Do you ever find a way to deal with their threatening attitude without getting too angry and frustrated yourself? Is there any way to handle their crap

I have commented on here before: Germans will break you ONLY if you allow them. The most effective way to handle these ogres is to, first and foremost, realize that they're complete nobodies. Therefore, one should be totally dismissive of them because they matter for nothing.

Can I just vent a second, as an American I am sick of getting comments on my habits. Yes I take showers longer than 5 minutes! I need to scrub! It is even normal to shower twice a day! If the water did not literally crunch coming out of the faucet here, I would still be showering twice a day. Yes I do a lot of laundry- I don't wear the same clothes 5 times, I like to wash them after wearing! Even wearing things twice without wash was a big adaptation for me and I won't go further than that. Yes I buy a lot of groceries- maybe I don't want to stand in the checkout EVERY. DAY. It would blow your mind to see I used to buy a month's worth in a single trip! But here I try to buy for 4-5 days at a time and I get 'tut-tuts' and comments. And lastly, work commutes suck as a rule, I get it. But fun trips, going somewhere you want to go- any travel time 2 hrs or less is just fine, anything under an hour literally does not even register, can we please not act like a 45 minute drive is a freaking trip to the north pole and we must turn back before we have to make the decision to eat the sled dogs?! Can I just live my life without constant judgy fussy comments and scoffs it is seriously stressing me out

The funniest discussion I have ever seen about not bathing was posted on LEO like 15 years ago (I linked to a comment by a German who had to link to some wiki article describing what body odor is).
dict.leo.org/forum/viewGeneraldiscussion.php

The whole thing is hilarious. It's like describing the color blue to someone who is wholly colorblind.

Germans are the most annoying and most unnerving people. Don't let them stress you out. They're nothing but a bunch of miserable toxic pissants. The best way to deal with them is to treat them as though they were invisible. In other words, ignore them completely.

I will never understand how Germans obsess over cleaning, but they themselves are dirty as hell. I have literally met Germans who don't shower daily because "it's bad for the skin". Ironically enough, these were usually the ones who looked older than they actually were.

Truly a disgusting people.

Why do Germans refuse to use commas to separate thousands? Even if they write in decent English, they pretty much without fail refuse to write numbers correctly. Even in business settings where it could legitimately of intentionally misunderstood.

thoughts about this Post from quora ?

Born to a British father and a German mother. Grew up for the majority in London, but have spent every summer in Hessen and both studied and worked in Cologne and Frankfurt respectively.

Lets have a look. These are my humble opinions entirely. I love both countries equally.

People

Both in my opinion are warm and nice people. The older German generation is generally boorish and in my mind very pessimistic. I think this has a lot to do with the post-war generation. Germans younger than say 40 are a different kettle of fish. British people on whole are more mad and quirky. Germans are more reserved. I find Brits are more outgoing and willing to make friends with expats. Germans not so much.

UK 1 Germany 0

Food

On whole the quality of food is better and cheaper in Germany. Some of the best Italian food I’ve eaten outside of Italy is in Germany. Some of the worst has been in the UK. Germany is “grillen” and meat, mostly pork! UK is more varied in my opinion. I love Rewe buts it’s not M&S. The food in the UK is more homely, AKA Full English etc. This is tight. One a piece.

UK 2 Germany 1

Cost

The UK is extremely expensive and on whole salaries are lower than in Germany. Coupled with high rents, and costs of mortgages especially in London your monthly wage does not go very far. I’m 28 and living at home. I’m faced with either paying upwards of £700 per month for a simple room in a house-share or saving for my own mortgage. This is really unheard of for any 28 year old living in Germany. To live a life of relative luxury in the UK you need to be earning £40k and above.

UK 2 Germany 2

Education

University is practically free in Germany and from what I have seen the education is first-class. I was lucky to go to private school in the UK but on a whole I feel behind my Germany counterparts. They seem to be taught the right skills needed to thrive at work and work to their strengths. In the UK it’s “Congratulations on graduating, now good luck and bye”.

UK 2 Germany 3

Weather

Its not all doom and gloom in the UK. We tend to have gloomy weather but we don’t get unbearably hot summers. Our winters are damp and rainy but not too cold. Germany gets very hot in the summer, try 42c and very cold in the winter. On whole German weather is better.

UK 2 Germany 4

Landscape

The UK has chocolate-box villages, an amazing coast line, rugged terrains such as Scotland, moorland, lakes, rivers and beautiful fields. Germany has stunning mountains in the south, vineyards in the west, forests and lakes. The coast line is okay. Nothing on the UK’s. It’s a tie.

UK 3 Germany 5

Culture

Germany is Oktoberfest, Brothers Grimm, fairytale villages, castles and modernity. The UK is The Beatles, The Royals, High Tea, James Bond and Shakespeare. I find there is more of a wider selection of culture in the UK considering the size of the UK as a whole.

UK 4 Germany 5

Opportunities

In my opinion both countries are great for forging a career, although I strongly believe it to be easier in Germany if you speak fluent German and have a particular skill-set. I find in the UK there are a lot of very talented young people that get pigeon-holed into lower tier roles without progression. All of my friends have not really been promoted, my German friends and counterparts go through promotions. In the UK it’s more who you know than what you know.

UK 4 Germany 6

Healthcare

The UK has the NHS which is our publicly funded healthcare system. Free healthcare is offered for all. It’s however in decline and has been abused. Brexit May change this. The NHS has served my family through thick and thin. The UK is very patriotic of the NHS. The majority of working Germans have private health insurance, with a fair chunk of their salary going towards this. The healthcare offered in Germany is very good but is not always without its problems.

UK 5 Germany 7

Wages

Higher in Germany but you pay more tax, especially as was the case for me as a single man earning over €45k per year. I get paid less in the UK but after tax it’s not too far off from what I received in Germany every month.

UK 5 Germany 8

Daily life

I find Germany a very bureaucratic country and things compared to the UK are unnecessarily difficult to someone coming from the UK. If you don’t speak competent German it must be a nightmare. But once you know the lay of the land it becomes easy and the system works. The UK is much simpler. We have a great service-based economy. Everything from paying rent to transferring money is easier.

UK 6 Germany 8

I have tried to be as fair as possible and these are my own opinions and findings. I love both countries and am looking to move to Munich for a few years soon. However I was happy to return from Frankfurt to London and I would be likely to return from Munich too eventually. For me the UK is home and perhaps we can all resonate with where we were born. Both are great countries just different. Germany is perhaps better in the long run for a more fulfilling life. But then again, life is what you make out of it too.

No offense, but why would I respect some rando's opinion when he believes 40k p.a. is a life of luxury (unless that was written like 25 years ago)? Guy obviously knows nothing.
