Only in Israel does the woman behind the counter at the post office believe it to be normal to ask to borrow something that you are about to mail off.
It was time to return my rented cell phone and charger, but before I could do so, the post woman realized that the charger could very well be a perfect fit for her cell phone. Unfortunately, she had misplaced her own charger the night before and had not had the time to go and buy another before starting work. Fortunately for her, I came along. She asked to take a look at my rented charger, proceeded to take her cell phone out, and fit the charger into the cell phone. Looking at her strangely she asked, "Do you mind, I'll just charge my cell phone fore 10 minutes, and trust me, I will then place the charger in the package and mail it off." I replied with a hesitant, "sure, but I'll be seated until it's sent off."
