*Sandalen und Socken*

It's bad enough when older generations wear sandals with socks, but when they support their kids wearing the same to church . . .

*Pie in Germany*

You know Germans ate the pie you made when they forget to eat the bottom crust. (They don't really make pie, and pie tins don't really exist here.)

*Besteck in der Geschirrspülmaschine*

I don't know if this is just a German thing, but I've noticed everyone here puts the handle down in those dishwasher silverware baskets. I think they think they'll get cleaner that way, but isn't that why there are holes in the basket, so the water can get everywhere?

Silverware in the Dishwasher

I like to put handles up so that you don't cut yourself with knives when you put them away and so your spoons and forks and other utensils don't end up with fingerprints on the part that's going to be in somebody's mouth later.

Then there are those racks at the very top of the dishwasher, where the silverware can be washed laying down. Those are cool.

Which way do you place the silverware in the dishwasher?

*Street Names*

Street names have no system here and it drives me a little bit crazy sometimes.

For example, a side street will have the same name as the main street.

Or a perfectly straight street will change names. Like this one:
