Note Of Discord

Time To Face The Music

The celebrated German poet Friedrich Schiller, dead for more than 200 years, has been sent reminders that he should pay his TV and radio licence fee. The German fee collection agency, GEZ, mistakenly sent letters to "Mr Friedrich Schiller" - which arrived at a primary school bearing his name.

FOOTNOTE: Fee for all.

The GEZ is still resentful about the play Schiller dedicated to them, "The Robbers" ("Die Räuber"). ;-)

I've noticed that the Post Office often gets it wrong, no matter what country they're located...
