Singapore — There were plenty of messages of appreciation on the Reddit online news forum after a user uploaded a photo of postmen delivering letters during heavy rain.
Redditor @tintinfoo on Monday (July 27) had shared a heartwarming photo of the postmen not letting the weather prevent them from doing their work.
“Heavy downpour delivering letters … thank you postman! Underappreciated sometimes,” the netizen wrote.
Singapore has been experiencing heavy rain lately, making it difficult for people like postmen and delivery riders to do their work. It was, therefore, not surprising that the men in the photo received many “thank you” messages from netizens.
While some praised the postmen for continuing with work despite the unfavourable weather conditions, others felt that SingPost should take better care of its workers, making sure they ride vehicles they would be safer in especially during rainy days.
One person also encouraged Singaporeans to thank postmen and postwomen in person for their hard work.
Earlier, Singaporeans had rallied behind a Grab rider who was tasked with delivering food to Seletar Island, which is located off the northern coast of the country.
According to a report in asiaone.com, Twitter user @rxzhael took to social media on Sunday (July 26) to share his experience with a Grab Delivery Partner Support agent, who asked him to make a food delivery to an island.
“I ride bike not submarine,” he said.
Grab Singapore later issued a public apology for the incident and said the agent would undergo “additional coaching”. /TISG
