Fighting with bureaucracy…

This is my first real spare time entry, so what might be the reason for this? Currently I am fighting with the local post office and it seems like I lost before I really started.

Several weeks ago I ordered a package with cloths and CDs from Canada. Immediately I received a mail, that it will take two packages to fullfill my order (yay was a lot of stuff). It took about eight weeks until I received the first package. Afterwards I was supposed to get another one from a different origin. Now, four weeks later it did receive none of them. So there are only three possibilities left.

  1. Both never sended these to me. Very unusual, especially as I received the first package.
  2. The post company in Germany lost both packages. As until now I was really pleased with our postal system, I cannot imagine this…
  3. A strange guy here in my house captures the packages and listens now to great music and wears my shirts while he is installing software I bought.

Possibility  1 and 2 seem pretty implausible. But for all of these cases I assumed walking to the local office might help. Attending there during their opening hours (which are very similar to my usual working hours), did not help. In germany it is not possible to locate the position of a package being sent to you as a receiver. Only the sender has the right to ask for it. To get rid of theory 3 I kindly asked the person, wether it is possible not to receive a package and just get a letter instead, that I should pick it up. She only stated that this is not possible in Germany. All I can do is buy/rent a post-office box, but “usually packages are to big for this and so we send them out to your appartment anyway”. So this also does not work. Frustrated I asked whether I have any choice, or wether my neighbour is able to catch up all following packages, she only agreed that I might be in a complicated situation.

Haha, complicated situation…

In the end I am sitting here in a very angry mood imagining that guy having fun with my packages, using the stuff or selling it on ebay. Damn….

    if you bought using a credit card, contact the vendor, tell them that you have not received part of the package, and refuse to pay. That will force them to track the package, and may shed some light.
