  1. What's got you flummoxed today?

    This sounds really promising... landlady from hell ? Hope he turns out to be a professional rent boy doing loud stuff down in the dungeon.

  3. Why are you unhappy today?

    I would feel the same

  6. Uk Passport Validity

    Dembo, makes sense... in theory.   But free movement of people is not gonna apply if you are turdwurld. That be for Europeans. Or maybe I need to check Schengen.
  7. Uk Passport Validity

    No.
  8. The War in Ukraine

    Wow. That s quite an argument. But needs digesting. Indeed, Greek debt was transferred to other EU tax payers. But he complains Greek income was forcibly shrunk. Well yeah, they were expected to pay somehow. The Greek taxpayer was not gonna pay. The Greeks are notorious for not paying taxes. So it had to be another way.   
  9. Uk Passport Validity

    Yes.   If you leave France for more than five years you lose WA status. Which, being a French national is superfluous for me anyway. Unless and until they revoke my French nationality. Now why they would do that is a long story... But possible.    It is promising... 
  10. Uk Passport Validity

    Have a sneaky feeling this may be a loophole. Imprecise use of language. The person drafting that text did not take into account Turdwurlders travelling into Germany from another EU country.   How can your country of departure ...  or residence status there... have any bearing on German requirements for entry into Germany by 3rd worlders ? I fear a literal reading of the words is contradictory to what is actually meant. (The spirit) In short, they haven t thought it all through properly. Which is the usual defining characteristic of roolz.
  11. Uk Passport Validity

    I left France for UK two weeks ago. Leaving France I proffered my red UK passport. I did not proffer my French ID as this will not get me into UK. Border control asked for my French residence permit. Which I should no longer possess being bi-national. (Jobsworth failed to do his job when issuing French ID... I should have ceded residence permit upon receipt of ID. No, I did not offer up my residence permit... he did not ask for it, but should have done according to the blurb.)   Upon re-entry, I only showed my passport. So could be a mere visitor. Wondering if they will have me down in their computer as having returned or not.

    Yes. Drittstaaten = Thurd Wurld Cuntries. Which UK now is. Excuse my Unglish.  
  14. Uk Passport Validity

    The German Embassy advice (quick and verbal?) contradicts the information on the bundespolizei website. Last update unknown... but not reassuring. The Bundespolizei are the uniforms letting you over the border. So for me their information would trump that of the embassy...   Since when was the residence permit a travel document ? They seem to still be making up the roolz as they go along. Or there is a lack of understanding.   I fail to see how a Spanish residence permit will be of any interest to German border control. I think she is likely to come a cropper.
  15. I would go in person to your nearest police station. File a complaint. You will at least have a case no. Which will come in handy for any insurance claim you may have to make.  I did that and they sent a detective round a couple of days later. You don t know where this could lead. It is perhaps not over. You ll only know afterwards. I would not be tempted to trivialise it.

    Don t play the game.  Greed. Middle men. Hangeronners. Don t feed them.   YouTube 
  18. The War in Ukraine

      This is universally applicable to each and every country of the EU. No one joined Europe for altruistic reasons.
  19. Random pointless comments

    What if it was a deviation tactic and the light has been shining on the wrong person ? And what if it is actually possible to demonstrate that this is indeed the case ? Worried ?
  20. He is the owner. Could also be a teenage prank, nutty neighbour, bored individual. Not everyone is very bright.   I would break the lock or at the very least have a go at mail retrieval with tongs from the front. Too curious to let it ride. Also would not stand for loss of mail delivery.  Action !!! It s your mail box...

  22. Cannot answer OPs query. However, I had a similar weird expérience in Munich years back. Lived in a semi detached house but we had two mail boxes as the original one was too small for packages. Someone rocked up, removed the lock, left the door swinging on its hinges, came back next day and installed their own lock.  I reported it to the police who came round and declared it to be a professional change of lock. We never found out who did it. Landlord did not do it. AFAIK no mail was ever left there. The name plate was not changed. We moved out shortly afterwards so did not pursue it. One of life s mysteries.
