Going postal

Helevision has had her very own Monty Python moment in the Post Office this week.

Being an errant grandchild, I had left it until yesterday to post a birthday card to Nanny Helevision, who turns 86 tomorrow.

So, feeling slightly ashamed I asked how much it would cost for special delivery to arrive today.

“Oh that’ll be £4. 70” said the counter assistant.

“Right, and to get there Saturday?”

“£6.70”

Hmm.

“So, it’ll cost me more to get it there a day later then?”

 

“Yep” she replied with a smile.

Gannet-on-a-stick, anyone?
