Studying in Germany
Another Brief Help Understanding the Real,
Well Hidden, German Nature
Posted by: Zach
I can not tell you how comforting it is reading negative comments about
Stuttgart from American and Australian foreigners like myself.
I thought I was the only one...
Three years I lived in that awful shithole which I would personally like
to rename ʹShittgart.ʹ I was studying at the Stuttgart ʺHochschule für
Musikʺ, with an asshole teacher, with only the basic of Communication
under my belt. I thought that as I learned more German, my impression of
the German people would improve.
It was only out of pride and fear of thinking I would feel like a failure that
I did not return back to Australia.
But when I did return back three years later, life suddenly grew angel
wings and took off. Stuttgart was a weight off my shoulders. The people
are assholes. Unimaginative, uncaring, unforgivingly always out for
number one, and especially greedy.
The strange thing is, I am not such a negative person as I am making
myself out to be now...its just the effect Germany, especially Stuttgart has
on me. I feel like that place forced me to become an asshole myself! Fight
fire with fire, that sort of thing.
And by the way, not so important, but extremely irritating: the Swabian
(note: this is a local kind of German breed) bus drivers ‐ has anybody met
such thing as a nice Swabian bus driver in a good mood??
Didnʹt think so.
Maybe none of you know what I am talking about i am sure....my words
are so jumbled, like a a negative rant.
But in case you think you are alone in disliking that place because of its
people ‐ I completely relate!!
You are not alone!!
