  1. Interim Arbeitszeugnis decoding help needed

    What I wanted to say was that the person who reads the Zeugnis could contact per telephone whoever wrote it and ask a few questions.

    I remember reading somewhere that since the telephone was invented an Arbeitszeugnis has no use anymore.
  3. cannot find stopcock

      There is no compulsion to have a cold water meter in each flat, we had some years ago on each warm water tap an indivudial  meter ,these taps could induvidually be closed with a small cock , then when I renovated the bathroom I myself installed  closing taps both hot and cold and now we have one  warm water meter but still no cold one.  The law allows the cold water usage to be divided according to the amount of space in each flat and the number of persons living in it.
  4. Verdi - terrorist union

      Do you want to return to the "good old days" when the employee was treated like a slave? No rights and even having to ask his employers permission to marry who sometimes only allowed this if he could spend the first night with the bride to be. No sickness pay,holidays, or  pensions. The employers are 99%organised in their employers asociations, and could lock out  or sack their employees but they should , according to your contribution not be allowed to strike?         When I read some of the replies here I remember reading " Sometimes when a slave becomes golden chains he believes he has been promoted to be a company director"!

  6. Santorini

    We spent  a week there about 25years ago and were shocked at the number of stray cats and dogs roaming around. The island is beautiful but you are expected to dispose of used toilet paper not in the toilet but in a bucket sitting beside it as the sanitary pipes are apparently too small to transfer it to the sewerage works.Maybe things have changed since then.
  7. Maler paint an apartment

    You can expect €100 for each door which has to be painted plus about €60 per hour for the walls and windows plus paint costs.
