The colorful wolf

Gaah the post office stresses me out!

Filed under: Uncategorized — randy @ 10:14

How am I supposed to remember exactly what I put in those boxes two months ago?!?! Besides, the field on the form is too small to write everything down anyway.. so don`t tell me to be specific! And why must the value of each item be larger than zero yen? And why must it be the price of the item when I bought it? What if it was a gift and you don`t know the value? And finally, why does the annoying post office lady keep on pressuring me to send by EMS which is way more expensive? I already told her that I won`t go back for at least 3 weeks, so what`s the point of my stuff arriving home in 1 week?!

Argh! Screw you, `civilization`! I`m going back to my tent.

  1. Maybe you misunderstand the lady in the post office. When I sent away my stuffs, they told me the box maybe destroy if we use furry and they confirmed me if that’s ok. They also told me to buy insurance if I want. They also told me to put price in case of the stuffs are destroy. They also recommended me to use EMS because that’s the most safest way.Actually she just want to help you and give you the best service as she can. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s better to know information in advance than afterwards.
    I love the civilization of Japan!!!

  2. How come when I sent back the stuff they didn’t ask anything, they only charged me 10,000 yen for the box. It came back fine.

  3. Dunno, but mine were 2 very big heavy boxes, so I’m not too surprised about the price actually.

  4. If you put down zero value for all your stuff you won’t get any money back if the box “gets lost”.
    Also, when you send stuff into EU if it’s not a gift or exceeds a certain (money-)value, there are taxes. Basically that’s a safety measure so people don’t buy stuff for cheap dollars in US and bypass 30% value added tax and stuff. But then German law says that if you have lived abroad for more than a year all the stuff you bring back is considered your daily life stuff and not a shopping spree and you don’t have to pay any taxes.

    Fingers crossed for your stuff to pass Somalia.
