Took a walk to our local Royal Mail sorting office this lunchtime. I had a feeling that one of their cards had been delivered to me last week and I’d inadvertently thrown it away so I thought I’d go and ask if they had a parcel for me as I was expecting something.
Whilst queuing a lady in front of me was unable to collect a parcel for her son as she had no proof of address on her. A quick rummage through my bag revealed that I didn’t either. No chance of retrieving my parcel today then. Oh well, I was there so could at least ascertain if the parcel was there.
When I got to the counter I explained the situation and asked if they had my parcel. I apologised for having no proof of address on me. The guy took my name and address and within a couple of minutes returned with my parcel and handed it over, no questions asked.
So I’m wondering … Are blind people considered unable to commit a crime? I could have been stealing property or even someone’s identity and he did nothing to prevent me!
Just as well really that it was simply a bit of harmless EBay shopping!
