Here is our latest corker, and no, it is not a Christmas cheer party piece. A ridiculours charade I would go along with as a starting point.
Our worn and weary MAIN POST OFFICE is going to be
closed for at least two weeks in January for 'upgrading'. Dealing with
the three years old, (plus some) hole in the ceiling and the leak from
the roof that runs along the cables into a bucket in the customer area,
The helpful [not!] people in a London UK head office
have advised customers who wish to deal with the business elements that
main post offices are authorised to do, for example, checking passport
and driving licence applications, to go to the next nearest main post
office. To get to it, we would have to take a ferry journey of 21 miles across the sea!!!!!!
oh dear, well, there are a couple of sub alternatives, two sub-post offices equidistant,
about five miles from where I live that can deal with general services.
Alternatively, if you fancy a 40 miles round trip, there's another post office that can undertake some of the work.
leads you to think, (being kind and generous here) that either maps do
not exist, or, if they do, they do not show major seas. Then again,
we do know some internet maps even move land masses to different parts
of the globe.
