A mail delivery man is under fire after he was caught urinating on a couple’s doorstep, according to a statement released by Royal Mail of the United Kingdom.
The Exeter, United Kingdom mail delivery man has since been punished for his bad behavior.
“The employee faced internal disciplinary action for his actions,” Royal Mail said.
Luke Osborne and Keyleigh Rawlings, who are residents on Exe Street, explained that they had decided to take action against the suspect after their doorstep was left stinking of urine numerous times.
Osborne said: “For months my partner and I have been having to walk through the urine on the steps of our entrance and we had to wash down it constantly as the smell was awful. Keyleigh is expecting our baby and it’s so unhealthy. The entrance to our house is private with steps to our front door.”
Osborne decided to hide behind the door to see if it was the work of drunk residents, but was surprised when he discovered that it was the mail delivery person, who was urinating on their doorstep.
He said: “When I left, there he was, full-frontal, relieving himself. I could not believe it. This is an employee of Royal Mail. He carries the name of the Queen and there was taking a dump on my step.”
The couple proceeded to out the Royal Mail employee.
A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “Royal Mail expects the highest standards of conduct of our employees while doing their deliveries, and this individual faced internal disciplinary action.”
