lol but I cant see the difference (is that because I'm in the uk myself?) surely my post should have a tint of the Irish accentDredge wrote:I enjoy reading the UK folks' posts. Your dialect really comes out in the typing. The typing is eloquent, and I can almost hear the accent while im reading!

As his name suggests, Plod is a postman, and is probably a parody of the children's character Postman Pat. Unlike Pat, Postman Plod is an incredibly lazy, drunken, miserable and bad tempered man and a chronic malingerer. He obviously hates his job and hates the people he is obliged to deliver letters to.
Plod is bone idle and lethargic and frequently takes extended periods off work with questionable excuses that only hold water because they are supported with notes from his doctor who is just lazy as he is. The pair of them often concoct some excuse for time off work so that they can go and play golf. Whenever he turns up for work at all Plod is completely lacking in any work ethics, and often enjoys opening and reading the mail he is meant to be delivering. He is not even bothered about hiding this activity, and once, after reading someone's bank statement, either mocking or embarrassing that person for their poor financial situation (another example is when he exposes a resident's arrival of brown-enveloped 'jazz mags' to the whole street).
Seems a bit pointless to deliver them nowHouseholders in Stockport have received thousands of items of post nearly four years after they were originally sent.
A number of tax statements and out-of-date cheques were among the 17,500 items stolen by a Royal Mail worker after they were posted in December 2005 and January 2006.
The letters were recently delivered to the homes with a SK6 postcode without any further explanation, the Manchester Evening News reports.
Doreen Dilkes, 62, of Bredbury, received a notice informing her that she could appeal against her redundancy from a job she had lost three years earlier.
Her husband Sid said: "We couldn't believe it when we looked at the postal date and saw the letters had been posted so long ago."
Another late item was a postcard sent by a girl from Germany to her long-since split boyfriend.
A Royal Mail spokesman said: "We can only apologise that anyone who has received delayed items of mail without any explanation. There should have have an explanatory letter and an apology."
