German letterboxes and Policemen (not only in Germany)

Finding a post office in Berlin is not easy. Having finally found one, I bought my stamps, and then spent two days till I found a letter-box to mail my letters. When I finally found a letterbox, it came in a cluster of three.

Perhaps, dear Deutsche Post, it would be a good idea to spread the letterboxes around. They do not need to keep each other company. Nor – for that – should policemen. They are meant to walk the streets, see and be seen. They may consider chatting to their colleagues less boring than walking on their own, but less boring is not what their job is about. 


  1. Police in Berlin:

    Have you ever tried to find a police station in Berlin?

  2. Perhaps mail boxes are as afraid as policemen of being alone in the dark - quite sensible I guess.
