The difference amazes me...

Well, I love living in Germany. But yes, there are some quite frustrating things about livng over here. The Germans pay dearly for things we take for granted like cheap fuel and oil and not to mention basic customer service is failry non existant over here!

There is a pretty good book(a thin paperback one!) on living over here. Its aptly titled: The German Way... by Hyde Flippo. he talks about all the cultural differences.
