A CONVERSATION AT THE POST OFFICE

This concerns a conversation at the post office between a postal clerk and a tourist (Ashok) about buying various types of postage items such as, stamps, inland a.mp3ail letters, aerograms, etc.

A serious task such as mailing registered letters or packages is a test of endurance and patience. But, by and large, things get done and the mail keeps moving.


Ashok: (Please) give me stamps for ten rupees.

Clerk: What denomination, sir?

Ashok: Three for the United States, two for Delhi, and could you also give me four aerograms?

Clerk: Here are the stamps and the aerograms, and here is (your) change.

Ashok: Thank you. This letter is to be sent by registered mail.

Clerk: A.mp3ail, or (would you prefer) surface mail?

Ashok: No, a.mp3ail.

Clerk: All right, give it to me. I shall weigh it.

Ashok: Take it, please.

Clerk: It will cost four rupees.

Ashok: All right, here is a five rupee bill.

Clerk: Here is your receipt, and here is the change.

Ashok: All right, thank you.
