Prompted by wednesday_10_00, I checked my mailbox for my test results. To prolong the suspense, I thought I'd give a brief description of the mailbox. Typical for Japanese apartments, it's a metal cage attached to a slot in the door to catch the mail. I'd never had one like this in America, so it took a bit of getting used to.
No need to brave outdoor temperatures to check mail.
The mail is deposited inside the apartment, so (theoretically) there's less chance of someone stealing it.
It's rare that anyone bothers to push the mail all the way inside, especially long items like bills or magazines, so the mail winds up jutting out the slot.
The slot is quite narrow, so anything much bigger than a normal sized envelope is not delivered. Instead, it must be fetched from the post office.
Okay, I think that's enough of a delay. The official results: I passed!
