    Love the German Bureaucracy part. Germans pride themselves on efficiency and yet their Bureaucratic system is horrendous.

    No Germans are not brutally honest.

    They are actually disgustingly politically correct. From my experience anyway.

    I once did a test while living in Germany of crossing the street against the "little red man". Standing with 8 Germans on a corner, and no traffic coming at all, I crossed against the light. Feeling like I was about to be dragged into Gestapo headquarters, I turned around and found all the Germans following me, single file, one behind the other in a nice, even, straight German row. All the Germans ever need in order to follow their "inner Schweinehund" (their baser instincts) is a "Fuehrer".

    The supermarket is accurate. This one time i was late to get the money off my wallet, then her face went numb. So i left the change and took few steps, then she smiled and call me to come get it. I said, take a vacation
    U need more smile on your face

    You know you're german when you start to develop different tactics to be faster than the cashier

    But honestly, just learn the language and obey the law and we'll love you wherever you come from. Except you're from Elsaß-Lothringen 😛

    I'm loving this, Rachel! More please!
    on a side note, for years I kept thinking 'how the F can someone manipulate/or millions (let themselves) be brainwashed into committing murder/genocide!?' …the citizenship test finally explains it all. 😐

    This should not reflect badly on my love for Deutschland… I often fantasize about a Grossdeutschland, where we all drive reliable cars, not italian junk, the public transport is on time, not hours late like in Italy, and everything else is efficient and works like clock-work, not always on strike, useless and incompetent as in Italy… and don't get me started on italian bureaucracy. This should reflect as it sounds, on my absolute/unconditional hatred for that rancid vile soil South of the Alps.

    I thought that thing about the green pedestrian light until it was Germans that thought me that as always with German customs and laws there are exceptions for about a ⅓ of the cases.

    Just like with every other citizenship test us natives (here germans) would fail miserably especially with the supermarket one is tough and a important step for your functionality in German society

    Here in Ostfriesland, a part of Northern Germany, it’s traditions to have tea with cream and Kluntje (Crystalized Sugar). Everyone who says otherwise shouldn’t be allowed out of Germany 😉

    After the hectic encounter with the cashier I always leave the supermarket with a loud „Scheißladen”; which makes me even more German.

    I remember how shocked I was, when the cashiers at the supermarket started talking to me. Hello and Good Bye! Before they couldn't talk. 😮 Still undecided whether I like that chattering….

    I think I could be a German. I enjoy grumbling, being brutally honest and no silly chit chat. Except for the breakfast bit. That's two days worth of food there.

    As a Brit who has lived most of his life in Germany I always cross on red, providing it is clear and those waiting usually follow me 😀 … The irony is that walk a few yards away from the crossing and you can cross legally anyway. They need us to show them the way.

    and the german bureaucracy cannot work without loads of paper-they will do everything to make life as difficult as possible interpreting laws according to their will and fancies.

    Not smiling at anyone on the streets! That should be on the test! I can’t help but smile at people with whom I make eye contact or when people hold the door for me. But here no one smiles !

    Maybe you should point out more clearly that it's not actually true… because it's really close…. too close.

    About the Cashier situation, here is what I do. I started to not give a damn. If the cashier believes he/she needs to race the items at a velocity that I cannot keep up with, I'll slow down on my part and take my time. Seriously, what kind of a terrible service is that? In America or Canada, the Cashier even packs the stuff in a bag for you, and here you almost got to catch your stuff. If the cashier starts racing the items, just slow down on your part and let the scanned items pile up on him/her. And even if there is a long que. Don't care. There are often 5 cashiers, but only one or two are operated. It's the stores job to hire enough employees to handle the situation, and not make the customers get stressed out about keeping up with the cashier who tries to compensate for a number of other missing staff. Greedy management.

    I have been to many countries, even lived in some and was obliged to many of their people and habits. Japan, China, England, France, Austria, Russia and Swiss. Every country seemed to be able to deal with its own prejudices and cultural problems more or less accepting their faults while trying keep them at bay. And yet it seems to be only this country to have widespread media producing content to criticize itself up until a point where it feels selfdestructive. And yes, I am German.

    The doctrine of Marcism and Leninism is known to me as well as the deeper concept of capitalism. Many Germans probably feel the same without even knowing it, after all it is a big part of their education. While trying to make the best out of both values that define so much of our society, I often wonder what kind of person you'd have to be to sell this as satire. Either that person does fully understand that those who watch only laugh at it without ever thinking to change the problem, lest learn something from it, or that person doesnt care as long as his/her values are being broadcasted to the public out of political reasons. Either way, it smells of egotism. A value we Germans like to sacrifce a lot for. And I bet this woman sacrificed a lot so to be a part of the game.

    Gotta hate it when, after paying but before packing the items, the cashier already starts to scan and push the items of the next customer on top of yours already. After this occurred a few times, I just blocked it by putting my EC card into the terminal without typing the PIN down, and just collecting my items at a leisurely pace, and only AFTER finishing that, typing the PIN. The cashier would very often "REMIND" me about the need to type the PIN down, as if he or she thought I FORGOT TO, really just trying to rush me in that way. I just nodded my head with a disarming smile and kept packing my stuff before doing so. There was nothing she or he could've done, and surely there was no possibility to start another transaction and scanning other people's stuff before that.
