So, now I get back...see the notice...but, of course it is too late to pick it up at the Post and it has now been sent back to the Migrationsamt. No big deal, right? I should just be able to pick it up there in person or maybe they could try to send it out to me again. Ooooohhhh nnnnnooooo! That would be way too easy. Now it gets sent to our Kriesburo, where they then contact me and then I can pick it up in person. I feel like this is about 12 steps too many. This is for sure going to take weeks and the only thing I need this new permit for is to de-register. How ironic is that?
How funny would that be to pick it up and at the same time ask them to punch it and process my de-registration?! My hope is that they don't need the new permit to process the paperwork, but I am probably wrong as my track record has shown. May the force be with me.
