The new guy strikes again. Yesterday, after lunch, I put my bread and cheese in the refrigerator like usual. During lunchtime today I was shown how I had accidentally switched off the refrigerator so that all the food in the freezer compartment had to be thrown away. Sigh.
Tobacco and alcohol laws and traditions are bit different here than in Iceland. Full case of beer here costs similar to six pack in Iceland. There is similar price difference in wine and strong drinks. But the weird thing is the cigarettes. In The Netherlands there are usually 19 cigarettes in a pack. Not 20 like in most countries. This is because cigarette packs with 20 cigarettes are taxed. So to circumvent this tax tobacco manufacturers decided to remove 1 (one) cigarette from the pack.
