Christmas Cards displaying local school children’s artwork found dumped by suspected Australia Post Employee.
Federal Member for Longman, Terry Young, was disappointed to find out that the Christmas Cards that he had distributed by Australia Post were found dumped outside a Bribie Retirement Village.
“...I know this is a small cohort of people as the majority of Australia Post workers and sub-contractors I have met and dealt with are just good, honest hard-working people...”
The retirement village resident who found the discarded Christmas Cards in the garbage bin next to his letterbox was also shocked to see that the Australia Post employee had been “so close” to distributing to the resident letterbox’s but decided to dump them instead.
"The local school kids had put in so much effort in creating artwork that was featured on the Christmas Cards, in hope, that these would be shared with their families and the local community," said Terry Young.
“Every year a small number of people will contact me to say thank you for the card as it was the only one they received. It’s pretty rough when someone who is paid to deliver something takes it upon themselves to not do their job."
"Fortunately, I know this is a small cohort of people as the majority of Australia Post workers and sub-contractors I have met and dealt with are just good, honest hard-working people and wouldn’t dream of doing something like this. They too, are shocked when this happens.”
Mr Young is having his office print and distribute extra cards to those who have notified them that they haven’t received one.
