A post office visit with parcels for umpteenth time in several weeks, mostly seeing the same counter teller.
“Haven’t you got a parcel for China this time then?” Was it sarcasm or real surprise.
Remaining oblivious (best way) I say, “These are for the U.K. and by the way, this one is fragile, look, I have marked it in red pen.” I pay for the postage and take the packages to the receiving area. The teller drops the parcels into the gaping sacks.
“Excuse me, have you got any fragile stickers?” I ask.
“I’ve got tape with fragile on it.” He says and retrieves my parcel from the sack.
I watch while the larger than life ‘FRAGILE’ tape is applied. The teller picks up the parcel turns to show it to me saying, “Is that alright for you then? and… promptly drops it!
Did I hear it bounce… everyone is open mouthed including the other tellers, one rolls her eyes. 🙄
This is truly the stuff that farce is made of.
