Percy is given three jobs; collecting Lady Hatt's luggage and taking it to the airport, taking the children to a party, and delivering the mail. Percy does the most exciting job first - he takes the children to their party. After chatting for too long, Percy is late for delivering the luggage and the mail. He asks Edward to take the mail and then he hastily takes Lady Hatt's luggage to the airport where he arrives just before the Fat Controller. As Jeremy soars into the sky with Lady Hatt, Percy feels relieved. He now knows to never leave things until the last minute.
