Peaked cap, sworn oath, messenger deities, it's a calling, needs big characters, bold and roving, noble. I'd hate to be a post officer, I'd post all my letters back in the postbox for the next postman to do and hope they wouldn't realise.

They have my full support, I've pritsticked razorblades on the underside of the postbox flap to jimmy any blacklegs trying to deliver my court summons and unpaid bills.

Default to the negative

You forgot the swagger. A postman needs an important swagger.

How can people who are not postal workers show support for the strike?

Beep your horn as you drive past is the traditional method, I believe.

The dark net has done wonders for making postmen relevant again. I bet they love it.

I don't drive or ride a bike unfortunately. Could do a thumbs up from the bus.

Got loads of post off the dark Web.

When I was working there last year one of the lads joked that a parcel he was sorting labelled "herbs" was in fact ganja, and pointed it out to me, laughing.

I froze for a few seconds then did a fake laugh and tried to rubbish the idea. "Haha! Sending drugs through the post! That's a hilarious idea. Bet it doesn't happen" .

My friend Dan says that the Queen kisses the exhaust pipe of every Post Office van that gets made to bless it and keep it safe. 

For doing this, every Christmas she gets to hunt a postman (chosen in a raffle) through the grounds of Sandringham. As she's gotten older the postman has to be handicapped in some way now.

Good to see this covered on the front page of the Morning Star

I'm glad I've not had to go back to RM this year. I'd feel like a scab, I bet the Xmas casuals work during a strike (which was mooted last year. Casuals aren't part of the union)

I am glad that the courts are an entirely impartial arbiter between the desires of workers and management.
