Listen in, listen Ian!
I've been reminded of a more than usually annoying trip to the Post Office I had this week. When I arrived, there was someone at the counter with a million large packages that she wasn't sure which method of delivery she required. Then the woman behind the counter noticed that they didn't have postcodes on, so she decided to go and get the book to look them up. So, with my lunch hour ticking away she proceeded to look through the book, increasingly looking mystified before looking at the cover and exclaiming "Oh! This isn't the postcodes directory is it?" What? What? How can it possibly take you more than three seconds to work that out based on the fact that it DOESN'T HAVE THE FUCKING POSTCODES IN IT?

She went and got the other book, shortly after which The Man, who I presume is her husband got back from whatever out he'd been, and after helping out with the reading experiment for a while he opened another position. I approached, and slid my letter under the glass to him:

"I'd like to send this with guaranteed next day delivery please."

"Which day?"

The postcodes directory is a book of addresses that you use to look up the postcode, if I remember rightly from my days processing credit agreements.
