Teacher torn over what colour to paint her front door is given a helping hand from her postman – and social media users praise the Royal Mail worker for their ‘great taste’

  • Elizabeth Pocklington, from Nottingham, was struggling to pick a colour for door
  • Painted various swatches on the front door – which were spotted by the postie
  • Female postwoman popped a note through her door offering her opinion
  • Note was shared on social media where many users praised her ‘good taste’ 

A Royal Mail postie has been praised on social media after leaving a note offering decorating advice through the letterbox of someone planning to repaint their front door.

Elizabeth Pocklington, a science teacher from Nottingham, was struggling to choose a colour to replace the black and had painted several swatches ranging from cream to green.

Having deduced the owners of the home were torn, the postal worker popped a sweet handwritten note, penned on a ‘Sorry you were out’ card, through their door with a suggestion.

They wrote: ‘Second green up from the bottom of door looks the best,’ followed by a smiley face.

Elizabeth shared a photo of the note and her multicoloured door on Twitter on Tuesday, writing: ‘We were struggling to choose a front door colour… thank you to the postie for helping us out,’ followed by rolling on the floor laughing emojis. 

Her tweet went viral, notching up 3,200 retweeted and 81,600 likes – with many people praising the postman’s ‘good taste’. 

Many people urged Elizabeth to take their advice, with one joking: ‘You have to pick the one the postie chose or else they will see for all eternity that you didn’t go with their choice and that would be kinda awkward.’

Another branded the person behind the note the ‘best postie ever’, adding: ‘I prefer the darker sage green at the top! Not that it is anyone’s choice other than yours.’

Royal Mail later shared a photo of the door and note on its official Facebook page, captioning the post: ‘When you are struggling to choose a colour for your front door… your local postie will help you out!’  

The post evoked more than 10,000 reactions and 541 comments – with several joking it must have been a female postman – and they were right. 

One Facebook user claimed: ‘The postie deffo picked the right shade!’ while one quipped: ‘I knew it would be a woman.’

Another wrote: ‘Haha that’s fab! Well they obviously have seen a few doors in their time, I’d do it that colour and leave a big bar of Dairy Milk out for their great advice.’ 

‘Love this, I bet the postie had a little smile as they posted it,’ enthused another. 

Elizabeth followed up her tweet, admitting in the end she had gone against the postie’s advice and had ordered ‘the middle one’. 

She did, however, admit that the sweet moment had ‘made her day’.
