You Can Take the Time from Your Break

That’s the Royal Mail for you: cheapskate and penny pinching on every level. The company we work for can’t even afford to allow us to take a little time to ask some of the questions and to get some of the answers that will help us to make an informed decision about our future.

From the London Review of Books.

  1. Hi. You seem to hate your job, or at least your employer. Rather than keep moaning, maybe look for alternative employment?

    1. Strange outlook which I have never understood. If you thing something is wrong and is holding back your employer from improving their service your stance is to shut up and get on with it, or to leave and let the business go down the pan. Its a good job Amazon and Tescos etc don’t do the same with their Customer Service or they’d go out of business. Being an employee does not mean you have to agree with your employer or even not bring things to the attention of the Public. In fact if I ran a business I would try to harness the passion most posties show for their job rather than attack or denigrate them. There is at the moment an unused and valuable resource going to waste at RM and that’s the posties dedication, knowledge, passion and flexibility. If RM could harness it successfully then RM could be the successful company and envy of the world, it once was.

  2. I love my job. What I hate is incompetence and stupidity. Unfortunately I’m not in a position to change the management, but I’m entitled to express my views. It’s a free society. Why should I change my job? I’m having far too much fun writing about it to want to do that. Meanwhile, most posties don’t have a choice. How easy do you think it is to just get a new job in these days of recession? I’ll stay where I am if you don’t mind and continue to give the public the information they need in order to see what is going on in what is still, for the time being, a public service.
