Junkmail & Broken Mailbox

I get so much junkmail in my mailbox its ridicolous. Where does one get those stickers from to say 'Bitte Keine Werbung'. Went Post Office but didnt have any.

Also my mailbox was rusty and finally the lock inside broke, who do I contact to get it repaired? The super of the building? The estate agency or the Post Office?

Appreciate any help here!

Do you have a Magic Marker? Do you have shiny yellow paper? Do you have Scotch tape?

Ask the caretaker. But please feel free to complain to the Post Office, too.

They do like entertaining diversions from their humdrum lives of licking stamps and tutting at foreigners.

I bought mine at McPaperland, there is also an office supply and paper shop in some Tschibos that have them too.

You get those stickers in bookstores. Or copy/enlarge and print them from here:







Since Post offices have nothing to do with mailboxes in this country, ask your caretaker to fix it.

Well, I like all that junkmail. How else am I going to find out what is on sale where? I made the flyer delivery guy in my neighbourhood smile when I took my "no junk mail" sticker off. You see, he doesn't have to deliver to any of my neighbours, but delivering to my house means he has to walk out of his way and that takes him longer and he gets paid by time...so he is happy. He doesn't like dogs though. He is afraid of them.

Mailbox lock repair is taken care of the management but you will have to pay as it falls under small repair. It's not that difficult to change yourself (assuming you can still get the door open as the lock has to be replaced from the inside of the mailbox door).
