  1.   My feed has been full of only these 2 stories
  2. Sorry for the late notice. We're a relaxed bunch of people who go jogging / running (no fitness necessary!) and drink a beer together after. And that's all.   "Hi guys, let do the run in Hanau this Saturday and then have a nice time in Hip Hopfen beer shop. We will meet at 13 hrs at the shop. Pace and lenght of the run will be suitable for everyone. Bring your friends with you!"   "Saturday, January 18, 2020 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Hip Hopfen Hirschstraße 12 · Hanau How to find us Group of crazy people willing to run a drink beer" https://www.meetup.com/Mikkeller-Beer-Running-Club-Frankfurt Disclaimer: http://mikkellerrunningclub.dk/info/mrc-disclaimer/
  3. Working in Germany for a foreign company

      yeah, I've been looking into that.   Some freelancers advised me the main thing to watch out for is that you advertise your services publically, show that you're open to new clients and not just clutching the apron strings of your (former employer / only?) main client?   Or are there any other steps you need to take?
  4. Sozialversicherungsausweis

      Thanks Panda! I figured it out. The DRV is so helpful.
  5. Sozialversicherungsausweis

    Beloved employer wants a copy of my “Sozialversicherungsausweis” (social security card).    I’m pretty sure I never got one, but possibly I’ve lost it. I would easily believe my first employer here back in the day kept it unwittingly or something.   how to get a replacement? Do I go to deutsche Rentenversicherung and just ask for one? Or the health insurer?

  7. Current employmer wants to see birth certs of kids?

      Nah, the *employer* saves tax if they can prove I have kids. Naja.
  8. Why would my current employer ask for copies of my kids’ birth certificates? After years of working here?
  9. Tell me about yourself

    I assumed you were born here!
  10. What's got you flummoxed today?

      I already spoke fluent German before I came here... I’m actually talking about the smaller Eastern European language of my in-laws. Which I can also understand just fine and even talk if get a word in edgeways.   but your point definitely holds!!!
  11. Where to live in the FFM area?

      Why not just live in Wiesbaden?
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

      I don’t mind about the environmental factors but the language thing gets to me.   i put in so many hours to help the kids learn about English culture and language.   but listening to this talk about how people leave the country and don’t come back, don’t teach the kids the language... well, you can’t have your cake and eat it, just going along with a bourgeois lifestyle and expecting someone else to do things... that’s how we ended up with brexit and worse...
  13. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Whelp, back to the grind soon.   Thank goodness I’m almost  healthy again! Wouldn’t want to miss a day ;-)   Maybe it’s a good running start for getting back to office life ;-)   i seem to have broken flummoxed, no one else is flummoxed right now?!
  14. What are you listening to right now?

    The Toytown Germany anthem!   https://youtube.com/watch?v=jclPWidTfak
