  1. Got attacked by two Croatians in Unterhaching

    Or instead of stopping to question them in real life, you can just do it all in your head as you walk away, and hopefully in the scenario that plays out in your head you can come out on top.
  2. Myself and my wife tried the beyond meat beyond burger, and yeah deffo didn't taste like beef at all, but after 2-3 bites we both super liked it and said we'd get more sometime.
  3. Munich bike shops - new and second-hand bikes

    Thanks for the suggestions i'll try out dynamo first.   most of the time i can do minor tweaks as necessary, but in this case it was the bearings in the rear hub needed regreasing / changing and also the tension on some of the spokes for a rear wheel weren't quite right, and I have a truing stand , but it only accommodates QR and i haven't yet done a conversion for it for thru axle,
  4. Munich bike shops - new and second-hand bikes

    Does anyone know of any bicycle shop in munich that wouldn't treat you like crap if you went in to get something serviced?   I tried emailing one before and they said they wouldn't touch my bicycle because I didn't buy it from them. Walked into another one and generally got treated like junk, curious if anyone here has any experience that could be useful.    many thanks.
  5. Gastric bypass surgery

      That is definitely chuckle worthy.
  6. Street checked by die Polizei

    Had something similar happen to me last year. Was cycling with the wife and we saw a load of cops, one of them saw me and tracked me as i cycled around the corner, then a minute later the cops rolled close to us and it was awkward for a little bit cause i had no clue why they weren't just overtaking us. then the guy rolled down the window and asked us to stop.   when we did they asked for my ausweis, I handed my health insurance card, the two of them said like "not him" and handed me my card back and left. But i presume it was for a similar reason, because we saw a police helicopter flying over the forest then slightly later.  
  7. Cycling clubs and groups in Munich

  9. Are cafeterias obliged to follow their menu plans?

    Just in case the original intent is lost   This wasn't intended as a "the choice is different, woe is me / how dare they"  It's more along the lines of, "this is the pattern i've observed for the last few years, and today it changed" and then turned to the greater wisdom of TT as my work colleagues just shrugged their shoulders.

    Well if the place downstairs decides to stick to their guns, then tomorrow it is Kaiserschmarrn for the veggie option of lunch. are you in the same building as me? :O

    Incredibly brave to struggle on as much as you did Chapeau
  12. Are cafeterias obliged to follow their menu plans?

    Thanks Zwiebelfisch, well they made no mention of it, but contrary to how snowingagain and aussiedog believe the situation to have played out, i just got the beef burger.   The first line  "out of curiosity" went well over some heads it seems.
  13. Out of curiosity, The cafeteria at work usually prints out a sheet on the monday for the food plan for the rest of the week, and up until today they've always served what they claimed they would.   today there was supposed to be  a 'crunchy chicken' burger, but when I went there it was a beef burger instead, and they had changed some of the printed sheets with new ones that said beef burger instead.   I asked my colleagues and none of them knew, so i was wondering, does anyone know if they are supposed to follow what they advertise or?
  14. Lastschriftrückgabe - BEV Energie Insolvenz

    Lucky I read this. I got a letter from BEV in december stating they were going to skyrocket the prices, so switched, but it doesn't help that they were still massively overcharging me for electricity and now on point 9 of their page it looks like i will lose out on a few hundred euros.   going to try cancel their payment of january which will hopefully even it out a bit
