Amazing! Stuck up a conversation with a postman. Has 24 years of experience. Asked him if emails, mobile phones and couriers have reduced the number of letters they deliver. Received surprising answers.
- The number of letters have increased many times because of the sheer number of high rise apartments instead of single homes.
- Even though the number of houses have grown over 10 times, the number of postmen continue to remain the same.
- The bulk of the letters they now deliver are bills and marketing mailers. Personal letters have dropped dramatically.
- The respect they used to get earlier has gone now. Many would eagerly wait for his arrival. Now, no one bothers as much because most of what they deliver is spam!
Who’d have thought?!
