One of the staff of the city hall of our town seemed to be surprised to see the wads of money we brought. I told her that we didn't think it was enough to help many people,but we wanted to do something for the stricken area.

Then she told me that she would ask her general manager if she could accept it on the spot.
Unfortunately her boss was not there at the time,but I left the donation at the city hall's window,as I did not have much time to wait for the manager.

Late in the evening I received a telephone call from them.
I thought national public servants sometimes lack flexibility, but at the same time they have to express appreciation even though the money is not for them.
I feel sorry for people who must work formally in offices.
