Pensioners Take Over The Post Office


Never go to a Post Office on State Pension payday.

I've just spent ages queuing for a stamp. In front of me were an army of pensioners, waiting in line to be paid out. Each customer took at least five minutes to process. After the initial chat, they got the wrong papers, the wrong card or the wrong day and were told to come back later.

The ones who did manage to produce the right details, then put their cards into the machine the wrong way up. Several put in the wrong pin number, meaning the transaction was cancelled and the entire process had to start again. Before they left the queue, there was another three minute gossip and they slowly moved away.

Why am I laughing? It won't be long before I am doing the same.
