they dont mention the german word : DOCH

This totaly confuses my uk bosses in meetings, there is probably no dircet translation possible.
It means something in the way like, ok you may can argue against, but i still belive in it ...
(Way of solution e.g. it is like i said, final point)

It's like German is such a logical language that you sometimes need to end a discussion with. "All well and good but no(t enough to change my mind)"

Leaves you with a good feeling and the opposit site with nasty mood.

My favourite things were, first, having a beer with breakfast, and secondly, when visiting a printer factory (industrial type not home office) there were vending machines with beer in them!
The biggest surprise? The people are actually quite nice! 🤣
