Warning to all tourists visiting Luxembourg and its superb post office in the city centre. The yellow box with a large post office logo hanging on the main entrance hall wall is NOT a mailbox: it's a dustbin! OKOK, I know the bin is bigger than a usual mailbox, and the hole is larger and wider than for a normal mailbox ( it actually makes it easier to put in a stack of large envelopes ), so one can wonder who would be the stupid idiot mistaking it and throw his letters into it...errr...have a nice weekend.
P.S. I am lucky to have noticed my mistake immediately and managed to get the letters out. People passing by were a bit surprised.
P.S.2: If you're nice I'll tell you on Monday how today I put the 8.03am train Bettembourg-Luxembourg to laugh at an idiot on the floor ! Alex Classics...
After 35 years of carrying the mail through all kinds of weather to the same neighborhood, the mailman was going to retire. When he arrived at the first house on his route, he was met at the door by a strikingly beautiful woman in a revealing negligee. She took him by the hand, gently led him through the door and up the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had ever experienced!
When he had enough, they went downstairs where she fixed him a giant breakfast; eggs, potatoes, ham, sausage, blueberry waffles, and fresh-squeezed orange juice.
When he was truly satisfied she poured him a cup of steaming coffee. As she was pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from under the cup's bottom edge.
'All of this was just too wonderful for words', he said; 'But what's the dollar for'?
'Well', she said, 'last night, I told my husband that today would
be your last day, and that we should do something special for you. I asked
him what to give you, and he said; 'Screw him. Give him a dollar'. 'The
breakfast was my idea!!'
