Mr. G gets a little, very little pension from Italy about 300 $ per year (!!).
For that once a year he has to prove that he is still alive so that his dear wife doesn't get this generous pension after his dead.
He got a letter from Germany, from the "Deutsche Post"
Inside was a form in Italian on one side and French on the other, to be filled in by the Belgian authorities that Mr. G. is still alive. So yesterday morning he presented himself in full glory to prove that he is still part of Waterloo's citizens. The employee checked the form, could only state that he is not dead put a stamp on and a signature.
Then he had to send this form to the UK which fortunately is still member of the European Union.
Hopefully the office there understands French or Italian.
Now I try to understand the logic of the European Union ! Why sending an Italian form from Germany and then to the UK, for an Italian pension ??
