... with strikes. Our mail delivery stystem is erratic, to say the least, due to the mail workers' strikes. They are being clever and not striking all the time, just 2 or 3 days a week. Quite enough to hold everything up. I am not happy cos between us Mr Fixit and I are expecting 5 packages, some of which were posted several weeks ago, and the only post we've had is 2 letters in the past week, and they were both junk mail! Locally our refuse collectors are also striking, and have been for 9 weeks now. The council have told us to still put our bins out for emptying on our normal day (Saturday for us), and bring them in after 8pm. We have obediently been doing that. Other people have just been leaving them out. We have also been doing their job for them, and taking our rubbish to the local dump. Imagine how annoyed I was yesterday (Tuesday) to come back from shopping to find the bin men had been. This meant those who ignored the council's instructions, have had their bins empty. We have not.
So now you know why I am fed-up with strikes. It's all about ME!!!!
