get back to normal quickly, you mean late post, missing letters and rubber bands thrown of the floor then

It is not as easy as that although the applicants must be pleased, better than walking the streets.

"better than walking the streets."

It is walking the streets!

I bet a lot of the applications are from people who want to find their lost post themselves.

My attempt at humour has bypassed you then?

Funny enough, the local postman and myself were talking this morning about strike action and the statement of 30.000 new posties being recruited.

Then we remembered when untrained 'casuals' who were doing rounds unsupervised, and leaving letters etc at the wrong addresses and locations, with the end results, that some people had to redelivery mail to their neighbours, area district or return same to post boxes.
