Open Letter to the Dutch Post Office suggestion box

Dear Dutch Post Office,

Recently, your mailman tried to deliver mail to my house that required an ID. I was at work, so he left a note to go to the local post office (only open during working hours) to pick up the envelope.

You've pulled this stunt before, and frankly, I've had it.

I have a full-time job, so I'm not at home when the mailman comes. It follows logically that I also don't have time to pick up mail during working hours.

That mail you make me pick up is for me, not for my house. So you should deliver it to me, not to my house. I can tell you where I am during working hours, and you can send it there. It's not like your mailmen don't visit my office anyway. They can easily take my mail there as well.

Many millions of citizens will join me in thanking me for not having to work late.
