I’m not sure exactly how the post usually gets delivered in the rest of the world, pushbike? on foot? owls? Here in Australia our post mostly arrives in the basket of red postie bikes zooming through the suburbs.
Any Aussie who saw this news report will know that seeing this postie ride at full pelt over a jump fully loaded with other peoples mail is not really unexpected, and, really, who can blame him?
If you are a young man riding a motorbike down a road, and there is a jump in the middle of it with a group of tradies standing around, I expect that it would take a superhuman effort to resist powering your machine over it too….. Clearly this postie couldn’t say no.
Once he limped his scraped bike back to the depot he did what any Aussie bloke would do, he told the boss he hit a kangaroo. He would have got away with it too if this video hadn’t been posted on the net.
