I went into a lovely post office the other day to post an item for my father
I queued up behind a sweet old dear
She was sending a letter
She removed the letter from her bag
But their was no name or address written on the letter
So the old dear said to the cashier "wait i have the address on a piece of paper in my bag"
So the old dear rumaged through the bag
Then the old lady said " in fact my daughter will know the address i will just phone her"
Old lady got mobile out of the bag and to ring her daughter
I nodded to the cashier to say " maybe serve me while the old lady was using the phone"
The cashier wandered off to sort some things at the back of the office
20 minutes had passed from me joining the queue
Old lady finished conversation and waited for the cashier to stop using the phone
Cashier returned the old lady had wrote the address on the letter
Old lady said "could i send this letter please"
cashier replied "of Course"
Cashier then said "that will be x amount of pounds and pence"
Old lady rumaged through bag to find x amount of pounds and pence
30 minutes had passed
Old ladies transaction was over
Old lady started to walk away
Old lady turned back and said "do you have any 1st class stamps"
Cashier replied "Yes "
Old lady said " I think its 1st class i need"
Cashier said " we have second class if you need them too"
Old lady said "i better take some of them too"
Old lady fumbled around in bag for money
40 minutes had passed
Old lady waddled off
After 42 minutes i got served
Question is should i have done this
