19th April 2016 - Like this Post? Not this Post box

Thought for the day :"As space telescopes use mirrors - we will never know if there are vampires in space…"

I spend some of my time developing a nice little gallery which illustrates some of the worse aspects of the driving public...   However, sometimes it is not the driver but the organisation that gets it very wrong...  Take this example...

This is the Tesco Express at Chobham in Surrey...   you can clearly see the parking space which you cannot use...

Royal Mail has confirmed that it is looking into the matter and plans to move the postbox to a suitable alternative location.
“The postbox was conveniently placed, blocking the parking space in this busy store.
“We are not sure what came first, the space or the box but find it bizarre that no contractor realised this when working on the site.

A spokesman for Tesco said: “We always try our best to make it as easy as possible for customers to shop with us.
“The postbox was in place before the store opened but we’re very grateful to the customer for raising it with us.”

Royal Mail spokesman Sally Hopkins said: “The postbox was moved to its current location, as agreed by both parties, when the shop became a Tesco Express.
“There were no parking bays marked out at that time.
“We are now looking to move this box as it is too low in the ground.
“We will be in touch with Tesco to discuss a suitable alternative location that is easily accessible for customers and our postmen and women who collect from the box, as well as making sure it is clear of any underground pipework or services.”

Seems strange that no-one noticed until it was brought to their notice by a passer by....

So, with those few thoughts
Cheers !
