Well, it seems a little unrealistic to me since there are no post office clerks in Turkey asking whether I'm doing fine or not. But, anyway, it is a good conversation eventhough I couldn't understand a word at first listening. I thought he was speaking in a different language when saying "A bit busy in here isn't it?"  I wonder if British people speak like this all the time in their daily lives...
