Information overload on the streets of Mysore.

The sixth of the nine stage process of posting a parcel. 1) Go to post office, realise they don't have envelopes. 2) Fend off parcel makers outside the post office and find a place that will sell an envelope. 3) Go to try to buy stamps at counter 2 which has a sign above it saying 'Stamps'. 4) Get to front of queue and get sent to counter 7, for parcels. 5) Eventually get to the front of the queue at counter 7, only to get sent back to counter 2 because my parcel is small. 6) Get to the front of the queue at counter 2, have my parcel weighed, wait for 10 minutes as the officer there unsuccessfully looks for a 100 rupee stamp, get sent outside to the 'glue table' to close my package and apply the stamps. 8) sneakily ask a bored looking worker for a stapler as my faith in the glue is not what it could be. 9) Go back to counter 2 and ask the kind sir if he would be so kind as to take my package.
