  1. Waldkita Experience?

    I had an alternative background family. I turned to the Dark Side
  2. Waldkita Experience?

    This sums it up for me  
  3. Probably. That was Spanish Influenza. In the Stand there was 99%+ infection and death. Then natural selection. Then a polarisation into sort of good and evil 
  4. International schools in Berlin

    Very few move across in my experience. NMS seems to take more from the Metropolitan school.  Quentin Blake is a nice school from what i have heard. You can always try and move across when things start to thin out, at about the 6th or 7th class
  5. Being the outsider in a village

    Little Britain more like
  6. What to do with my car when I leave Berlin    
  7. Unannounced visit from debt collection bailiff

    Again, Germany is a tough place and lots of people go through problems, are here to run away, can't cope, suddenly have a shock or relationship crisis, go through a drinking problem, get a shock legal letter lot of help and openness here that you might not get inthe UK. You have been taken in, given tea and cake and judged, you have been found worthy of love and help. Just thank them and take the advice. Yes this is a terrible place but it's why it's so great. 
  8. Unannounced visit from debt collection bailiff

    I hope it works out for you. A clean start back in the UK sounds attractive.
  9. Unannounced visit from debt collection bailiff

    You need to tell your kids not to worry and that the lady wanted to tell you something. Also that no one can take their toys.    I told my kid the airport security was a free massage. Boy she had fun. 
  10. Separation asap

    She is Belgian, she could get on a train.    I would be talking this through with the partner after removing important documents/photos. If you are really serious then get a lawyer first. Did you tell your partner you have had enough and try talking / marriage counselling? Are they aware of how you are feeling? Try talking and if it goes really, really badly then go to the shelter or call the cops. 
  11. Which boat to Harwich? That ferry stopped years ago. All the EU rules about duty free and emissions made it not profitable. If Brexit comes in maybe we can have the ferry back. It was really good.
  12. New employer has delayed start date. Now what?

    I would also add: Könnten Sie auch schriftlich bestätigen, dass ich in dieser Zeit bezahlt werde.
  13. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

    It's an unpleasant thing to find in the postbox. There is a wide range of lawyers to choose from. These are among the leading guys and it will cost you 500+ for them to deal with it. They have English. There are plenty of others and you can get a cheaper local one in German. It's up to you. The standard advice you hear online is don't ignore it and don't sign it. This is not legal advice and I am not a lawyer.
  14. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I was all like oh no I am German what should I been feeling/thinking. Two people now have told me I am German with Migration Background, big difference to German, so I guess no need to give up Shepherds pie etc.
