the phone book, sire

December 19th, 2006

Funniest thing. The phone company dropped off a note at our door, saying they tried to deliver the phone book, but noone was home to receive it. Let me explain. The Dutch have said No To Drugs Mailboxes. They only have that medieval crack in the door, so the phone book is too big to fit through it. So when it is the time of the year to deliver the phone book, they have to drive around door-to-door.

Anyway, I was so relieved to learn I can pick it up at the post office (just imagine the humongous stack of phone books they must have right now). *shrugs* I didn't even know we had a phone book in the house, never seen one.

    Hated the medieval crack when I still had my paper round. Only some people have the proper boxes (we don't ourselves either, shameful I know).

    Our phonebook fits through the crack though, but our town is tiny
