A minicab driver who received a telegram in 1961 requesting carriage to Croydon airport to catch a BOAC flight to Paris, has sent a runner to the customer's house to say he'll be there in 5 minutes after being delayed by roadworks and a surprising motorway appearing in the path of his usual route.

Surreally funny, could be expanded, I'd say.
Too late to edit, but I came up with this second paragraph:
Minicab driver, Alf Jenkins, dismissed claims that he'd left the car for a significant part of the past 52 years; "I may have parked up and popped out to get married, raise a family and run a newsagents, but I can't have been more than a couple of minutes." Mr Jenkins conceded that the customer was unlikely to catch their plane, particularly as Croydon is south of the river.
