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! 🤣

I sometimes look back and think what have I done in my life. OK, so no Nobel prize but I have helped some people through difficult events when representing them in work issues. I have helped train people to be better at their jobs. Always tried to do the best I can like most of us do.

At least I didn’t do this…

I guess us larger chaps will have to wait a while. Would need about 10 of those jet engines to get me airborne plus another couple to lift the fuel. Only about €40K. I can see why you would test over water though.
