Expecting new shoes from ebay
Royal mail delivery slip through the door.
go to Bethnal Green sorting office in old hole-y shoes
start queueing in the freezing (especially on my feet) cold
Realize it's going to be a long wait so I get out 'War and Peace' which I'm reading at the moment.
Proceed to queue for 37 minutes for my package.
Finally get to counter - hand slip over
man comes back with parcel from Amazon for me
with an extra copy of War and Peace which they've sent me by mistake.
no new shoes
