    So I'm going to Germany to work for the summer, which is great. I'm getting paid twice what everybody is getting here (3 times what some poor muppet who's going to Sweeden is getting) and I don't even have to pay tax!

    Speaking German though, could make even the simplest tasks v difficult. Getting a haircut for instance. Anyone know the German for short back and sides?

    Just thought of another problem frown.gif

    How exactly am I going to tell which magazines are pornography (so I can avoid them of course)?

    You look at a men's magazine, there's a picture of a beautiful woman on the cover. You look at a women's magazine, there's a picture of a beautiful woman on the cover.

    I'm here in Germany at the moment till the middle of September.I've been here less than three weeks and I've almost been arrested twice.The Germans are some nutters!They go mad if the bus or trains happen to be more than two minutes late.Unfortunatley they do not like to listen to my tales of the Irish public transport system.

    I wasnt actually there long enough to do anything. He gave me an introduction to what they do, but like the code for the office door, I don't think I should tell.

    The company was www.varetis.de so u could check that (if u give a damn)
