  1. What's got you flummoxed today?

      I was one of them, albeit not in Munich.   Surely it's good these 'nerdy young obese people' are out getting exercise even if it is chasing Pokemon?
  2. I was in a similar situation a few years ago.    I wanted to keep my apartment and maintain my health insurance status so I did not abmelden and went onto an Anwartsschaft with TK. It was all very easy.  Personally I chose this route as I wanted to make sure I could reenter the public health system and that way there were no discrepancies.  I wanted things to be as smooth as possible when I returned.   if you don’t deregister, you have to keep paying health insurance. 
  3. What made you smile today?

    I'll take 2 please!
  4. What's got you flummoxed today?

    My payments usually go to the hotel directly.   I had a problem with this recently where I'd booked and paid for a hotel on booking.com, but the payment was processed by the hotel.  Upon arrival, the hotel had cancelled my booking, claiming there was a problem with my card, which there wasn't, which could be proven by the fact they had taken the money 2 months earlier.  There was an event on that day and they just wanted to up the price for more cash.   After over 6 hours on the phone to Booking.com, they got me another hotel at 5x the cost (it was now the day of the event an everything was sold out) and the original hotel had to pay the difference.  So the advantage of using Booking is that when the shit hits the fan, they will at least bail you out, even if it takes all day.
  5. Why are you unhappy today?

    I just wanted to share her happy little face.
  6. Why are you unhappy today?

    I'll let you know the food brand when I get home - I tried several but the vet recommended one (I think it was Royal Canin) was the only one that helped.  Kattovit and other store-bought ones didn't go down well in my house. I second what Lisa said about subcutaneous fluids - it helped her a lot and she always came home from one of those sessions with an appetite which was great.   Ideally it's all a low-protein diet but give them whatever they will eat. Mine ate roast chicken from the deli, because I would give that cat whatever she damn well wanted at that point.   I would once again recommend SUC, it really did help with appetite. You can buy the three parts on amazon (Solidago, Ubichinon, Coenzyme), mix them and squirt it into the cat's mouth: half a syringe at a time, one full syringe per week.  I was sceptical but it really did make a lot of difference for my fluffball.   My cat simply refused to die. I took her a couple of times as she appeared to be in such a state but she would look at me and outright refuse, and the vet always found 'one more thing' to try and it always helped.  I was going to let her make the decision, and while all she wanted to do was sit with me in the sun, she purred like mad and I couldn't give up on her.  In the end she had a stroke and her little body gave out.   It's a year today since I lost her and I miss her terribly.
  7. Why are you unhappy today?

    My cat survived another 2 years after diagnosis thanks to an excellent vet.  Let me know if you want recommendations for food etc.  I was recommended SUC too and it helped with the appetite loss a lot.

    This should be in the flummoxed thread Wulfrun! :p
  9. A Nachzahlung and waiting for utility bills are not relevant in the OPs case, as it was paid as a Pauschalmiete and not as a Warmmiete. Use isn't compared in this instance.   The Mieterverein is your friend
  10. Why are you unhappy today?

    Decided that as everything is paid for, i was going to go on the trip regardless, also because it's cheaper to fly from there back for the funeral than from Germany. Also because my mental health is so poor that it is really necessary right now. A friend of mine was to be looking after my cats.  Now her flight has been cancelled and she won't get in until Sunday night so now I can't go anyway. And I got a flight back from there to th funeral so I have no idea how I'm going to make it there at all.    Oh and didn't get a temp job I applied for as I'm overqualified. It was only for a couple of months - surely they would benefit from that, given I applied and jumped through their hoops and am clearly capable of doing the job.   Would like to catch a break round about now please.
  11. What if ....? Question about German Citizenship

    Your wife has citizenship. The fact she has a German passport means she is a German citizen. And yes that will help you to live in Germany postBrexit
  12. The Vent - No Chat!

    I fucking hate Sparkasse.  They are always so nasty and strict to people in financial trouble.   I have no money. Not because i'm lazy but because I got completely shafted by a very big client and it takes 2-3 months to get another due to the sales cycles. I'm now at a point where I am working, and because I'm working I can't get any help, but haven't been paid yet. I can't afford rent or food. My poor boyfriend has been feeding me for weeks and can't afford to do it any longer.  I'm waiting for a very large tax rebate that's taking it's sweet fucking time. And I need to somehow buy flights to go back for my grandads funeral.  Anyway fucking Sparkasse. I have an account and credit card with them and I want to take out money from my credit card and put it into my main account so I can buy essentials. I've been putting it off because  I don't  know when I'll be able to pay it off but whatever. I discover I don't know my pin for the creditcard. Fuckity. They won't let me take out cash from the bank with ID from the credit card, only debit card. IF I HAS CASH IN THERE I WOULDNT HAVE THIS PROBLEM YOU FUCKING MORON. The woman was so unfriendly and mean about it too   This is the same bank that took away my overdraft when I lost my job and refused to give it back because I didn't have an income.  While I kinda get their point, the whole reason I needed the overdraft was because I didn't have a fucking income! They didn't care either, they were also pretty harsh to me then, telling its my own fault I lost my job and my problem to fix it. Like I wasn't already doing everything I could. I hate them.   I'm so stressed I'm struggling to work even though it's so important right now. I;ve pushed back as many creditors as I've been able to. I can't think about anything else and I'm hungry. I had two people wanting to rent out my apartment, one ghosted me and the other ended up finding somewhere else as I was waiting for the first one to respond and confirm. I just want all this to be over.
  13. Unemployment benefits after 1 year contract

    To receive unemployment you have to be actively applying for jobs and be available to work.  If somehow you were offered a reasonable job one week after you left our previous job, you must take it and should not continue to receive benefits.     You might want to take a look at Gruendungszuschuss, which may be more appropriate in your case.
  14. What made you smile today?

    'Of a certain age'?? I have done all those things and I'm only 32!
  15. British universities accused of dumbing down.

    TLDR: While being a poor student doesn't necessarily prevent you from achieving top grades, being a rich kid makes it a lot easier.
