  1. Maklerprovision ( Real Estate Commissions )

    And btw - don't worry - when the next "Night of the Long Knives" comes to Germany, the Maklers will be #1 on the hit list... 
  2. Maklerprovision ( Real Estate Commissions )

    Just pay the devil and be done with it - you already signed a contract agreeing to pay the commission - how do you expect to get out of that?   The makler commissions are out in the open:   you will never be able to claim that you "did not know"    
  3. stairwell terror

    This whole australian/austria thing reminds me of Dumb and Dumber:
  4. stairwell terror

    wow... what a crazy thread...  exercising in the stairs!?!  :D    
  5. I'm usually very tolerant of other posters, but this fella has made 2 new threads and posted in a 3rd thread on the same issue. I don't know about you but that's a bit rude and pushy to the forum...
  6.   I got used to the Sundays off and what not. But what annoys me more is when the opening times are 8:00-17:00 and the MOFOs are packing up and closing the store 15-20 mins before closing time. Isn't that false advertisement? What about being punctual not only at the start of the advertised time, but also punctual at the end of the time! Meaning - keep the damn store open and only close the doors when the place is officially closed!!    
  7. Difference when you dress up and down

    German women, once they hit 40, it's all butch hair cuts and men's clothing. No feminity left in them. Sorry but it's the truth.
  8.     I dunno, a lot of German's "facts" sound more like "alternative facts". Like the wind giving you neck pain.      
  9.     Although I've gotten over it now, I was always shocked in my early years here how the cashiers would put up with this crap of digging around for change.   I've been told it's not politically correct, but I tell my family all the time, the motto in Germany is:   Inconvenience macht frei!    
  10.   Good god.. yes..  examples like this abound. Older people in our building screaming at other Bewohners for small infractions. But then same old grouchers park in the guest only parking spaces, when they have designated parking spots already, "because they need schatten" WTF? Or parking their Campers in the "Only parking for washing cars" spot.  What about setting an example? No,  it's privileged hypocrisy!  I would love to scream my head off "Das ist verboten!!!!!" as well.. maybe I'll do it next time.
  11.   Actually, it is the older Generation here that I've had the most rude experiences with.
  12.   Again, why are you so offended? We are not being rude. We are just being honest. I don't understand what the problem is...    What a relief it is to be honest, I feel great, you know.  Hope you feel great too!    
  13.   What do you mean? I thought honesty and bluntness was expected in Germany. We are all Germanified here after living in Germany for a while.. isn't that what you want us to do? to stop being fake and superficial? just tell you directly what is on our minds, am i right?   Oh wait.. you want us to continue being polite while you continue to be rude... oohhhh I get it...  but I learned to like being rude.. oops.. I mean *honest*... like you Germans... it's so much fun! And far easier too!! Honestly it is!!!
  14.   Funny video, but completely wrong. A German would never ever strike up a conversation with a stranger. They much prefer awkwardly ignoring others in their vicinity.  
  15.   You are offended? Oh I'm so very sorry. It's just a cultural misunderstanding. We are not being rude, we are just being honest! *   * every German's excuse when confronted for being rude.   I love it how it's never a two-way street with some Germans.   Now you know how it feels.   This is a forum where foreigners living in Germany share their experiences, what did you expect to read here?
