Yeah, just move to Weiden, Germany. Where the lights are slow and the drivers are even slower. I lived most of my life in NYC and compared to over here it's ridiculous. People even walk slower. When you're in a store and they're blocking the entire aisle checking out 93 different types of shampoo, you feel like becoming the next Steven Segall and just start kicking people left & right. At places like the Post office, in NYC a line of 20 people would be like 5 minutes, over here it's like 1/2 an hour with the endless "tschuss," "guten abend," "danke schoen" that I find so superfluous. Yes, I AM a European, but after having lived in the USA you kind of get used to that.
Such are necessary in some places.
No but I've sat behind plenty of ppl who must read a chapter at each giveaway sign ...
