Move to England, same result. One of the main reasons ive avoided Scandanavian countries is the exchange rate is depressing.


So you can imagine my delight when I break a wallet when I change 120£ into 650zl.

Knowledge and Perception is BORING. I've got a seminar at 1.15 tomorrow and I've done none of the reading or work for it. :/

The brother has reappeared from whatever pit he's been in for the last two days. Cue music again.

I think the notice I put up at work says it all;

"Please be advised that I am currently trying to do 9 things at the same time.

If you are the person who asks me to do a 10th then there is a good chance I will set you on fire"

Half the time they'll get a contractor to deliver it, who won't know where they're going, get lost, say the person was out and send the parcel back. Or they'll say they put a card through, and hold on the parcel for a week, despite calls for them to deliver it, then send it back. Or try to deliver, then "attempt redelivery", saying they left a card (they don't), do this three times, then CHARGE us to send it back undelivered. It's a PITA.

Royal Mail also have a very arcane system, where one sorting/collection office will service a wide area. Because the Post Office is technically a different company (it's weird), they will rarely go to the nearest post office to you, they'll go to the area sorting office. City Link I've only ever used for premium services because they are so much more expensive than DHL, but if you can get the sender (who is paying them and has a lot more clout than the mere receiver) to phone them up they can quite often be pretty good about getting it out for you the next day, very early in the morning.


The thing with City Link is they'll 'knock' at your door, give you about 5 seconds and then leave one of those cards saying "your parcel is at this sorting office in an industrial estate fucking miles away, and please leave x number of hours/days before coming to collect". Nearest one to Farnborough is in Basingstoke, nearest one to where I lived in Leeds was the total opposite side of the city so I had to get my mate to drive me and we basically killed a whole evening finding the place. Another time they woke me up at some stupid early hour, rummaged through their huge van and apologised saying they'd have to come back the next day. Cue them coming back the next day, stupidly early, and what was it? It was the invoice for an earlier delivery :ugh:

I feel like a claustrophobic heroin addict stuck in a lift.
