A postman in Germany was reported by a colleague for working too fast.

He had worked out a more efficient route between the depots, making him quicker than other delivery staff, The Local quotes from the Münchner Merkur newspaper.

However his quick working led to the false accusation that he was throwing away mail instead of delivering it to its intended recipients.

"I admit that some of them are possibly logical," the postman's manager told the court of the 53-year-old's different routes.

She added that his methods were not allowed under the rules but had been informally tolerated.

Judge Isabella Hubert was also told that the postman was an efficient worker.

The man from Rosenheim near Munich escaped criminal charges following the investigation, though was given a reprimand for ignoring official procedures.

LOL that worker who complained is jealous. that worker made them look bad because they work slow like a snail!
I say fire the complainer. no one likes a stupid arse who can't deliver mail "efficiently" and at a "timely manner"

Huh? What the...? That colleague of his was probably jealous and scared that his job will be at risk since he's working like 10 times harder than him.

As long as the mail gets to the right recipients I can't see why working fast is a bad thing, isn't it a win-win-win situation? The complainer can learn from this guy and become faster too if he really wanted to.

Sounds like sour grapes from a lazy worker :P

I wonder what methods he was using that were not allowed under the rules but had been informally tolerated.
