Les wishes to buy a 25 pence postal order to go with his pools coupon. An easy enough task you might think. But at the Post Office he encounters problem after problem - firstly, he is mistaken for a robber, the cashiers run out of postal orders, he keeps losing his place in the queue, a gay man ( yes, its Roy again! ) gets fresh with him, and finally, when he gets what he wants, posts the coupon to the wrong pools company.
Easily the weakest of the 'Dawsons Weekly' series, the one-joke script wastes the talents of not only Les and Roy but but also Avril Angers and Patsy Rowlands. I recall Dave Allen once doing a monologue on his early '90's I.T.V. series on the subject of Post Offices, and it was a heck of a lot funnier than this.
Worth keeping to show to future generations what Post Offices were actually like.
Funniest moment - Les, trying to get back into the queue, explains to a disgruntled man that he was behind Roy before, and a cashier yells: "Do you two poofs want serving or not?".
