SingPost has confirmed that a postman who was caught on video throwing away mail instead of delivering them has been fired.

This comes after videos showing the employee being confronted by a man at Reflections at Keppel Bay on Wednesday (Feb 7) for failing to perform his work duties went viral online.

The confrontation is believed to have occurred after the man discovered that his flyers had gone undelivered. He also apparently found neat stacks of unopened letters in various dustbins at the condominium.

Based on the videos, the man had apparently spent “a few thousand dollars” printing 7,500 flyers at SingPost — only to realise that all 1,200 units in the residential complex did not receive them.

The man can be heard asking the SingPost employee if he had seen the flyers before and where the latter had delivered them to.

The employee insisted that he had delivered them all and said some units did not receive anything as there were not enough flyers left.

The man told the SingPost employee: “Not enough? Do you know how many units here? There are 1,200 units here and not one received the flyer.”

He also asked the employee whether he had thrown the flyers away.

“I’ll give you another chance. I have been observing you every day. Don’t play this game with me. You have played the wrong person. You didn’t think I would be living here, did you?

“There are 1,200 units here and I didn’t see you deliver the flyers to a single one. Have you done your duty? Do you know how much effort I spent making these things? Do you know? You are here to make a living. So am I.”

The man had also apparently found neat stacks of letters left unopened in dustbins at “every block” and believed that they were intentionally thrown away by the postman.

Holding a stack of letters, he told the employee that they would not have looked so neat in the dustbin if they had been thrown away by residents.

The man added: “Someone needs to take responsibility for this” and “I won’t let this matter rest. I am going to find out where my flyers are exactly. To you, it might be just another piece of paper. To me, it’s very important.”

This led the employee to complain about how his superiors treated him unfairly and how he had to work overtime without being compensated.

“I am very tired, do you know?” he lamented.

In response, the man said: “Who is the victim here? You? Or the customer? So people bully you and you bully others?” and “If [your boss] is unfair to you, that’s his fault. Have I been unfair to you?”

At the end of the confrontation, the SingPost employee said he truly thought he had delivered all the flyers and stopped after thinking he was done with every block.

He continued: “I am really sorry towards you. I didn’t know [the flyers were supposed to be delivered here too] and I didn’t ask you. This is an oversight of my duty.

“Anyway, I’m going back home on Friday’s flight and not returning. If not for this incident, I might still come back. It’s that simple.”
