SHE decided to get into the Christmas spirit early by decorating her front door with a huge red bow.
But after Emily Godfrey took to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook to share a picture of the door, she was inundated with comments from people pointing out the positioning of the bow.
In the snap, the £3.99 Home Bargains bow was seen going directly over her letterbox – leading to accusations that she wasn’t being very “considerate” of the postman.
“My other half is a postman and he categorically hates these door bows as they always go over the letterbox….” one wrote.
“I’m waiting for him to do his annual moan about them…”
“It’s so annoying!!!” another added, admitting that they add to rounds so much that other people get their post late – or not at all.
“They don’t realise how awkward it makes it and the extra time all adds up, meaning others later may end up not getting their mail when you run out of time!”
As a third agreed, writing: “Having been a postie I’m with your husband on this.
“You’re on a tight schedule to get the round done and you really can do without this.
“Yes, maybe a few seconds to put the post through the door but those seconds add up, you’re late back and the bosses moan.”
Following the backlash, Emily returned to the post to add an edit, in which she wrote: “The postman comments are killing me.
“It’s loose at the bottom. I slightly tuck it into the door when I shut it so it doesn’t flap in the wind.
“The ribbon is only long enough to go around the door. not top to bottom inside and out.
She also shared a picture of how her post had been put through the letterbox, writing alongside it: “Would you look at that… my postman has a brain to just move the bow.”
