  1. Advice regarding lying Vodafone technician

    Frequently, but glory is fleeting.
  2. Advice regarding lying Vodafone technician

    A long time ago in a land far, far away. The morning after a particularly out-of-hand party, the doorbell rang. Out the side window I saw a middle-aged couple I didn't recognize holding a few nice little books.

  3. Create a new conspiracy theory

    Are you suggesting we're more advanced than ants?
  4. Worth a try?
  5. Call for app developers

    I taught for this company a few years back: Everyone there speaks English, some better than others. Perhaps someone would have a few minutes for you.

  10. "Right before left" traffic priority

    So calming that it took nicholas-corwin 13 years to complete his response
  11. Coldest hands ever...
  12. Thanks. It isn't a large bill, but the cheekiness is a bit galling.
  13. Possibly an absurdly naive question, but I didn't find an answer using the search box: Are doctors allowed to charge for administering COVID vaccine (BionTech)? I received a bill from my GP today for "Berautung / auch telefonisch" (They called me four weeks ago to ask if I wanted a vaccination) and "Bes. Hygienemaßnahmen Pandemie". I'm privately insured.
  14. If you're shipping the bike as a gift from one private individual to another, it is a gift and not a commercial shipment. Just list the value of the bike on the normal customs declaration.
