Standard
Me:
(Fumbling while trying to seal two large envelopes to be mailed.)
Hi. Uhm, these are going to New Zealand.

Post Office Clerk:
(Shocked.)
Really???

Me:
(Looking at him to see if he’s joking. He’s not.)
Yeah. You know, like Lord of the Rings.”
(Wide grin.)

POC:
(Silence.)

Me:
Ohh-kay.
(Pause.)
Anyway, so yeah, I need these to go to New Zealand.

New Zealand is still on planet Earth, right? Juuuust checking.
