  1. Rude receptionist at Doctor's office

      no. it´s a free world and even I can post what I like here. But to keep on topic, one of the receptionists at my Doc´s is an English student of mine, so I tend to get priority treatment whenever I need to go there. Must admit, it comes in handy sometimes!  
  2. Rude receptionist at Doctor's office

      - you mean the people in Greece, Finland, Asia and Ireland? Actually, they have all lived in Germany for many years and are well-known and respected TTers.
  3. Returning to Germany, forced to quarantine without paid.

    - on the other hand, a lot of colleagues know that a shelf fell on my head, but I know what you mean.
  4. Returning to Germany, forced to quarantine without paid.

    Sorry, but I have to disagree - my last sicknote had the code S06.0 on it under "diagnosis". If you are bored, you can tell me what was wrong with me...
  5. Returning to Germany, forced to quarantine without paid.

      - Dunno about you, but whenever I get a sicknote, I always check online as to what has been daignosed - just enter the numbers and letters of the code into Google, and you find out what´s wrong with you! Whilst it might not apply to all bosses, mine is particularly nosey and I would put good money on him checking out what is actually wrong...
  6. Returning to Germany, forced to quarantine without paid.

    I would suggest checking with the Krankenkasse as to how they handle this. Did your friend get a sicknote from his/her Doc for the time in quarantine? Or even ask for one?  
  7. Not sure about the legal situation, but I think you should take the letter to the Arbeitsamt and ask if she will actually be entitled to any benefits if she signs it. I would most definitely hesitate to sign anything without having already checked if and how it might affect any benefits I might be entitled to.   Whatever the case and how it turns out, please report back here so that others know what might happen in future.  
  8. Quick needed on hospitals and my insurance

    Did you report the accident at your workplace? If not, you should have done.   Anyways, hope you are okay!
  9. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

      Oh, how I wish more people were like you!!!   Since I am on holiday from work at the moment, I have only met with two people this week, spent time tidying up the garden, and been out shopping once. Must admit I bought a pack of toilet rolls that wasn´t on my shopping list - but they were on special offer, and I simply cannot resist a bargain!  
  10. What made you smile today?

      You definitely are ill, dear!
  11. Why are you unhappy today?

    I am unhappy because the daughter of one of my best friends passed away a couple of weeks ago. The funeral is being held today, in Scotland, and I have been sent a link to be able to watch the service per video streaming. Whilst I want to "be there" for my friend, I am not sure if I can bring myself to watch it.   Modern technology can be a blessing, but also a curse!
  12. How to use the ignore function

    I think that some people take their online persona too seriously. At the end of the day, many of us do not know each other IRL, and have no urge to get to know each other. Thus, the simplest thing to do is walk away from the computer, and do something more productive.   OTOH, if I really want to ignore somebody, why on earth would I need to click on a button to do so? I am a grown woman, and can do things for myself!!!
  13. Hi, am calling from Microsoft. Your PC is infected

    As an update to the above, I received another two calls from them yesterday!   So, when the phone rang this morning I was already on the look-out for call center background noises, and "are you speaking English?". The poor chap did really well though - when I let rip that I already received three calls yesterday and do not want to be disturbed from Microsoft ever again, his reply was "I am from Apple" "clunk"  
  14. 'Flu Jab/Grippeimpfung

    Haven´t had my jab yet this year, but have an appointment for the end of the week. For any of those out there umm-ing und ah-ing about getting one this year, I suggest reading this article:   https://gizmodo.com/a-flu-vaccine-may-provide-some-protection-against-covid-1845495031   - it seems a ´flu jab may offer some protection against Coronavirus!
