I live on the ground floor, so whenever I receive a package, the courier always asks me to take packages for neighbours (sometimes it's because the neighbours are not at home, sometimes the courier just doesn't want to climb stairs...) I usually took the packages as I am mostly at home during the pandemic (also because I think if I upset the couriers, then they won't delivery my packages anymore and just leave them at a pickup station instead. Is this true?). But a few months ago, my doorbell broke. At first, I didn't think too much of it and continued to take packages whenever the courier asked. Most neighbours are very grateful of this; one guy even tried to tip me. But one Saturday afternoon, after returning from an outing, I found a note on the building door that asked me to ring their doorbell when I came home since I had their package. I was a bit annoyed but considering my doorbell was broken, I delivered the package to this neighbour as requested. A few days later, the same neighbour shows up at my door to retrieve his package. This time he was very angry, saying that it caused him great inconvenience last time since my doorbell was broken and he couldn't get into the building (I wasn't home anyway) and demanded that I don't take his package in the future. I said okay. He was rude but what he said also made sense as I didn't think about how my broken doorbell could affect neighbours retrieving their packages. A few days later, I was receiving a package for myself (I always put my phone number on the address so the courier can reach my door), as usual the courier asks me to take a package for my neighbours. This time, I said no because the doorbell was broken. But the courier insisted that the package was meant for someone within my building so that he could just knock on my door. Lacking further excuse, I took the package. By pure poetic justice, the courier lied to me and it was that angry neighbour's package, who lived in another building. It has been weeks now and he still hasn't picked up his package. What should I do with it? I don't want to be the sucker who delivers packages for this rude dude. But I also don't want to get into legal trouble by throwing away the package. It's an Amazon package, so no return address is visible. Now it's just taking up space in my hallway... Any ideas for what to do with this package? Also, how to say no to persistent (and possibly lazy) couriers? Thanks!
Radgostar posted a topic in Life in BerlinHi, I am not German and recently I bought the house in Heilligensee, my house is on the front row and two other houses need to past my land, I know by law I should allow them to past and I do not have block the, but there are some issue which need to know how to act with them. The old owner grow a big tree at the end of my land which now is protecting by government and when we requested the government for permit to cut down they told us no. I personally dose not have any issue with that tree and love it, but because we understood neighbour dose not like that tree because they claim it is too big and make dirt everywhere we agreed to make application to keep them happy since we like to have the nice relationship with our neighbours, story short government told us no. Now I saw few times this neighbour put his hand and cut branches which are still in my land but in this passage way and not block him or cause of any damage to his car and then throw it into my garden, or collect the death lift from this three and dump it into my garden. 1. Does he has right to touch my tree? if No. what should I do is there any law sentences which I can read and learn about the law in Berlin? 2. Dose he has right to drop/throw it back in to my garden? if No. what should I do is there any law sentences which I can read and learn about the law in Berlin? 3. Also I can see he put some white powder below my tree and when I did ask him he said this is poison for ants, but at close to this tree I grow strawberry and this can be harm for my health if I eat these strawberry :(, Overall I am not sure why he do these things without asking me, I do not have problem if ask me for help to clean or cut or anything and then we both knows what's going on rather than he just decide and act without my concern or permission. Many thanks for your input and help.
