Summary: There's a long wait, but it will be worth it.
Disclaimer: I don't own them
Ianto sighed leaning over the counter, signing the cheque before slipping it under the gap in the perspex window.
'Take a seat, sir. We'll process this, but it can take an hour or two.'
'That's fine,' he replied, forcing a small, courteous smile onto his face. 'Done this before.'
'Ah, yes, I see,' the clerk said, viewing the screen, his esteem for Ianto slowly declining the more he read.
He parked himself on the hard plastic chair, trying to get comfortable. With all the cheques he'd written, surely they could invest in better chairs. He could even get his name on one, like a members seat at the football. He'd certainly get use out of it.
The wait was long, as expected for an organisation that was understaffed and underfunded. He spent the time calculating in his head of how may days worth of decaf this should equate to, factoring in the charge, the hour, the weather, the backlog of work that wasn't getting done, the cost, and an imputed annoyance factor. Three days.
Finally though, Jack appeared.
'Thanks for springing me out. I swear I don't know how I lost my clothes. Public indecency? With a body this good?'
