Re: I'm not sure what's worse
"Recieving the photos on a mobile phone in the post, or"
Actually I'm not sure whats so funny about that. The farmer may have lost the cable, not have any drivers for his PC if he even owned a PC, the phone might not have had an SD card and the photos were in its on board memory, or he may not have had an internet connection or if he did it was dial up only in which case it could well be quicker to post the phone than upload the pictures! And being a farmer he'd be busy 12 hours a day and probably had better things to do than visit an office that could be miles away to deliver it by hand.
Its easy to take the piss if you don't know the facts.
