I’ve never noticed this before, but apparently our Royal Mail service have mastered time travel which is surely a very useful ability to have in their line of work.
This afternoon I took a brisk stroll to the post box to drop off some mail before last collection. I wasn’t sure what time the last collection was so I checked the mailbox to see. It was then when I understood the secret behind the efficiency of our great British postal system… time travel!
The collection times notice on the front of the post box reads “Last collection Mon-Fri 5:51 pm.” But right underneath that, for those people who might find they’ve missed that final collection, there is some further information. “A later collection is made from Lancelyn Court Post Office at 5:45 pm.”
It made me laugh anyway.
