The new Post Office delivery operative robot is an interesting mix of retro chic and post apocalyptic industrial anarchism.
As much as I like the reintroduction of the name G.P.O (I wonder if they’ll bring back Busby too?) I’m not sure this new dog and ned retardant safety equipment will meet the approval of customers. I can see the android postie getting as far as “I’ve got a registered letter Mrs McPie, could you…” before a sweeping brush is broken across its head and shrieks of terror uttered from across the threshold.
I like the real posties and it’s not just because I’m getting old and reactionary, if they can replace that fine body of folks with mindless automatons, then are any of us really safe whatever our occupations?
