"Good morning, Royal Mail Customer Services, I'm Matthew, how can I help?"
"I'm phoning because my parcel's trashed!"
"And your point is?"
"The goods are freakin' damaged. It was a present for my young son."
"Listen, maggot. Let me give you a heads up on how the Royal Mail operates. Our parcel jockeys are poorly paid, undervalued, and they're up for a ruck. Every parcel that passes through their hands they kick the shit out of. That's job satisfaction. That's sticking it to the man."
"Actually, that's sticking it to the customer."
"Whatever."
"I'm flabbergasted."
"Good. Have a nice day."

    Does this count as a Drabble if it's lifted straight from the Postman's Manual 101? Nice, I love it.
