"Don't do that newfangled stuff"

In Nuremberg, a Jodel user despaired of the digitization of German authorities.

His application was simply not processed because he submitted it online.

Nuremberg - It's the year 2022. But these are not the adventures of the Starship Enterprise.

If you look at the progressiveness of some Nuremberg authorities, we are closer to the steam engine than to a spaceship.

This was recently proven again by a post from a desperate citizen who had hoped that his request would be processed online.

Public authority employee does not process online applications and refers to a colleague

Going to an authority in Germany almost 1000 years later is still like going to Canossa.

You really don't want to, but you have to.

How nice it would be if you could save yourself the unpleasant trip and take care of your concerns digitally.

A Jodel user from Oberasbach (district of Fürth) had hoped to get an excerpt from the birth register in Nuremberg online.

But it was not like that.

He promptly informed the yodelling community about this.

“A great achievement by the city of Nuremberg.

Requested an extract from the birth register online.

2 weeks later I checked why nothing is coming.”

Digital only works when the colleague is back.

This is how the user's contribution begins.

So far, so normal.

Two weeks processing time is almost de rigueur in public authorities.

He was getting impatient though, hence the question.

And the response from the birth registry clerk stunned him with a vengeance.

"Oh, you did that online?

Well, nobody else does that, I didn't even look into it.

I don't do that newfangled stuff either, so you have to wait until my colleague comes back.” Whether that was actually the employee's statement cannot be confirmed.

However, if it is true, this again proves a cliché that has not only existed about German authorities since yesterday: Digitization is a foreign word.

Jodel users are amused by the statement made by a Nuremberg official

In any case, the readers of the yodel post had a lot of fun with the mills that the user from Oberasbach was fighting.

One wrote, "We're all new to the internet." Another even divulged office details.

"I used to work for a city council.

Communication would not have been possible without letters or a fax machine.

Internal authorities were also generally communicated via circulation folder instead of e-mail.” Many other users advised the applicant to contact their superior.

Others, however, gave him little hope that such a complaint would succeed.

It is not known whether the Jodel user now has his excerpt from the birth register.

In the meantime, however, three weeks have passed and maybe the colleague is back.

Jodel users only recently discussed whether the Franconian metropolis was “roughly ugly and antisocial” or not.
