@#s sake, not like it required any effort!).

Instead, a few days later the missus gets a knock on the door. It's the postie... "I seem to have clipped your front tap and bent it, now it is leaking" he says... P looks past him to see a huge geyser in the front yard, he had not BENT the tap, he had broken it completely OFF. Funny part was that the tap he had broken was on the COUNCIL side of the water meter, you know the one you turn off to turn off the water to the house... So of course there was no way to turn this geyser off...

P rings the water co. Their response was "Turn off the mains tap and call a plumber, it's not our problem"... Once P explained that it was the mains tap that had broken off the actual main, and it was gushing on their side of the water meter, they changed their tune VERY quickly. Made it a top priority call...

P also rang the postie's supervisor, as the water company informed her that the posties would be liable for the cost of the call-out/repairs... Mr. Posties supervisor was UNHAPPY!!!

Anyway, after gushing for a couple of hours the tap got fixed, the garden got well watered, and all was good... Until 3 days later we noticed that the same tap was AGAIN bent and leaking, so another call to the postie supervisor ensured that we never saw that postie again...

On the plus side, the dead brown grass and skinny anemic trees in the front yard perked up massively after this event, and was lush and green all year round. We never were sure if it was to do with the good soaking they got, or the small continuous leak from the mains tap...

the only time Ive ever cared to see the postie was on the morning of the HSC results (failed anyway and joined the army! big surprise) and the postie turned up an hour or two late in her car.

When I saw her, before I said anything she apologised and told me she was late because she hand delivered all HSC results and got out of the car to come knock on the door and give it to the nervous students in person(our driveway was a good 150 meters)

This postie kind of has a point but went about it all the wrong way. Im sure dusty, you would not be so miffed about this if she actually tracked you down to explain her reasoning instead of a rather abrupt note.

i like funny letterboxes.

At my parents place their letterbox is mounted on a diff.
Pretty sure its a banjo by the look of it.
But no, i dont know its ratio or if its a coards/fine spline LSD or not :P

Also, at the corner of my street the house there uses a crankshaft as a letterbox post.
6 cyl i belive, quite large but simple looking, not much in the way of counterbalances. no idea which motor that came out of.

Well Dusty Dirt Roads, I was told I would find you here.
I find it very offensive the way you bad mouth me in front of your friends. Just so you know it is called defamation of character.
The man called Qute is correct as your mail slot is too high and I do not have to put your mail in.
Although your mail box is very interesting it is inappropriate and actually a health and safety issue as it has pointed protruding parts.
In future you and your wife will have to go and collect your mail as I will not be delivering it until it is lowered to the specified height and I receive a written apology.

And as for your attempts for stopping so you make sure I deliver your mail or even trying to vandalise my car, the police will be contacted and you will be dealt with.

For those on this site also supporting your 'friend' and bad mouthing me, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Sincerely,
Shiela, 'Dusty Dirt Roads' former mail lady.

I was initially going to say that I was a postie for 4 years and was a proper cow as well, but I have reviewed the situation and decided against taking that tack....

Yep, Sheila, Qute is right about the requirements. Others are right about 'doing the right thing' regards Dusty complying and backing down just a bit, to make the situation easier for you.

HOWEVER, Victa made the best point! COURTESY IS ESSENTIAL to sorting out problems. Your note lacked it and look at the repercussions! Dusty would have probably highlighted a friendly note from you, but it's too late now - yer both left with a mess!!

Failing a friendly note from you, the simple, unambiguous, official Aust Post letter would have clarified the situation for Dusty.

I'm betting you'll quietly reconsider how you engage with your client/customers next time this issue crops up, and all will be easily handled from now on....

P.S. Since not a soul on this forum has any idea who you are (apart from you giving us your 1st name - 'Doh!'), I don't believe your character has been defamed.

blissy, the box has to be on the fence line.
ive been a postie for the last eight years, and while it is all good to have an amusing, different, or wierd letterbox hidden behind a fence, tree, rock garden etc if we started to stuff up your workplace area you would all be calling your OH & S reps.

I seen a book on the best post boxes in aus along time ago some people have taken great pains to make theirs look fantastic(as dusty has)Now you being a post(person)would you write a letter like above ??
And i think by the way the boxes are spred out in dustys photos all the boxes are outside the fence!!!
So can he move it back on the other side then?????
Anyhow mine just collects bills rather not have one at all
i might redirect all mine to dustys .

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

I had my 'Q' Stato on the nature strip for a week after I had it towed home when it threw a piston crown,,
at the start of the next week the postie started throwing my mail onto the bonnet of the car, he could get to the box, just that he had to manouver around the car to get to it instead of just cruising past in a straight line,, so I rang the post office to complain,, next day there was a parking fine on the windscreen,, pffft,
so I had to start the car up and move it into my driveway and sacrafice a park spot for my SLE at the time,, all the time having a rod smacking around in the bore,,
$%!T was I seriously P!$$ed off or what,,,,

If you really hate your postie, can I suggest that you find out precisely the limits at which you can set your neddie up, and follow it to the law, making it as difficult for her as possible within the rules will soon really P!$$ her off, but the problem is, people are nasty and spiteful, you will lose mail, and get the "do not bend" stuff bent, I have no doubt,,

As Ned did!
Make one of them picker upper things in the shape of a pistol, so she can still sit in her car and you will still get your mail, as it looks higher than 1200mm to me. The one to the right, must be on the limit. Put a letter in the box "SIT AND DELIVER" Knowing every time you get mail, she has held Ned's ROD!
Everyone is happy especially Ned! At the very least you will have some ammunition (pun intended) If this conflict goes further!
I do like the earlier post of everyone on Oldholden sending you Mail stating "STAND AND DELIVER"
Good Luck!

It's way more interesting to read about all them other HORROR POSTIE stories out there, lol. I have her supervisors name and number and even better, i learnt tonight that the cleared area across the road from the letter boxes was specifically done by Vicroads to enable the contractor to safely/legally park whilst delivering the mail. Anyway, i'll see what happens tommorow and i'll keep ya's posted (pardon the pun, lol)

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

I installed aspring loaded brass mail flap in the rental property I just moved from .This was done about 9 months ago, and I kept getting these nasty little scribbly notes. The lazy postie said it was a danger to his fingers as he would ride past and shove the bills and crap in the box and get his fingers caught! He wanted me to remove the spring? Yeah right!! The spring remains and he still delivers the mail.But the poor widdle bugger has to stop momentarily?? Some people just get sooooo comfortable at doing stuff the easy way, that they EXPECT the earth to DEVOLVE to suit teir obesety!!! I say your doing miss piggy a favour. She may shed a few kilos if she has to actually has to walk and reach in her labour intensive job! By the way my postie now is soooo fat shelooks like she ate Jenny and Craig!!! LMAO

TELL SOMEONE WHO CARES

Let's look at this logically Bobby:

Those brass letterboxes ARE dangerous. I, personally, have almost ripped the end off one of my fingers in one of them. I have also lost a fingernail when one snapped shut right on the end of my finger on the coldest day of that particular year...OUCH!!!

An average postie has about 12 seconds per delivery point to deliver your mail AND get to the next house. It is not worked out on this but this is how it works out. If he has to stop at every letter box for 8 or 10 seconds, he will take twice as long to deliver his mail and the price of postage WILL go up as the cost of labour (which is THE major cost for Post) will go up by 120% - 150%. Do you want to be responsible for EVRYONE in Aus paying more for postage?

Not only that, but I am extremely disappointed with your lack of compassion for someone who is doing a service for you that you do not pay them for. Why go out of your way to potentially harm another person? Makes no sense to me.

As I said above, mate, I am not going to defend every Postie as some are not worth defending but 99% of them are good people and do the right thing by the people on their round/beat/walk (what it is called depends on what part of the country you are in...).

Sometimes, I think it would be good if Aus was like the US in that US Post supply and own the letterboxes and dictate where they are erected and who can deliver stuff to them. On the other hand, Aus Post is waaaaay better than US Post or pretty well ANY other Post in the world...

Australia Post certainly does rock. I post things all the time and never have i had anything lost nor late. Considering their workload, that's nothing short of bloody amazing. This thread is in no way meant to be a slur on Australia Post or their services, Just a hissy with one individual whom i wish would **** off to her corner :)

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

It sounds like this whole situation has been handled badly ... right from the start.
I would like to relate a "good postie" story - just to give some balance.

Ordered some stuff of evilBay and the idiot completely stuffed up the address (got the name right, wrong street address). Anyway the post office (country town post office) recognised my name and wrote our street (just the street name, no address) on the parcel - our road is 30 km long.

When the postie contractor got the parcel she also recognised my name, and it got delivered. At least they (aust post and the contractor) cared enough to try and deliver the package rather than just throw it in the too hard basket ... lucky too, because it had no sender's details on the package, so it couldn't even be returned to the guy I bought it off.

Hey Qute, what happens to those undeliverable items??

Cheers.

Vernon.

We try to find the address. With ExpressPost, we will call the sender or the addressee if we can find a number.

If we really cannot find the addressee's address and the item has no return address on the outside, it goes to a section called the Returned Mail Office (used to be called the Dead Letter Office). where the item is opened (they are about the only people authorised to open mail in the system). They search the contents to try to identify the sender or addressee and forward the item if possible.

If there is anything of value in the package, it is catalogued and filed pending receipt of a Missing Article Enquiry Form.

Similar to the Police, if the item remains unclaimed after a set period of time (I think it is 12 months but I'm not sure on that) the item will be auctioned off.

Cheers...Dave

Just find someone with the same last name in that neighbourhood, get 'em "bumped" & you'll probably run into who you wanted at the funeral.
Unless they weren't related, then just eat the food & drinks at the wake & leave quietly.....

no i would be a bit more diplomatic,
countries a bit more laid back than suburbia,
box, is supposed to be so high
slot, so wide & high
& if the postie doesnt like it he can give you grief and make you change it, or go to the post office and collect your mail!
Me i dont really care as long as its not going to stuff up my back by stretching and turning to reach your letterbox, then ive got no hassles (try doing it from a XXXXbox postie bike everyday for a year and see how you go!)

I rolled up to the [Naughty Pottyword]riffs office to climb on the amnesty bandwagon and ended up with the jerk trying to take my toys off me, end result was today in court to tell em i'll pay $10 per month or lock me up. I got the payment as i want it but amnesty dont apply so thats an extra 2 grand, bloody thieves !!! Cop tried getting me for no seat belt last week but i squirmed out of it. Imagine that, a new fine already :( But i was lucky coz he got a good veiw of me. Phew.

neds troubles.. Years ago a mate of mine got canned for b@e, so has a criminal record. anyway he did his time etc., then years later the local mechanic he used did some unauthorised work on his car he had put it in for a service and the guy did a major overhaul. anyway ted refused to pay so the mechanic took him to court, and with his record the judge had no problem believing the mechanic, and ordered Ted to pay. Ted pleads poverty out of work 3 starving kids and screaming wife. So asks for time to pay. Judge gives him 12 months to pay. Ted then says he does not have a cheque account or credit card, and does not have a car, and the mechanic is 10 k away not on a bus route, can the judge order that the mechanic has to stop by and pick up the $10 a week personally.
After about 2 months the mechanic apparently got pssed off with the inconvenience and never bothered coming around, so complete bill was never paid.
Personally with the theft of mail in my neighborhood becoming an epidemic I have a post office box so I know I will get my mail.
