Und noch ein erstes Foto vom Unpacking:Mr. Gimmick hat geschrieben:So, a nightmarish day ends! This morning I said that I would (not seriously!) run amok, if the German post did not manage to send the custommail (within 3! days) today. So, as my wife knows how excited I was to get all this crazy Stuff, she proposed to work today for only 6h, drive home and if the mail arrived to get to Customoffice and get the package.
So far, so good!
Arriving at home the first step was made and the mail was there. There I thought, the Rest would be easy. But within the next 1h my amok-thoughts could have gone true... almost... but later more.
We both arrived at the Office half an hour before closing... Every person who knows German officials also knows how sacred the correct finishing time for them is (I am also an official, so I know I'm talking about! ). So it would be tight, if problems occured.
The last 2 times I had the same (female) Officer and she was kind and appreciative, but this time she got from the first second unkind, almost aggressive. I do not know the reason, but I still think about an official complaint (now I can really understand the "normal" Citizen, who has to do with officials!).
Normaly I am not an uncomplicated person (unfortunately I know it), but as I urgently want this stuff, I managed to strongly pull myself together - my Wife told me afterwards, that she was very surprised, that I did not explode!
Before I went to the customs I made a chart, what was already delivered, how many value is still left for this Wave and Wave 2, divided it through 2, to estimate the value for Wave 1.5. As I could not show the custom-documents of the first delivery (I picked up the coresets and the red minis at SPIEL2014 in Essen), she always stated, that I should explain my calculations, but either she could not oder wasn't willing to understand, she asked and asked and asked for explanation (but when I started explaining she alsmost always didn't let me finish my explanation and she interrupted - aggressivly - to claim an better explanation). As I told her, that all the stretchgoals (she not even knows what SG were, so I had to explain it too) don't have real value (for tax-purpose) I think she thought, I'd kid her.
As we discussed - or better: she offended and I defended, time passed by and closing got nearer and nearer. If the finishing time would be exceeded pay desk would be closed and I would have to come back on another day (and leave WITHOUT my parcel!)!
She kept asking about the value of the delivery and I tried to explain my calculation.
Finally after half an hour she "generously" started to google the prices for Caverns, Town Expansion, Doorways... At the end she calculated nearly the same tax like I did in my calculation! But my blood pressure felt like crashing the scala....
Now I only have to unpack the stuff from the parcel and have to calm down for the rest of the evening. Tomorrow I will take a look, how great all the things are...
Am I the only person in germany who got his stuff?
Trotzdem wünsche ich dir viel Spaß. Mal sehen, wann Wave 2.0 endgültig aufschlägt.
So und 125$ + Einfuhr-USt habe ich nicht allein bezahlt, denn meine Gruppe ist genauso bekloppt wie ich und wir haben uns die Versandkosten komplett geteilt. Insofern hat mich das Ganze etwa 30 EUR gekostet und DAS war es mir auf jedenfall wert!
Klugscheissermodus aus. :p
