The Meldezettel and Bureaucratic Banking Idiosyncracies

The meldezettel is a document of residency you must get within three days of arriving at your location. My classmates and I filled up the application form for the meldezettel differently (below left). As a result, we received a different wording under "Wohnsitzqualitat" on the meldezettel (right). I got "Nebenwohnsitz", or secondary residence. They got "Hauptwohnsitz", or principal residence.
