  1. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Change banks. There are many.
  2. Glass shower door smashed - who should fix it?

    I would report it to the landlord saying it simply fell out. No need to mention that is was loose before. As a landlord, I would be grateful that nobody was injured as a result and happily replace it or remove it altogether and tell you to get a shower curtain.
  3. Why are you happy today?

    I'm in Seattle and it has been extremely hot since I got here. I got up this morning and it is pleasantly cool and will only be in the 70's for the next 5 days!   ....little things indeed....
  4. Without a diagnosis, it would be pretty difficult to check out the right spare part price. We just spent € 300 to have our 13 yr. old Waschtrockner repaired. Beat spending € 1200-1400 on a replacement.  
  5. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Legally speaking, people who are abused are called victims, I believe.   People who are living "in spite of" something are survivors.   That's just how I see it.
  6. I have read T & C for air travel and car rental where it say the credit card owner must present the card also. Not very often, though, and not for quite a while.
  7. Odd news

    I'm in the U. S. right now and goat yoga is all the rage.
  8.   It would involve me trusting you.   There, fixed it for ya.   That wasn't helpful. Seriously, have you tried any of the dot com (American) travel sites?,,, etc.?
  9.   Then that could give a false positive on a TB test. You probably never had TB.   When I came to Germany, I was required to have a TB test and an AIDS test. They didn't do the TB test at the health department because I told them that I had been vaccinated before for travel. They said that could create a false positive. The did, however, xray my lungs.
  10. Germans getting married in Las Vegas

      Sounds like they made a big mistake by not telling you. Sorry for your troubles.
  11. Don't German prison sentences seem light?

    Here is the pre-release center in my hometown.   As for what they are called, I think it depends on the state laws and terms.
  12. Don't German prison sentences seem light?

      They do this is some places in the U.S. In South Carolina they have "pre-release centers" in order to get acclimated back into society.   I wonder if the shorter sentences in Germany create higher or lower recidivism rates.
  13. This definition of cuck doesn't look sexual at all.   (Until you hover over the word itself) 
  14. What's got you flummoxed today?

      ....and I swore I'd never have a cell phone.
