The parcelforce man delivered to me a box of wine today.
As you can see it’s from the Naked Wine company. http://www.nakedwines.com/
This reminds of the time (pre blog days) when he brought a similar box into the post office.
At the time an older lady was at the counter posting a letter to France.
As the delivery chap came in through the door, as in good old Catchphrase tradition, I said what I saw.
“It’s the naked delivery man”
Well, if you ever saw the film Carrie, the lady customer’s head swivelled round in anticipation at the thought of a naked man stood next to her.
She was a bit disappointed so she regained her closure at went out of the door.
A few seconds later she popped her head back inside the shop and said
“Did you post my French Letter for me?”
“Yes” I said with a straight face.
When she closed the door we then had a good chuckle about both events.
You know how squeamish I am from previous blogs.
Today someone bought a card because her brother had chopped off three of his fingers (two were saved!). I tried hard not to ask too many questions about it.
A local lady came in a put a card on the scales “One for ee, and three else”.
And they think I talk strange from up north.
Great weather outside again today as constantly customers reminded us “It’s too nice to be in here working”.
