Just because you've seen them, don't spoil it for everybody else.  Angry

So far this September I haven't been in a shop and by downloading or streaming TV programmes it means I miss out on adverts. Therefore, I thought I was doing well. You fiend!  Tongue

I went into the local Tesco Metro for an ice cream when I finished delivering the Mail today & they were next to the ice cream cabinet.

To further cheer up the garage and shed folk on MMM, we also have the TV joys of “Strictly X Off”!

See, that's why I don't own a TV!
Always on a diet mate Sad I walk 10 miles a day & according to a health programme I watched on iPlayer a while ago, (no TV, but I do watch occasional shows on the 'net), Postmen are the "healthiest" profession in the country & burn off 1,500 calories a day! My phone says "Congratulations, you've reached your 10,000 step target for the day" every morning at about 10.30, but I don't finish delivering till 2.30

Mind you, you have to factor in the resultant dodgy knees, bad backs, etc. etc. resulting from that "exercise", Mr. M!! Grin Grin

Very true -I had over a month off work earlier this year with a buggered knee. Returned to work to receive a 1st stage disciplinary warning, despite it being a work related injury. Royal Mail aren't known as a caring employer Sad

I hope you replied to your HR department in writing, stating that you felt this was unfair due to it being a 'work related injury'. This in itself may get them to rescind the warning.

even with a doctors note they don't care.
company i work for can sack you after 6 months even with doctors notes. apparently its for the good of the company.
and as in Andy's case were not talking small company's!!!! were just numbers not people.

It's a 3 stage system. After you've actually been sacked, you can appeal. Most employees win the appeal & are able to return, but by then they've had time away from the job & a lot of people don't want to come back -so the company wins.
I'm not a big unionist, but since we were privatised, the management style has become increasingly confrontational.
I just want to go in, do my job & go home again.
We've just recently been told that if we can't complete our rounds within our shift & take Mail back to the depot, because they're constantly increasing the delivery areas, it'll be treated as unofficial industrial action -trying to force us to work longer hours.
I enjoy the bit out on the streets, but the bit in the depot's not enjoyable at all.

When Mike was doing agency driving he absolutely refused to work for Parcelforce (are they still part of the Post Office or Royal Mail or whatever they call it now?).  They expected him to stay out over his hours to deliver every parcel, but they wouldn't pay for the extra time.
And if he did try and get it all done, the Union bloke had a go at him!
