  1. Thank you very much, I am so grateful.

  3. Jokes

    Woman says to her partner, 'You look terribly unattractive  in new glasses', The man protests 'But I'm not wearing new glasses'! 'I know, But I am'.
  4. Guten Morgen, Abend, Hallo

    Here too. Do you look at all unusual Cinthia?
  5. Not a bad question really. Pommie comes from POHM, does it not? This term described the first  white Australians who came there as Prisoners of his Majesty...
  6. Air Berlin and now Germania

    Do you mean Ivanka and Donald?
  7. Like chickens running around with their heads cut off, Let's wait until something has been agreed by our trusted politicians.

    I don't mean troublemakers John, Because airfares are ridiculously low, it's much cheaper to fly all round the world these days for everybody. This isn't good for the environment and everywhere you go is crawling with tourists. People fly from Berlin to Seville for a long weekend without even blinking, because it's so cheap on these discount airlines. All airports are clogged up and it takes forever to get through security etc. In my humble opinion, this is unhealthy and has to change. If a few more of these cheap airlines went out of business, it might be a good thing.

    They should tax airfares 200% and get the riiff raff out of the airports.

    On the first day of school, the children brought gifts for their teacher. The supermarket manager's daughter brought the teacher a basket of assorted fruit. The florist's son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers. The candy-store owner's daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy. Then the liquor-store owner's son brought up a big, heavy box. The teacher lifted it up and noticed that it was leaking a little bit..She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it. "Is it wine?" she guessed. "No," the boy replied. She tasted another drop and asked, " Champagne ? "No," said the little boy..."It's a puppy  
  11. Car sharing and carpooling services in Munich

    Yes, thanks Sanitas and all others who helped. It's clear to me now that I have to keep my own car, with all its warts. I've registered with Drive now, it only cost 19€, and I can keep this in case of need. Also, might be fun to drive different cars from time to time.

  13. Car sharing and carpooling services in Munich Kindergarten humour. (Not humor SD!).
  14. Car sharing and carpooling services in Munich

    Thanks Swimmer for that. I must say, when I asked this question I didn't count on all this hostility. People ask questions on this forum to get advice from people who have experience of whatever problem is involved. I have never joined a car sharing company but see these cars. Car2go, Drive Now all the time on the roads. Presumably the drivers of these cars have 'done the math' and decided to sign up. Maybe some of these drivers are TT members who would be in a position to give some insight as to the pros and cons. If you are not one of these people, Someones daughter, why are you replying. You sound like a school teacher.

    Thank you Spider. Do you have any particular reason for saying that? When you add up all the costs such as depreciation, insurance, tax, garage repair bills etc, it could work out cheaper. Also, I see that petrol is included.
