I have written a lot about the postal service, because I think it remains an essential lifeline for many older people and means an occaisional visit from a friendly face. ( To read my earlier blogs click on “Grumblesmiles Post” in the TAG CLOUD) However, one of my consistent complaints has been the deluge of junk mail we all receive.
Now it appears an inventive postie in Birmingham has found an eco-friendly solution to the problem. He buried more than 20,000 letters which he claimed were junk mail in his back garden. Sadly his short-sighted bosses didn’t see it as a great service improvement. The creative free-spirited postman was prosecuted and given an 8 month jail sentence.
Many of his customers may well have voted him :-
