  1. Not a single joke or unhelpful comment, you are getting soft Toytown!
  2. Wifes Father had a new girlfriend (He gets a new one every year), shes like girlfriend number 8 that ive met so basically I dont really care about getting to know her as she will be gone quicker than she came. She comes over for dinner with him. Immediately upon sitting down just starts off the rapid fire questions, waits for an answer and starts with a new question thats usually off topic from the first, just like my 5 year old does but its not cute. In about 15 minutes I get this: do you own your house or rent? Oh you own it? what did it cost? what do you do for work? but you dont make much money from that job, how did you buy a house? you were in the military and a cop? did you go to war? did you kill anyone in iraq or as a cop? what was that like? was it scary? how many people did you kill? did you see your friends get killed?  have you seen anyone else get killed? did you get hurt? do they pay you for getting hurt? how much do they pay you a month for getting hurt? etc etc.    Some people have no common sense or filter
  3. Unannounced visit from debt collection bailiff

      If you wanna see something pretty impressive that supports your claim, go look on any of the "americans in germany" or "english speakers in germany" facebook groups. Literally daily posts of "Hi, I moved here and speak no german, have no skills and nothing to offer. How do I find an awesome job for my unprepared self". The amount of people that move here or prepare to move here and dont look past the cobble stone streets and castles and just think this place is some fairytale land waiting to accept you is wayyyyyyy too high. 
  4. Compulsory bag inspection at the grocery

      Can the TT Mods add a downvote option?
  5. Neighbours trespassing in my backyard

      I used to be a Sheriff's Deputy in the states and dealt with mental illness multiple times a shift. If shes not a loved one then you really dont need to cater to her BS. Its not like shes the OP's wife or friend or mother and you need to appease her and find a solution. Shes a crazy neighbor and theres little reason to play her games and give in to her crap. OP tried talking with her, it failed. Id call the police and keep calling them until they do something about the trespassing issue (IMO German Police are kind of lazy). Id put up signs saying no Trespassing and maybe the remote doorbell. The mental illness is the crazy neighbors problem and not the OPs
  6. Neighbours trespassing in my backyard

    Heres a novel idea: Go to the Bauhaus, buy a small length of chain and a padlock and lock your gate so no one other than you has access to the backyard. Boom.
  7. stairwell terror

    Wait hold up; let me get this straight: Some poor lady folds or deals with newspapers in the basement for her crappy low paying newspaper job and you are complaining about this because of the minimal amount of power she uses for the lights down there yet you have some obsessive compulsive disorder issue where you need to exercise in front of your door at 0530 in the morning in the common hallway area and then repeatedly check if your door is locked? What exercises are you doing? Like stretching or doing prison style burpee workouts?   Your neighbor has every right to be pissed. Does this sound like normal behavior to you? Whose the worse housemate, newspaper lady who minds her own business or the ocd guy who has the need to do pt and check if his door is locked in a common hallway?
  8. What is your hobby?

    Lifting weights, video games, movies, photography 
  9. Did you ever wish you had not seen

      Ive found certain temperatures and smells do it. Like a warm summer night at the right temperature will do it for me. 
  10. Did you ever wish you had not seen

      Im well. I have PTSD but I function fairly well and dont plan on killing myself or others so thats a plus😆.    You can get it from anything it doesn’t have to be law enforcement or war.  Seeing a bad car accident can give it to people.  Seems to be dependent on the persons personality. Friends I went to Iraq with and shared the same experiences with are effected differently. Ive hit a couple IEDs yet can still drive but a friend cannot drive even ten years later. 
  11. Did you ever wish you had not seen

    Ive witnessed many awful unspeakable things in war and in my prior occupation in the states. I think of these things a lot but as time goes on it gets better. The brain has a way of processing things. I have a dark sense of humor which helps.  
  12. Freak accidents

      Oh yeah, no doubt. In 2006 in Iraq we were in a really bad area. Sometimes we would find the left overs of insurgents who accidentally set off the IED they were burying in the road. The wild dogs would take care of the rest. Play stupid games...
  13. Freak accidents

    I have not had one but I witnessed one where someone was presumably killed. I was deployed to Iraq in 2009. During a guard shift at night at the main gate to our small base, an Iraqi man came up to us and wanted to inform us he would be working on the power pole across the street and to please not open fire on him as he was not doing anything illegal and only wanted to syphon power from the pole (this was relayed through a translator. Its common for the locals to tap into the powerlines to power their homes). He had a large ladder and a friend with him. He put the ladder up to the pole and climbed up to the transformer and started his work. I could hardly see him due to it being dark. About a minute later, there was a huge blue flash that lit everything up and the craziest electricity/ lazer noise ive ever heard. The man fell from the pole and his buddy started screaming. He quickly loaded him into the car they drove up in and took off down the road. We never heard what happened to him but due to the remote location I presume he died. 
  14. Experience With Customs

    I wouldnt worry about it. Those longer lasting condoms have that stuff in it and its for sale here. FYI, small doses of depression medications are used in the states to help your issue. possibly you could find a doctor that might prescribe you a very small dose for your issue.
  15. Delivery tax when ordering something from US?

     Don’t quote me on this but I think you have to pay the 19% tax if it’s above a certain value.  I’ve heard that if you send it marked as a gift from the US and it’s under €20 they don’t tax it.     I ordered a special pair of weightlifting shoes when I first moved here.  They were like $140 and I ended up paying something like €40 in tax. I had to meet the ups guy at an atm and pay him. It felt like a shakedown.
