Postman Plod


So I have been trying to apply for temporary work at the Post Office, who as you'd imagine have a certain increase in December. I applied for a full time job with them earlier in the year but the password I used then is now invalid; they send you a link to change the password and that goes to a null page on their website, with the result that I missed a deadline today coz I couldn't actually log in. Wankers.

I could have set up a new email address to forward to my current one but that's a fair amount of pissing about when it would just be nice if the RM website did what it said. It's not like I don't want to work hard and earn a shekel.

I like my regular post man - he's a nice, cheery chap and he always says hello if he sees me about in BS5 as he knows me from seeing me on my wall, or seeing me out and about running in the morning these last few weeks. It's the firm he works for that I am despondent about. Kinda puts me in mind of the caricature from Viz comic, Postman Plod.

have you a black and white cat!?

No, I'd get a dog before a cat! Dogs are simple and straightforward which is why blokes like dogs more than cats, I reckon.

Postman, huh. Could be interesting. Would make for interesting blogging.

Hey you! I was just thinking about you as it's been a day or two since a Scargosun post!

I did a weekend post so I took Monday off. You know I actually knew a few people on your My Island UK edition. Ramsay I am on the fence about. He seems bi-polar and that requires meds. If he got those I think he'd be ok. The cast of East Enders I wonder about, since they are actors. If there are specific people you know that ACT like them, they should def go.
