I got a call from an ups driver this morning, wanting to deliver a box of beer at my apartment. I explained that I was at work, and and that there are no neighbors around to sign for it. I could have had it redirected and delivered at my office, but that would mean a Monday delivery, when I am off.
No problem, said the driver. There is a company a few streets from where you live. They are open until four. Why don’t I drop it off there, and you can pick it up on you way home?
The beers come from Biershop Bayern, sent on Tuesday.
I have yet to find out what the taxman has to say about the transaction.
I even learnt some German – I did not know that there is an Umlaut in the plural of bock.
