On long lunch breaks

On long lunch breaks

Friday lunchtime, and my esteemed colleague approaches me with a question:

"I'm popping across to the Post Office. Do you want me to get you anything?"

After a moment's thought, I thank him for his kind offer and say:

"Yes. Yes I do. Could you hand this piece of paper to the cashier?"

Give me all the money, and no funny businessIt is now Monday, and he has not returned. That's what I call a long lunch break.
