Time to Waste

If you have 2 hours to waste, head for a Brussels Post Office.

Picture this: 20 counters of which only 2 are open; 50 people with various "postal" needs ranging from cash withdrawals, cash transfers, cash deposits, ID validation, none of which concerns actually sending mail. The lady in front of me has a badly wrapped, oddly-shaped package. We just know it will be a complex, time-consuming case. Shit! One of the counters has closed. It is 11h00. The disgruntled employee has to go to lunch. She will be back at 13h30...if at all.

Stupid me with my letter.
