He was gone a long time. When he came back, doing the theatrical teenage sighing and stomping around thing that he has taken to doing EVERY time you ask him to help you, he said it had taken him AGES to get the stamp on the envelope.
Because he is so used to self-adhesive stamps, he had sat for an ice-age trying to pick, pick, pick off a non-existent backing sheet to stick the stamp on the envelope. The man behind the counter took pity on his frowning little countenance and explained that the stamp needed to be LICKED.
