    This morning, December 15th, 2010 -- a date which will live in infamy -- One of my items was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Royal Mail while in transit

    The package was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Royal Mail, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace on deliveries.

    Indeed, one hour after Royal Mail air squadrons had commenced bombing my package, the Royal Mail ambassador to my package and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent package. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack.

    It will be recorded that the distance of London from Royal Mail makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Royal Mail government has deliberately sought to deceive my package by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

    The attack yesterday on my package has caused severe damage to my item. I regret to tell you that very many packages have been lost. In addition, packages have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between Scotland and London.


    Royal Mail has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the delivery area. The facts of today and yesterday speak for themselves. The recipient of the packages have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our item.

    As commander in chief of the package, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against our package.

    No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the recipient of the packages in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

    I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger our packages.

    Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

    With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph -- so help us God.

    I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Royal Mail on Wednesday, December 15th, 2010, a state of war has existed between my package and Royal Mail.


    -------


    If you want your stuff to arrive in one peice - Dont use Royal Mail, f**king wankers couldnt handle a lump of wood without it shattering to a million peices.

    and tests have proved again n again that the only way to make sure your letters or items even reach there destination let alone being in the same condition you sent it in is to make the deliveries yourself

    We shall fight on the streets and cul-de-sacs,
    we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the airmail, we shall defend our stamps, whatever the cost may be,
    we shall fight on the mailboxes,
    we shall fight on the collection points,
    we shall fight in the Post Offices and drop-off boxes,
    we shall fight in the delivery vans;
    we shall never surrender.

    :mad:

    I have a new found hatred for the Royal Mail after I found out the postman murdered my Dog last week.

    I'm not being humorous, I actually hate the impatient ballbags for killing my Dog. Drove over him and burst him right in-front of my old man. Good thing I wasn't there as I would have fucked the guy up.

    :(

    Personally, I have had no problems with Royal Mail, perhaps I have not used their service enough?

    The local RM collection point has extended hours this time of year (6:30am - 8:00pm), and I have a package waiting. So I turned up outside the office this morning at 6:35am expecting it to be open (I usually go to work a bit earlier than this). Only it is still shut.

    So I wait.

    And knock.

    There are people inside, I can see them. And they have seen me.

    And yet I still wait.

    6:55am one of them finally comes and opens the door for me. About bloody time.

    Except they can't find my package, as they have a backlog of missed deliveries and it wont be ready for collection until later this afternoon.

    Awesome.

    Unfortunately, yes I am. My family are devastated. He was 20 years old so he only had a year or 2 left and being crushed by a dildo postman is a horrible way to die.

    My condolences InnocentCriminal.

    My family went through a similar thing: our family dog was hit on our driveway (we lived on a farm) by one of the tradesmen that was doing work on the house. Unfortunately she wasn't killed instantly and was in considerable distress, so the tradesman had to hit her over the head with a hammer to finish it - all in front of my mother. It wasn't really their fault, our dog would run out in front of traffic on the driveway everyday - she was going to get hit eventually.

    But then a couple of weeks later at a party the builder (he was my age) was laughing about the whole situation in front of me. It cut a bit close to the bone so I punched him out. Dick.

    was any thing done about your dog? I the postman behind the wheel should have got suspend with no pay for a few weeks at least. if that was my dog that got it, youd bet your ass id be all over R.M not just trying to get a fat pay out but for justice. they can just go around running over peoples dogs and not have a single hint of guilt or remorse about what theyve just done. accident or not.

    but for them to not pursue the matter is rediculous - your dog is a part of your family and they wouldnt like it if one of their R.M colleagues ran over one of their family members while on the road so why should it make any difference at all if it was someones pet they ran over??

    I doubt the postie was even given a slap on the wrist for it - all he probably did was report the incident to his shift manager, drop the van off at engineering to have it checked for damages and then took the bus home.

    what a bunch of fucking scum. i am ashamed to have worked for them in the previous years

    My parents can barely speak to me on the phone so I doubt they've even been able to do anything about it.

    I'll hopefully speak to them tonight.

    I don't think the postman hung around to say anything.
