Ventured out today on a big trip. To the post office. I live next to the post office.

  1. They are same the world over I think, queues and waiting. I have to venture into mine soon to renew my passport, in case I feel the urge to travel again…

    1. Yes, queues are ubiquitous. It was strange to see a queue in this post office because it’s quite a large one for such a small town. Wishing you all the patience you need when renewing your passport!

  3. I worked in Finland for while. Post Office waiting is a special art there.

    1. Really? Sounds intriguing! I admit I was waiting in the post office quite artlessly.

      1. In Finland where I was it seemed as though no one wanted to be served, or to finish being served when it was their turn. Just very quiet, and slow, slow, slow, slow… zzzzz

          1. Yes, and self deprecating – They joke that they only came out of the trees a generation ago, so they have no small talk.

          2. This is not what I’d think of Finnish people. I can’t see any reason why they should underestimate themselves. But self-deprecation is my favourite mode, so I’d probably thrive in Finland!
