In Sweden, packages are not sent to your home directly. They are sent to the local post office first. After that, you receive a notification slip about your package’s arrival. Then you can go to the post office and pick it up. When you go there, you must take the slip and your identification card. On Aug. 22, Marie Palmgren received a notification slip from the post office. Her British friend had sent a gift under her dog’s name, Chaya. Now Marie had to find something that could prove Chaya’s identity. So she took Chaya’s registration documents to the post office. But the staff also asked for Chaya’s signature. Because Chaya couldn’t hold a pen, the staff used an ink pad to take the dog’s paw print. Finally, they went home with Chaya’s gift. “At first, I was really frustrated. But on my way home, I couldn’t stop laughing, because the staff was too serious,” Marie said.
