Perception of Germany and/or Germans I have been stationed in Germany. Here are a few reasons that I have found to hate Germany. 1. Germany is a VERY repressive country. there is "free speech", but it is only a front. You can get in trouble for speaking out about almost anything that the government does. 2. Not all, but most Germans that I have had the misfortune of meeting, are very cold people. They will avoid friendliness at all costs. 3. Prices are high, and Germans will charge for everything. I can not call customer service for my internet connection or even my cell phone contract without paying at least a 1 Euro connection fee, and 19 Euro cents per minute. 4. The weather sucks except for three weeks out of the year. Period 5. The autobahn is extremely difficult to navigate without a GPS system. 6. The autobahn is constantly under repair, and the road crews are so lazy that it will take almost two years to repair a 10K stretch of road. 7. Germans "know" better than you about any subject. Period 8. Germans do not understand the concept of privacy. The stereotypical nosy old woman, is an every day occurrence here. 9. You have to pay to use the restroom in many public places, and it isn't cheap. I have even been refused the chance to use the restroom because I was two cents short. 10. Germans will call the police on you for almost anything. 11. When they do call the police, the police are allowed to take up to a 40 Euro bribe on the spot. Be prepared to pay off the police for anything. They will even drive you to the ATM to withdraw the money. 12. There are miles of paperwork to go through to do anything in this country. 13. Germans are paranoid of violence. Don't buy any violent movies or video games in this country or you will be sadly disappointed by all of the censorship. 14. BMW's aren't as nice as you would think. 15. Neither are Mercedes'. 16. German's think fashion and music that went out of style 15 years ago isn the U.S. is still cool. 17. David Hasselhoff is a terrible singer. 18. German's are straight pus$$'s, you arrogant pricks love to talk trash, but when it comes to backing it up are quick to back down when faced with a good azz kicking. 19. German women love to screw american G.I.'s especially african americans, and it pisses you racist pricks off with penis envy. 20. German food sucks! 21. I've never met a German that moved to the US who wanted to move back.
