Had to wait 2 hours for food at a trendy restaurant. Complained three times. Didn’t get one apology. Didn’t get anything extra as compensation. Asked for an explanation. Got a shrug. Germans are hopeless. Too much pride. Not willing to take responsibility for their failings. Too cowardly to apologise. Too pathetic to say sorry, we screwed up. Shameless and inconsiderate people. We had guests and they couldn’t believe the lack of care. I explained in Germany the customer is always wrong. I am not spoilt but we were hungry... it was literally two hours, I don’t exaggerate. It is the Brazen indifference which gets me. So painfully frustrating. They just don’t give a shit. I’m tired of explaining to guests why it is this way. This encounter summarises why I loathe to be a consumer in this place. Everything becoming expensive in this dump... and for what...

Plus they are control freaks in that they like to boss around foreigners and make their lives difficult.. and you are right too: Berlin is now expensive as hell... For NOTHING.

I read on here somewhere once that young children are encouraged to be more "assertive" from kindergarten onward and that ones with manners are reprimanded. I don't know if it's true but I believe it. Continentals seem to all have this outdated mentality yo be honest but Germans seem to actually be proud of being rude. At least the French have a rich culture and cuisine behind their rudeness. Germans just have more rudeness and war.

During 2006, it was estimated that 55 tons of dogsh*t was created DAILY in Berlin. I am not disputing this but I have two questions:

1. How did they arrive at this figure? Lol
2. What would that figure be now?

If you go by trai to Poznan, from there you can get a cheap LOT.com flight to Rzeszow and then a short bus ride to ptasieradiobrzozow.pl/en/home/ Its a vegan retreat, they give you breakfast and dinner plus a room for anout €25 per night. Just make a sandwich or two for the day time adventures. There's a vegan friendly cafe nearby as well. If yo hear of any other vegan places, please let me know.

Hey dickwad, I was responding tothe post before you, my original post didn't have anything to do with my beliefs, I only said that as a response to the f'kwit saying that people who eat vegan food aren't normal:

if you would bother to look at the link, you'll find the place is in the middle of nature, and they are often booked out, so if it's not to your taste, just STFU, moron.

German spas are probably the only place in the western world where feminist sexual assault stats are actually accurate.

Personally, I have met a fair share of friendly and generous Germans in Berlin. The thing is, they just can't make up for all the douchebags out there. It's a numbers game. But it's not individuals who are to blame. If you go to meetup, you will find lots of nice Germans offering hiking or language exchange events. And yes, they do speak English.

Arrogant, judgemental and self serving and also permanent victims. I have four weeks left here, I will miss my friends when I leave, but I will not miss this city or this country.

I'm on vacation for a week outside of Germany and the EU and my dreams of being away from Germans keep being shattered. I keep running into these savages all over the place. You can sense them by their dour faces and negative energy even before hearing their dumb accents or seeing their stupid Jack Wolfskin and Lowepro backpacks. They're constantly slamming doors, barking at each other like concentration camp guards and sniffing/blowing their noses. I hate Germans so much. I wish they'd stay in their own trash hole of a country or just all simultaneously drop dead. Have you ever seen a smiling German? Maybe when they're stoned out of their brains or drunk as hell, maybe if they're shrieking their stupid emotional political opinions to you or laughing at you for falling down or something. At least it has been refreshing to have people here who, after they bump into me, have apologized. Then I'll encounter some kraût MFer who can't seem to stand in line without leaning into me or touching me in some way like a cow herded into a small pen. And don't even get me started on this ugly, harsh language. It's like LARPing being stuck in Dachau.

Lets actually take a moment and look at that. Everybody kind of laughs when somebody trip or fall down, aside when sb is hurt. There is actually something good behind it. Because the reason to fall or stumble can be some kind of relief from something and it looks a bit funny. Now do they laugh because somebody feels bad? No, they are innocent, they assume the person would laugh about themselves, which is the whole original meaning of it in a way. And adults they can't laugh because they see it as something bad. While at the same time it is bad since they received the feedback then. But is it really? Because they only see it like that because they only see that, since the person who tripped anticipates it also being bad and therefore would seemingly feel bad but in actuality it doesn't feel bad when an innocent child laughs because something appeared funny. So is it about to not think of the other? And the answer is no, it's about to see why it is good. People also love to give blame, like you innocently might laugh and they see that as a reason to express their feelings they had by seeing such a bad thing thing then, you could say as a side-effect. You know they trip and are not on the easy side but not see that as something normal. Especially children might also laugh because of that. Like they were innocently laughing, then somebody gave them poop and then they laugh what seems like something bad maybe. I mean Idk, but the question is can you see that with empathy when somebody trips or would that actually be bad for someone. And yeah you could feel for how they feel when they not cool with it. At the same time we don't like to see it even such ways and it just natural then to laugh I feel. Long story, it is funny in the sense that they shud laugh about it themselves and a feeling is always innocent, you could even laugh from seeing it so seriously. But okay, maybe children laugh because they expect the other one to also laugh and adults just know they don't do that, so they can't really laugh, I mean it's not that they don't find it funny but the thing is a relationship thing. And yeah I think children or rather teenagers do such, they naturally feel to laugh and then feel relief from seeing it so seriously and then they might laugh and it really not mean any bad but they might think so. I mean they might kindly hold it back cause it might be misunderstood and we just we feel bad then even if we didn't intend it. So adults usually don't. But the thing is when something is funny and you just go with your feel (and I really mean funny, something good not some shitt where you try to not laugh and laugh because of that)

Had a Polish neighbor who was a real nuisance. He wouldn't stop smoking weed, and there was no way to prevent the smoke from getting into my flat. Especially nice when going to sleep, in the middle of the night or just waking up (coming through the closed door or a tilted window). Apparently, he sold grass to some of the people in the house, which made him very popular, and was said by a former roommate to receive stolen goods. Property management didn't give a fart, because he always paid his rent on time (all they seem to care about). Then, it suddenly stopped a couple months ago. Oh joy! No more of this poop. He was nowhere to be seen - even better! Strangely and alarmingly, it looked like his stuff was still there, but new people living in the place. Someone had witnessed the forcing open of the door by police officers. But when asked, the new guys (his mates) came up with a story of him having "family issues" in Poland (wink, wink, lol). They also said he's coming back soon. NOOOO! :-...(
Another neighbor, who knows him a bit, thinks he's probably dodging a fine by hiding his shady butt in Poland. This story is weird in every way. Just hoping he will stay away. Sad to think of this as being an actual concern. In Berlin, standards are so low that you must alrady be grateful for not having some scruffy, redundant neighbor turning the house into a filthy, run-down headshop.
