What is up with all these gross people here who blow their noses right on the sidewalks? And I don't mean they use a tissue - I mean they just close one nostril and blow their snot straight onto the ground. Filthy people here.

Some Berliners poop in public, too. The amount of people in public spaces who, judging from their smell, obviously pooped their pants is hilarious.

Leaving Germany was the BEST decision I ever made. Every aspect of my life has improved. Once you leave you will see what a poop -hole Germany is. A complete waste of time and life. Just leave...you will discover humanity again.

A lot of people still choose to remain in berlin or germany despite having the constant feeling that they don't belong here. Why ist that?

Yes it's a trap. We are fed all this nonsense about how great these places are and things can look good on the surface. After you arrive here you think that you ought to be enjoying it. You start to think that you are going crazy for feeling so negatively. Then slowly but surely you see this place for what it really is. You then realise that things aren't going to get better.

Remedy is either leaving or else if you stay near any of the 9 bordering countries, all of which are better , to spend time there and go for walks etc.

many of the people that remain did it less out of actively having a choice and more out of desperation and need. no sane person would put up with all the negativity and mistreatment if they had a choice or second option. germans love to gossip about all the foreigners disrespecting their land, even if their own is trash, but the truth is, those foreigners are the ones taking on essential jobs that keep their sick society going.

One thing that particularly irritates me about Germans is that most of them have done their fair share of travelling, yet they remain incredibly ignorant about foreign cultures, not to mention downright racist and tactless in their treatment of non-European people. What's more, those who travel a lot are usually barely able to communicate in a foreign language. Some of them had been to more than 10 countries, yet their English was deplorable.

They're essentially a very arrogant and tribal minded people. When they go abroad they act as if they own the world. They have no desire to understand another culture. In fact, they see travel as an opportunity to diss it.

I'm in Thailand at the moment and had the unfortunate incidents of striking up conversations with fellow travelers who turn out to be Germans. OMG, they are so stilted and lack any ability for repartee or spontaneity. It's sad for them and for us who have to live on the sme planet as them. .

Knowing better is dumb anyway because very often it isn't about how you do something but that you stay with your feel without this stupid looking into it. Because by doing so it undermines everything. Life is meant to breathe, often things look ways when you don't stay with a feel and only later you see what it actually is. A feel isn't just there for no fuc-king reason.

It's because of their poor social skills. What difference does it make if you travel but unable to make any interaction because you are unable to strike up a conversation with somebody, to ask questions, be curious about local customs etc. And yes, the constant sense of superiority is also a cause.

Germans have no feelings. And if they do, they are probably not as intense as those of normal people.

True. Germans are everywhere, like... Germs. Still, they assimilate nothing from their travels.
They are close minded by default or something.

lot of scumbags. on the street, in the tram, in the apartment. Of course, also at the workplace (extreme unethical behavior including misconduct in working conditions, mobbing and sexual harassment). Basically you cannot run away from dysfunctional and obnoxious people. Big city problems? Consider that thought again staying here for a long term. counting the days left till getting my permanent EU residence and will get the fornicate out for good.
-youngster, hardcore techno fan to get broken up for a short while? come to berlin, you will have the time of your life.-
-adult in early 30s etc., want to build a decent and stable life (flat, job, friend circle etc.) in a big european city? don't bother even considering

Yippee!!! Three thousand contributions to helping people in Berlin know they are actually sane, but have been driven to question their own ideas of what a decent person is. Many people have benefited greatly from BerlinHater, myself included. I used to think I was going insane until I read other people's comments about feeling the same. It helps you to put the pieces of the puzzle together. I left Berlin three months ago and now enjoy genuine acquantaince and friendships again.

I feel peaceful, self-accepting and love every day of my life again. I don't even regret the years I sqaundered there. Thanks again for starting BH'er. If you relly get stuck, do this online, it's either .com or .net TheReleaseEffect

At the moment I'm in India and the people are exceptionally friendly and courteous, the opposite to Berlin.

Why are there so few toilet paper roll holders in this country? They cost like 3€ but somehow I am constantly seeing public toilets where they just leave a roll sitting on the back of the toilet or on some ledge. Thinking of people touching all over the toilet paper with their nasty hands is just plain gross. Also every apartment I have lived in here has not had one preinstalled. Why are Germans so dumb?

One time at work (where there is no toilet paper holder) I noticed someone had somehow ended up wiping sh*t all over the inside of the roll. So f*cking disgusting.

They probably got sick of drug addicts and alcoholics stealing the holders for a hit or a bottle. Fk Berlin, it's a piece of poop that needs a huge, gigantic, enormous piece of toilet paper to wipe this butt end of the world.

Most of the problems you people encounter in Germany (let's be honest, it's not just Berlin) boil down to passive racism.

Germans have NO respect towards immigrants outside of wealthy Western European nations.

I have lived in UK, Netherlands and Austria before. I have never seen such people to stop at the middle of the way suddenly without any purpose. On the other hand, so many people bump into me while walking or trying to get into train or bus. This was never the case in other countries I have lived.

Germans there is a term called environmental control and there are people around you as well. You are not alone in public.

Occasionally there are police killings here, like the one someone happened to capture on video inside Neptunebrunnen a few years ago. But people don't talk about it and now posting images or video of it online is highly illegal so you'll hear even less. When you look around you begin to realize that this country is all about information control disguised as privacy protection.
