Sometimes, inefficiences happen

Today, I left work to go to the sorting office, where I picked up a parcel that the postman hadn't delivered to our home yesterday. (Too big for the letterbox.)

Happily, there's a gate in the back fence of our carpark, which allowed me to walk the hundred metres to the sorting office. Otherwise, I would have had to go the long way, which would have involved first passing the offices of the company that had sent me the parcel.

I do wish Icould just say to them "Keep it at your reception, send me a postcard when it's ready", but that'd only confuse the poor dears.
