Certain German words are cool. Like "blitzkrieg", "Dortmunder Union" ( a beer brand),and "telefunken" ( I think that the name of an electric company).

In college I lived with two Germans.

Their majors were physics and math

Even their English was better than mine

:D

They told the landlord that I cooked "stinky food".

The landlord had the nerve to evict me

The landlord only gave me 14 day notice, not 30 like in the contract.

The landlord had the nerve to ask me "are you a boy or a girl?". Even though I was crossdressing. And I was 21 years old. How demeaning

But that was in 2004 San Diego. Before the lgbt laws

And they did not ask in a condescending way

They just didn't know better

:evil:

:cry:

The eviction was a nightmare

Almost ended up homeless

Scared

I am confused.

Did you make a typo?

Did you mean that he asked you that "even though I was NOT crossdressing"?

ie that you usually cross dressed, but he was still confused about your gender even on the one day that you didn't cross dress?

Or what?

Sewers that stink when the air go the wrong way and street musicians. Though i've only been in Berlin and briefly in Frankfurt.

:mrgreen: That's what I was thinking too. You see anyone on those tanks that looks like me? Some people seem to think I'm a Nazi. And don't forget that one of my guns "Big Sig" is made in Germany. Whatever.


Actually, those are current Leopard II tanks. Either way, I can't think of Germany without thinking about a Panzer column rolling down the road.

Beautiful?

Have heard folks rhapsodize about how beautiful particular languages are. But that's the first time Ive ever heard that adjective applied to German.


I as well would say that German is a beautiful language. The languages considered to be romance languages I find to be rather annoying to listen to.

Yes and yes

The landlord told me that "you sounded like a girl on the phone"

And his wife called me "he"

:roll:

Instead they should have asked " what pronoun do you use"

How about "are you male or female"

"Girl" and "boy" sounds so condescending
