*Trunks (or "Boots" for You British Peeps)*

(Again, maybe another Mormon German thing.) Germans use the trunks of their cars a lot more than Americans do. I don't think that any American ever first led me to the trunk of their car to put my bag there or asked me if they could put my bag in the trunk when giving me a ride somewhere. When I had a car, I just threw things onto the front or back seat or even onto the floor, and when I got a ride with someone, I just held my bag on my lap. It seems like for Americans, the trunk is kind of forgotten about unless someone is transporting a large suitcase or a stroller. Then again, most German cars, because they're small, don't have a real trunk--it's just the space behind the last row of seats.

*Movies til the End*

Every time I watch a movie with German friends, the movie ends and I say something like, "That was good," and start to get up to go, or turn to start a conversation.

Then I am hit with the reality that they like to watch til the end of the credits, something I rarely do.

Ads, beaches, parks, you name it. It's no biggie.

I guess this is kind of attached to the indifference about hanging ALL your laundry out where anyone can see it.

I'm sorry. I will never, ever, ever understand how Germans can go on and on about how American bread is so horrible--"so soft and full of nothing so that I can squish it all into a ball smaller than my fist"--and yet they only make toast with the worst bread you have ever seen.

Worse than Wonder Bread.

I introduce "Toastbrot" to you:


(This brand couldn't even think of anything better to say than "yeah!")

Yeah. I don't get it.
