Hi, newbie here. I'm not sure this is a 'consumer' issue, but I do need tangible help . For years I have collected my pension from my Post Office. Or I did until 24th August, when after transacting my pension, I went to pick up papers, when the newly installed ex-Guildford - nightclub bouncer? - sub-postmaster dashed round the counter , slammed his hand on the paper and bellowed I am not having papers from his shop - indeed to enforce his still voluble and physical aggression he hard gripped my right arm - it felt like a stab wound, and frog-marched me from the shop. Thanks to an intended entering customer the doorway was blocked, or I'd have been in a final thrust onto the pavement! This is the gist of my very traumatic and wholly unwarranted ordeal . My arm is still acutely painful, and I'm having relentless physio. I complained to PO, fobbed off by 'customer services' (sis) right through to Executive - citing there's no CCTV in the papers section (pardon, right next to the till?); that this is a non-incident as there is no case for him to answer! (pardon?) and so not even a contrite apology; yet they refuse giving me his surname, et al; that I am not prevented (by Post Office) using that Post Office! I am not risking my life to attempt entering Hades again! Post Office consider the matter done and dusted - heads in sand would, wouldn't they (rhetorical). I am absolutely abhorrent a representative of the post office is allowed to even touch, let alone violently manhandle a customer (frail, disabled pensioner to boot), without someone taking responsibility. Where do they get these (BUCHAN) mental incompetents from? Who WILL help. [i take no comfort that he has upset many customers, yet wonders why his takings went down in three weeks; that a 15-year longstanding employee he initially praised helping him, is now 'incompetent' (huh?) and he's given a "written warning" to (inducing untenable stress, making her ill]. WHO WILL HELP, pls?
