How to use postman in a sentence?

  1. Evelyn Waugh:

    If, for instance, they have heard something from the postman, they attribute it to a semi-official statement; if they have fallen into conversation with a stranger at a bar, they can conscientiously describe him as a source that has hitherto proved unimpeachable. It is only when the journalist is reporting a whim of his own, and one to which he attaches minor importance, that he defines it as the opinion of well-informed circles.

  2. Jacinda Ardern:

    They are the publisher. Not just the postman.

  3. Bill Cosby:

    I won't, and I cannot answer that, it's really not fair, and you know that because all I have to do is say something similar to that and the next thing I know the postman is carrying a big bag, or whoever it is, it's saying 'defamation, defamation, defamation.'.

  4. Jacinda Ardern:

    We can not simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and that what is said on them is not the responsibility of the place where they are published, they are the publisher. Not just the postman.

  5. James M. Cain:

    The postman always rings twice.
