  1. I have been to Germany. There was quite a lot I liked about it. But I can agree… the customer service was pretty bad. Actually, all over Europe we were really appalled at how bad it was. Especially in restaurants. On more than one occasion we had to leave a restaurant after sitting down because no one ever came back to get our drink order or bring us menus after we sat down. This was in Belgium, but still… it was pretty crazy.

    I thought Germans were pretty cold and standoffish in public, but if you cozied up to them at a bar and got a conversation going, it was basically like anywhere else. But don’t expect any small talk in the lines at the stores or ATMs or wherever.

  2. I was really impressed by the fancy tour buses they used for the base school Ramstein Air Base when I lived there back in the early 80's. It was like riding a limo to school. It was a great experience there for three years except for when the headquarters was blown up.

  3. We visited Fussen and the surrounding areas of Germany’s couple of years ago. Our adventures there were amazing! The people were very welcoming. Our experience getting ice water was interesting. I was for ice and was told the restaurant didn’t have any…no worry. I loved Germany and look forward to going back again!

  4. nice video! the restaurant drinks is a very big difference, yes! and although i no longer drink as much soda i notice that your drink in Germany will likely be by the bottle whereas its a fountain drink in the US. Tips to Americans visiting Germany, always pay attention to the size of the bottle of the drink you order.
    And the lines on the roads! I agree it is better in the US. and often on smaller roads here in Germany i see no lines!! The stop lights would also be good to point out. For the Germans….most city stop lights are at the back or middle of the intersection. For the Americans, the stop lights are usually at the front of the intersection. Again here i think the American way is better, being the first car at the light in Germany you are likely stretching to see the light.

  5. Free Water should certainly be offered in Germany, but let's be honest we should be glad NOT being offered free soda refills, like they do in America. Customer service in America is NOT always top notch. I have dealt repeatedly with horrible customer service in the States over the phone and they are just as much of a headache as they can be in Germany. We currently live in Bavaria and I am impressed with HOW NICE people are in this state. I really do NOT understand how people constantly complain about customer service. I have truly never met nicer people in all of Germany. Bavarians love small talk, they are friendly, they offer extra help and our neighbors constantly bring us food (unasked). We have lived in the U.S. for quite some time and have seen both grumpy and rude neighbors but also friendly and amazing neighbors. Personally, I can not see much of a difference. I really enjoy your video but have to admit, it's mostly YOUR personal opinion/a point of view and does not truly state, what's better in the U.S. compared to Germany.
