  1. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I used a separate sheet of paper and referenced it in the form. See earlier in the thread for the details.   EDIT: Oops it was this thread that actually had details of what I did. It's a thread about 'Practical questions on the application' so it might be of help anyone reading this.
  2. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I think I left it blank and asked what I should write in. If I recall correctly the guy put something like "EU-Staatsbürger. Doppeltestaatsbürgerschaft erlaubt."  
  3. If you are not covered then your insurance will give you a good argument as to why. Until they do, it is your fault.  
  4. OP If you have insurance, why don't you want to use it? This is exactly the kind of situation you need it for. You were not negligent, but you were responsible for the damage, let the insurance pay or argue the case.
  5. Obtaining a SCHUFA credit report online

    You can always get a report, but as you guessed it probably won't say anything useful. Although  even just a blank report says something.  For €30 I wouldn't worry about it, but if it means that much to you then ask your landlord.  
  6. Obtaining a SCHUFA credit report online

    It's not a requirement of law that you get this check, but rather a requirement of your landlord. The only way to know if your landlord requires a report for your wife as well as yourself is to ask. Personally I think such a report has little value if your wife is not independently economically active, but  they may have other ideas.  
  7. Why are you happy today?

    I'm sick with man-flu, but I'm also on vacation and visiting my parents for the first time in years. I could be at home feeling guilty about not getting my work done,  and needing to go to the doctors for a sick-note. I could be sad and stressed that a much needed family holiday had to be cancelled. Instead I'm curled up in bed with a cup of tea and my family are downstairs having a great time planning where to go today. If I'm going to be sick then being sick here is much better. That makes me happy.
  8. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I'm not sure either, sorry for the mistake and good luck with your application.
  9. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    Make an appointment for the test already, then prepare for it to a fixed end-date, it focuses the mind rather well. The earlier you start getting your paperwork together the earlier you will finish and the more likely it will be that you get done before Brexit. Don't let perfect be the enemy of good.  
  10. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    The pass rate on the citizenship exam is staggeringly high, so if you are regularly getting 90% I would say just go for it. 
  11. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    Go start the Einbürgerungs process anyway. They have a lot of leeway, and you may just find a sympathetic person willing to push you through. If not then you will at least have a concrete set of things you need in order to apply.  
  12. The shops use different alarm systems, and you have a tag from a shop that uses the system from the shoe shop, stuck on or in an article of clothing. Look for a flat square sticker with a metal pattern on the back, they sometimes get stuck to your shoe or the bottom of a bag.  
  13. OK Stalking was perhaps a bit strong, but based on your own post, you already know that this isnt' really on. It's great to care about people and you are right that good friends are hard to find and harder to keep, but as Franklan said, good friends are people you share personal information with, last-names, phone numbers, postal addresses etc... Like I say if she wanted to keep in touch with you and she was able to then she would. If she doesn't want to keep in touch you should respect her boundaries, if she is not able to keep in touch then it is unlikely you can help. Either way you should probably just give it up.
  14. If she wanted to stay in touch she would have done. I don't really think we should be helping you with stalking her.  
  15. Refusing to pay TV license fees (Rundfunkbeitrag)

    This thread is all about what happens if you don't pay. It's really up to you if you do or you don't. Personally I pay, but if I didn't I would at least put the money aside in a savings account so that I had it available if/when they caught up with me.
