So, I went to the Deutsche Post’s parcel pick-up office (a 45 minute walk from our apartment if one were walking) and waited in line for 20 minutes just to be told that the package which I had the pick-up slip for had most assuredly already been returned. We were on vacation for 2 weeks, and in that time we had recieved a package, which –after 7 days- was returned to the sender. „But we were on vacation! How could we pick it up?!?“ I said in shock-
„Hmmpf“ came the non-reply from the Deutsche Post Postal worker „well, it is there in the small print, we only keep packages for 7 days...“
So, does this mean that everyone who went out of town for 7 or more days during the Holidays got their packages returned to sender? And this is a POLICY? What is easier for the post: hanging onto the packages for 10 or even 14 days, or making TWICE the work for themselves by returning them??= OR are they banking on all the extra money people have to spend to RE-send all the stuff again after it has been returned?

Besides all this I wasted my entire Mittagspause (lunch break) just to find this out.

SO, if I were to write a letter to the Deutsche Post at the moment, it would begin:

"Dear Stupid annoying fucking Deutsche Post,
you will have to be much SMARTER and DYNAMIC if you want to survive, especially with new competition. This isn't the first time that wierd senseless shit has gone down-"

I had an incident where our name schild fell off our apartment door for an afternoon therefore the mail was not delivered that day, but rather returned.
