A postwoman who bragged about waiting two seconds before leaving a missed delivery card has been flooded with replies saying she should be fired.
Royal Mail employee Laura Orgill posted a video of herself on TikTok captioned: ‘When a customer takes longer than 2 seconds to answer the door’.
She can be seen laughing as posts the flyer telling the recipient they must go to a sorting office or re-arrange delivery.
It didn’t go down well with her followers, with one person commenting: ‘Joke’s on you — I’ve sent this to your employer.’
One said she’d be ‘sacked tomorrow’ and another asked: ‘It’s been 24 hours since you posted. Have you still got your job?’
Another viewer said the joke was ‘hilarious but angers me at the same time’, whole someone else asked: ‘What if someone’s old? Give people a chance.’
One commenter responded ironically: ‘When you are wheelchair bound and can’t rush to the door and they force you to collect the package three miles away.’
Laura replied to one commenter, saying: ‘When did TikTok get so serious???’
But one follower replied: ‘Cause it’s legit how the Royal Mail act. It’s not even satire. If anything, reality is worse.’
Laura, 26, calls herself the TikTok postie and has 759,500,000 followers and 34.3million likes on the platform, where she uploads videos chronicling her round in the Rhondda valley, South Wales.
She said later: ‘Comments like this really upset me. All I do is try to upload silly videos day in day out to cheer people up because I know how much they do in these uncertain times and people like this have the audacity to try and bring me down.
‘I’m one of the only full-time workers during the pandemic – when parcels went through the roof – which was so hard.
‘All I do while working, doing a hard day’s graft, is try and find some time to make some videos as I know how much it cheers people up.

‘People think I make loads and have six figures in the bank, that’s not the case at all.
‘Please be mindful of what you’re commenting because it can really really affect people.’
A Royal Mail spokesperson said: ‘Our postmen and postwomen always go the extra mile to get customers their mail as quickly and as conveniently as possible.
‘We have discussed this with the employee, and reminded her of the need to always uphold the highest standards’.
It isn’t the first time that a postie has raised eyebrows after their antics were shared online.
A Scottish postman quit his job earlier this year after his Sea Shanty song went viral.
Nathan Evans, 26, from Airdrie in North Lanarkshire, was given a record deal by Polydor after fans spotted him on TikTok singing the ancient sailor songs.
Postman Roo Rawal was sacked after he was filmed by a member of the public urinating in a lay-by while on duty.
He later won almost £40,000 for unfair dismissal after a tribunal heard ‘there is not a person alive’ who hadn’t at some point been forced to do the same thing.
