The Royal Mail employee came across the note, which was taped to the property’s front door, on December 1.The handwritten message read: ‘Royal Mail. Don’t even think about putting a card through the door without ringing the doorbell and pretending that the delivery was attempted but no one was in – as happened on Saturday.

‘We were in all day and we’ll be in today, Tuesday. RING THE BELL AND DELIVER THE PARCEL.’Taken aback by the note, the postman shared a picture of it in a group for other mail delivery workers, adding that he hoped the house ‘enjoy collecting their mail from the office over Christmas’.

The post quickly caught other members’ attention, with many commenting on the note.The note stuck to a door which the postman took exception to (Picture: Kennedy News and Media)Some pointed out it was one of the busiest times of the year for postmen and women and being unable to deliver parcels only meant they had more to carry.

One person simply called the note ‘rude’ and another said it was ‘such an unnecessarily snarky note to leave’.While others said there were numerous explanations for why the residents didn’t hear the postman at their door.In a series of comments responding to questions from other postal workers, the postman said: ‘[I’m] not planning on delivering there in the future, it’s the second time I’ve been spoken to like this…’

‘It wasn’t me [who left the attempted delivery note], probably a parcel driver but it’s my delivery I’ve had for the last 10 years.The postman explained that he will not be delivering to the address while the incident is looked into (Picture: Kennedy News and Media)

‘[But it] would have been one of the parcels we left for someone else to do, either way it’s aimed at us.‘On the positive side, I got a nice tip from one of the decent customers not long after.’Over the last two years, the postman has openly written about his ‘naughty list’ stating that anyone who leaves notes on their door gets put on there, from which there is ‘no way off’.

Royal Mail has since reportedly backed their postman’s stance of not delivering to the house, as when asked for an update on the situation he said: ‘[I’ve been] told not to deliver to them and ignore them for now until it gets looked into.’
