People seem to have a very negative view of the Germans.
I've often heard Irish people call them boring. But anyone who's lived there will tell you this is far from the truth.
They tend to be quite good at their jobs and take it seriously, but as soon as they're finished work they become very active. They'll be doing activities right through the week after work. Not just lounging around the house watching TV.
Also, the women seem to be able to have plenty of one night stands and not get called whores, which is a delight, perhaps.
They also have great diets.
Even their beer has very strict brewing laws. You won't find the mad chemicals you find in most beers in any German beer.
Anyway, I just think they're a great bunch of lads (and lassies).
What are boardies experiences and opinions of ze Germans?
I dig them. Played there. Good craic.
I belive they are a hardworking race which makes it an unusual fact that the only German who worked in our place was the laziest sod on God's good earth.
I worked in Bavaria for a year- the last thing I found them was Boring. Party animals, yep, gorgeous women, yep, brilliant lifestyle, yep. An awful lot of beer, yep but also an awful lot of skiing, shooting, and swimming.
Went there on holidays once,stayed in Pascha Hotel for three days in Cologne. Very helpful obliging staff, if a tad expensive.
They know what Vorsprung Durch Technik means.
They have words like schadenfreude and zetgeist which have no english equivalent.
And what about Nena and her red balloons?
they have words like that in dublin....
We had a Kris Kindle in the office
We have a German team leader and some smart ass got him an orange Dutch football scarf
It's just what some lads do, mess up the Kris Kindle
Jaysus, he was highly insulted
I wasn't aware the Dutch and Germans didn't get on
He didn't like the Turks either for some reason
The Dutch always arrive before dinner without any gifts.
