The Post Office

Just a quick one.

It's 2:08PM and my post has just arrived.

I thought postal workers start at like 4 or 5 AM?

There must be a lot of mail to sort that wasn't delivered on the weekend.

It's Royal Mail and not the Post Office that delivers the mail. Everyone gets this wrong including the politicians.
As part of Royal Mail's cost cutting they have changed postman's hours so that they can no longer start early (i.e. unsocialable hours). This means they start later and finish later while having to deliver twice as much as before at a minimum of 4mph.
It also means that Postmen who used to supplement their pay by doing afternoon jobs are now unable to. And this is all done under the banner of "modernisation".
