Man, I'm so glad I moved out of Berlin and came to Poland. People here are so much nicer and kind. Not to mention more NORMAL. No freaks who think they're cool just because they're walking around with tons of metal and ink on their bodies. No open relationships here. No hipsters drinking yerba mate all the time while they listen to sh1tty techno. No passive-aggressive behavior towards foreigners. NIE WIEDER BERLIN.

No. Only aggressive behavior towards foreigners. Poland is run by an authoritarian government. If the EU could kick it out, it would. And there are not jobs in Poland for non-polish people. The language is unbelieveably difficult.

I love the Polish language and as such, I speak better Polish after merely a few months here, than German after lessons and years of bothering with that awful language.

When I first graduated from university a couple of years ago here I got several job offers from Poland and Czech Republic that I wish I had taken. Sure, the pay is bad but if my math works out correctly my standard of living wouldn't be any lower. The opposite actually, since there are fewer druggies littering the streets.

I make around 1000 euros a month after taxes and I live comfortably. Sure, I don't have kids nor a wife, but I'd rather live frugally here than earn more and feel frustrated all the time, just like I was back in Germany.

That said, salaries in Berlin are nothing to write home about.

Poland used to be a laughing stock for Germans - a poor country whose citizens would come to Germany in the hopes of finding a better life. 20 years back, no one would have given living there a second thought. Now people think it's the place to be. Shows how far Poland has come. Or rather, what a dump Berlin has become.

Sure thing. There are plenty of foreign companies in Poland who are in DIRE need of people who can speak either of those two fluently.

As opposed to Germans who are standoffish and aloof and lukewarm at best to your face but rude and stupid behind your back? Who cares what the kinds of social awkwardness would consider a cultural failing? Maybe they can go back to labeling everything they don't like Judenkultur or Judenwissenschaft or Judenverhalten and pretend that that's an actual critique.

Just read this post elsewhere online and it's so true:
"How relieved I am to read that so many other people find the Germans rude and unpleasant! What terrible experiences I have had in Germany (lived there for 2 years). When I came back to my home country I had to have lots of help and counselling to recover and I still have nightmares about it now, seven years later. You may speak the language fluently, be nice and helpful to everyone, go out of your way to learn their customs and what is acceptable, be the absolute model foreigner…and in return they harass you, push you, try to deceive you, pay you less salary than a German, cold-shoulder you, slag off your country, glare at you, shout at you, look down their noses at you, laugh at you behind your back, object to you having a boyfriend whose skin colour is different to you…the list goes on and on and on…In my last week I finally made two lovely German friends who don’t like their compatriotes very much. I am sorry for them that they are the only exceptions, for they surely don’t belong in that horrible country. Before I went to Germany I felt fine. To survive in that country you have to become very hard indeed and the emotional damage that my experiences in Germany have caused to me will, I think, be with me for the rest of my life."

Actually that whole page is amazing to read people share their stories on this

It took 10 years of hell in Doucheland to realize what a great country USA is and how genuinely friendly and helpful Americans are. I am so proud to be an American and these days I’m taking regular extended breaks back in the states so I can experience real civility and kindness on a daily basis as much as my limited time in the states allows."

Found this on that page. I'm American myself, been in Berlin a comparable amount of time and feel exactly the same as that guy. When I moved here I was jaded and disillusioned by the US. A few years in this idiot have opened my eyes. Say what you want about America and its politics, but at least it isn't Germany.

The only thing I will ever thank this place for is reminding me how amazing my home countries both are. I love how everyone here likes to hate on North America, I'll take it over this poop hole any day.

Slave labor. I have lived here for about 7 years and had at least 3 jobs where Germans started screaming at me for absolutely no reason. One CEO called to scream at me on a Saturday for something that had to do with IT--I did not work or manage the IT department at all. It was like Gobbels in the propapganda speeches from the 1930s and 40s. The dude had zero idea how his company worked. Which is why it was yet another failing Berlin Startup. I quit 4 weeks later. I cannot recommend this city at all.

Had an account management job for a while at a mediocre, failing startup (it still exists somehow but I honestly cannot imagine how that's possible since then, when they were doing about 6-8x the amount of sales they couldn't get profitable) and one of the country managers called me on a Saturday because of an IT problem as well. Of course yelling and threatening. That company was so retarded and corrupt. Had a summer party there once where they were bragging about how they used to party so hard at the beginning (luckily I started much later) and about how once a neighbor complained their employees were pissing in the courtyard (with a video of it! - neighbors must have NOT been Germans). Prepubescent city full of immature addicts and unstable cretins.

Hatred of foreigners is embedded in German society. It is not everyone. But everytime you read a job ad and you see "fliessend Deutsch" or "einwandfrei Deutsch" for jobs putting together a table or working as a usher, you know this country is maybe f*cked up. Try to find a job as a Aushilfer. The new trend is to do Bewerbungsrunde and force all the foreigners speak in front of the Germans who speak einwandfrei Deutsch.

I lived in Germany for ten years and I agreed 95% of Germans are indeed rude, boring, mechanized barbarism, overused logics above common sense and angry people. Not only they don’t like foreigners they also don’t like themselves, they are fake for being friendly in between conversation to each other. Customer services are definitely the worst I have even seen, terrible yet horrible, Agreed with Matt, the only nice Germans are those who have been civilized by spending time abroad and by traveling outside Germany. Most Europeans hates them, Germans think they are infinitely superior to all foreigners, regardless of the IQ of the German concerned. America and Asia got rich utilizing the skills and intelligence. Current Germany on the contrary drives out every skilled foreigner, preferring only to keep those willing to work as waiters, cleaners or street sweepers.
Germans become consumed with envy and jealousy if they see a foreigner with more skills or assets than themselves.
They drive out foreigners not with laws but with coldness, mercilessness, hardheartedness and prejudice.
My advice to all foreigners in Germany: leave for a friendlier emigration country; last one out lock the door and leave the Germans to destroy each other with their petty jealousies and cold hearted hatred. (Its in their DNA)

Why so many germans are assholes ?
Well first if you are german , you can call me racist, I dont care, I am racist against assholes,. yes !!
And second, not all germans sucks, but lets say, most of them.
It makes things clear.
So fornicate off now.

So first point.
Germans are materialist.
I mean its normal, everybody wants money.
But I hate whores, and you can find whores everywhere there, even normal women can be whores.
So fornicate it.
People can do all for money, lie, cheat.

Then, Germans are arrogant.
I mean not just, boast.
But plain arrogant, like I am always right.
The german says : I am specialist in freaking poop and I have 10 years of experience in that domain so shut up and if you dont agree, fornicate you.
Well, what the hell.
And then German thinks he knows all better. If you have different opinion, ok its your opinion, he doesnt give a poop about it. You wont convince him, forget it. He knows better.

Germans are nationalist.
Yeah, this sounds scary.
So many germans think : oh too many foreigners here in Germany.
They say, not enough job for Germans, so we dont want foreigners , except if they do poop job and shut up.
And they think Germany is best coutry, that they play so good football, have good biers, have beautifull women, and are intelligent people that all world loves.
They think, oh americans they are nice and kind to us germans, they love our perfection, such naive people.
They think, oh poor countries, I dont like , they are dirty and not developed and lazy. Only germans can work hard.
Etc.

Germans think they can do all better and they are superior to all other people.
And when they do holidays in Spain or France, they think they can buy all with money, and they keep smiling and say, hey we are nice germans, we love you all.
Fuck that !

So a German will be nice to you if you are american, french or spanish.
But if you are african, arabic, turk, or other, he will think you are inferior and poor.

Thats the point.
Thats it all.

For the country who's Motto is "Ordnung muss sein". The county who's populace will wait at a red walk light at three in the morning with no one in a hundred km radius. The country who prides itself on engineering and culture and problem solving.

Why do they allow all the bike theft. I utterly refuse to believe nothing can be done. After all, the Germans pride themselves on their order and endless rules and other aforementioned things.
So it's not that they can't do anything about it. They just don't care. I've had two bikes stolen which were properly locked and stowed within two months
I'm so annoyed I might just walk across the street on RED!

Besides the city being filthy, and full of homeless people (which I don’t blame, btw, just a fact) there’s the high taxes in this country that everyone seems to have a blind spot for. If you’re single, with no family, your mandatory health insurance is high enough to cover and entire family of four. The pension payments are even more insane and mandatory. Fine, but you don’t even see where that money goes. It’s not invested, you don’t know how much you have and you just have a government promise that when you’re old you’ll get it back. Maybe. So, kiss up half your salty good bye if you work here. Couple with the rapidly rising rents here you won’t have a lot left over.

But what really gets me is how big a dump and how many homeless people are here. Despite all the huge deductions from your salary (including social security btw) this city just seems like a wreck. And makes you ask: where the hell is all my money going?

What a joke.

I'm honestly surprised you don't hear more about MRSA in Germany but then again, I have serious doubts as to whether health professionals here are even trained or equipped to recognize it. Last year I heard a lot about hospitals in the UK and US having to completely strip hospital rooms and remove ceiling tiles to get rid of it. Meanwhile in Germany they don't even change the coverings on examination tables between patients (eww).
