  1. Reliable way to receive international mail

    You could also call customer services: https://www.deutschepost.de/de/service1/themenseiten/zustellung/telefon.html#
  2.  There are several websites for that but I do not have any personal experience with any of them. Just google "wohnen auf zeit berlin" and you will find plenty. Good luck.
  3. I wouldn't even try to find a permanent place before you have some income. Money in the bank means nothing. You could spend it all tomorrow. In Germany it is very hard to get rid of tenants even if they do not pay their rent, so landlords tend to be vary. Try to find a furnished place (rules are different for furnished apartments) for at least 3 month. Better 6 month if you can find one.
  4. How to quit your job in Germany

    how many people work for the company. if more than 20, then they cannot shorten the notice period. 4 weeks kündigungsfrist is only possible if the company has less than 20 people or maybe for a tarifsvertrag.  
  5. Got Fired in ah Underhand Way, How Do I Defend Myself?

      Yes, absolutely true. The "you do not need a doctors note for the first 3 days" rule only applies if your employer did not specify a rule.
  6. Got Fired in ah Underhand Way, How Do I Defend Myself?

     So, I am wondering if you maybe failed to submit the doctors note on time. It has to reach your employer no later then the 4th day of your incapacity to work. If you do not submit it on time your employer can refuse to pay you for those days. Not sure if it grounds for firing, though.
  7. Anaphylaxis and Epi Pen usage

    In a recent Ersthelfer-ausbildung I learned that one is not allowed to administer an epi pen unless you are trained to do it.
  8. Public service salary groups and levels

    That depends on the Stufe. You get Stufe 2 after one year in Stufe 1. You get Stufe 3 after two years in Stufe 2, and so on.
  9. You can try eBay Kleinanzeigen. Or for clothes: kleiderkreisel.de   I sell my clothes to momox. Less money than kleiderkreisel but zero hassle.
  10. Problem getting birth certificate for newborn

    The problem is your divorce was abroad. They need that document for the "Anerkennung" of your divorce.
  11.   Actually with preprocessed food I meant more restaurants and so on. I know they use iodined salt in the cantine at work so do the take-out places that I like (I asked).   Speisesalz is without iodine.
  12.   YES. I have hashimotos and are pretty mad about all the iodine in the salt. Sure, at home I can use salt without iodine, but most preprocessed food contains salt with iodine.
  13. I know ear infections are more common in children, but I also had them as an adult and my HNO did not seemed surprised. I also had a ruptured ear drum as a child and remember that I could not hear very well at that time. But that was only temporary and today I can hear just fine. Could your son in law not go to the doctors with your daughter to translate? When I was living in the US, I usually asked the doctors to write down some notes for me so I could google afterwards.  Hope your family members will feel better soon.
  14. Being the outsider in a village

    well, you started the rumor the pub might re-open. maybe it got lost in translation somewhere and they though you might open that day.   the whole town sounds like a nightmare. i would never move to a small town as long as it is not a suburb of an actual city.
  15. Taking time off work in Germany

    where I work vacation can be taken at short notice and vacation days for one calendar year can still be taken until the year after in the fall.
