The other day while stumbling around the internet, I found a lovely site with several “You Know You’re From Germany When…s”. Trust me when I say anyone who has ever lived in/been to Germany will get it.
Mmmmmm. The Bratwurst Burger!
Everyone watches “Dinner for One” on New Year’s Eve… which is strange because it’s a short film in English.
Though Santa (or rather Saint Nicholas) fills your shoes with sweets on December 6th!
Ever since Christmas, “In der Weihnachtsbäckerei” gets stuck in my head daily.
“Where were you!??! I’ve been waiting for 16 minutes! You said you’d be here at 3:15! It’s 3:15!!!”
See previous commentary.
I’m glad I finally have a bike.
And at the movie theater. And in the train station. And in vending machines. And any other imaginable place.
No. It’s not a sports school.
Otherwise the “Trash Police” will fine you.
When? = Wann? If = Wenn. When(past tense)= Als. When/If(future tense) = Falls.
A.K.A. The most commonly used slang word for all genders/age groups.
Sadly, even I do this now.
German wordplay to remember English Grammar.

When you buy your movie ticket, you are assigned a seat and whether or not the theater is empty, everyone always sits in their assigned seat.
Typical German fast food.
And cheaper than water.
Ever need a tissue? Find someone German.
Not clap. Knock.
And it feels like your preparing for a Zombie Apocalypse.
Yup. Totally normal.
Generally speaking, the Germans think it’s crazy that the Americans can drive before they can drink.
