Two database views of reality

The screenshots below are two views of the same parcel being sent from Munich, Germany to Корець, Ukraine. Both are based on the same data entered, they're just different database lookups.

This is what I think of whenever I see a database queries or data exchange performed by someone else's code. I know most are better, but this is what I think of.

The recipient told us the parcel arrived in time for Christmas (January 7).
