Are You Sitting Comfortably?

17 March 2012

Then I’ll begin.

I’d like to tell you a story of the time when I worked for a company in Hertfordshire.  This was in the building which also housed a well-known hand-dyed yarn and publishing company.  In the same complex was a Post Office.

The yarn company sent out yarn, naturally, which appeared to get lost in the post with monotonous regularity. Apparently replacements also disappeared in the postal system.

The company I worked for sent parcels which contained beer.  They all reached their destinations.

I don’t know whether all these missing parcels were reported to the postal authorities or the police and I don’t want to make too many assumptions about postal workers. BUT I would have thought any investigation would have centred around teetotal Royal Mail employees with a passion for knitting perhaps?  Which would have maybe narrowed the field a bit.

PS:  I’ve amended this since I first posted it.  I said that the office was in Essex, but it was in Hertfordshire, on the Herts/Essex border.  Apologies to any Essex postal workers.

  1. Maybe they were selling the yarn on ebay, much like one could sell, say, Rowan mags?

    Oh, wait…


  2. Curiouser and curiouser! LOL
