I am shipping a box of stuff back home, so I went to the Post Office (postkantoor) to pick up a good box. I waited for 20 minutes to buy the box. When I got to the counter, I asked the lady how much it would cost to send the box to Australia. She grudgingly looked it up in her book and gave me the price, which was less than half what FedEx quoted me. I told her this. She looked at me with disgust for my idiocy and said “Of course. We are not as good as FedEx”.
