Very often we hurl abuses and hit out at our postmen each time our parcels or mail is delayed.

But, having a brother who works as a postman, I just want to share the kinds of hurdles they go through daily.

From risking their lives riding their motorcycles through traffic each day, they also have to deal with bad weather and worst of all, dogs.

To most dogs, the postman is their favourite victim and almost on a daily basis, they are chased by them.

The matter is made worse when there are many strays in the area, with more than three dogs chasing them at a time.

On top of that, they also have to deal with rude customers who blame them for late deliveries.

The postman is merely the messenger, he does not determine the schedule for the day.

Each time my brother leaves for work in the morning, I pray he makes it home in the evening.

Please be kind to your postman. They are also human and have families waiting for them back home.
