*Banks*

I didn't know there were really banks that you pay to keep your money. Don't they realize that you're doing them the service by letting them invest your money? Unless you have a child account here, you have to pay to store your money there, you have to pay to have a credit card, you have to pay . . .

Okay, enough. I have a child account.

Plus, the people who work at the counters in banks received a special kind of education just to work there.

I like how Germany really trains people to do their jobs, no matter what it is, but sometimes that makes it hard to be versatile. If you study American Studies, you can . . . American study-ate? So far, no one seems to know.

Hi Michelle! All these things are so true! :) Funny that they never stood out to me... probably because I grew up in Germany and never thought of comparing it to other countries. But you caught some good issues that really are different. :)
