4:00  Stand in lines to retrieve their packages. 

4:20 Get packages and pay VAT (taxes).

4:23 Put packages in car.

4:24 Parking Marshall demands 70 cents for the privilege of parking.

4:25  Digging through the purse turns up no money, it was all used to pay VAT.  Parking Marshall waits for 70 cents.

4:30  Try calling husband to bring 70 cents.  No connection.  Parking Marshall waits.

4:35  Phone a friend to bring 70 cents.

4:45 Friend pulls up in a van and hands you 70 cents a.k.a. he hands you "Freedom to leave the post office".
