  1. Am I missing something?

    Have you considered a will yet? Maybe she is worried the daughter gets the bed and she ends up on the floor?  I'm also looking forward to this day and the complications we never saw coming when we were young.   
  2. I normally pay DHL $30 from China express for shipping documents 7 days or less, they cannot guarantee next day and yes I have sat on a plane 7 hours later for a time sensitive part from China $1500 Euros when I all ready had a visa passport etc set up.  You have no chance these days unless flying business, I have even considered a bike ride. 
  3. Road construction next door

    You could try various council members for what their opinion is on the new road. Our city has a bypass planed and the Green party are against it as the original planing was around 20 years ago and the traffic pattern has changed. Its taken 20 years to get this far still not a lot happening, 
  4. Mailing medicine within EU countries.

    Zoll are not that silly to have a mailbox on the customs side of the airport. He will also have to quarantine for 14 days before visiting the post office. 
  5. question about tire wheel sizes

    Have a look inside the fuel filter cap see if the tyre pressures are listed. Most problems are with alloy wheels.  
  6. Quitting without giving the two weeks notice

    6 months probation. The chemistry may be they are being nice trying not to fire you. Perhaps just say your so stressed by the company and cannot come in for the next two months but willing to walk away rather than call a lawyer. .
  7. Non-compete compliance verification

    I was reading the " Photography law while not photographing" thread on Toytown and thinking the same as Lenny. I wonder how many people she has been making this statement too?  
  8. Non-compete compliance verification

    Google "eu employee non compete agreement"  https://www(dot)nortonrosefulbright.com/en/knowledge/publications/9807eea3/a-comparison-of-laws-in-selected-eu-jurisdictions-relating-to-post-contractual-non-competition-agreements-between-employers-and-employees  Just part of the page regarding Germany. Who would want to leave the EU? Compensation A post contractual non-compete covenant is only valid and enforceable if a compensation payment is promised already at the point in time when the parties agree on the covenant; whereas such promised compensation must be at least 50% of the most recent contractual remuneration received by the employee for each year of the prohibition. “Contractual remuneration” in this regard includes all fixed and variable payments and also any benefits in kind (e.g. a company car).
  9. My car has been off the road de registered  in my garage doing some welding repairs to the body work. I got 5 day plates and insurance took it for the Tüv it failed on a list of things and the emissions test. The emissions may be due to the fact it had been sitting 3 years and not used? It will take more than the 3 days remaining to fix and I can resubmit till 19.10 7) Your vehicle has been subjected to considerable Defects detected.  8)A re-shipment within 2 months (until 19.10.2020) is required.  The emissions I would like to drain the tank change the fuel and oil blast with injector cleaner and see what happens. Other problems CV steering boots cracked, Yellow faded from the side indicators and horn never used I stop if in danger. one ball joint. parking brake sticking a bit. ( I have already ordered new fluid and plan some  work on the brakes they felt quite bad driving there but they passed I almost turned around at the door. Beware of the test. ) Can I register the car on this 2 month period work needed done Tüv or do I need 5 day plates insurance every time I need it checked or work done?  I expect bad news but just asking have no plans to drive except for emissions testing blowing out the cobwebs at least they where happy with my welding. 
  10. First question a German lawyer will ask you is do you have legal insurance? The lesson here is don't ask random non lawyer at the insurance company for legal advice if you have cover, let your lawyer deal with it.  Let him deal with the fact you where told illegally your not covered as well. Perhaps you need legal insurance for your legal insurance. I'm not a lawyer. My daughter is if anyone wants to play. 
  11. Another driving licence one

    On checking it turns out my UK licence was indeed canceled. Stating it was replaced, issued by another authority   
  12. Another driving licence one

    If you still have the details you can use your NHS number to check online if your UK licence is still valid for a hire car? Although Germany returns the licence does it actually get cancelled? That requires a Bobsworth to work and no one is paying. www(dot)viewdrivingrecord.service.gov.uk/driving-record/licence-number
