Royal Snail (Part 1)

Arrived home last night to find 2 "Sorry, you were out" cards lying in my hall. The post man had been at 10:06 am and the two parcels he could not deliver went back to the depot.
I went down this morning at around 9am to collect them from Tomb Street. "They're not here" I was told. "You're supposed to wait 24 hours"... "So if I stand here for another 45 minutes they will appear?" I asked... "Perhaps it's the bad weather holding it up" he said... I did smile at this point and asked... " Bad weather?, are they being flown down from Mullusk on a paper aeroplane?" He then got the hump and said I should have rang first.....
I went off for my daily swim
