“Germans like to complain. Even during the best of times, Germans will nag about… pretty much everything. That’s why, for example, German tourists have such a bad reputation. Instead of enjoying a nice vacation (and most Germans still have plenty) we like to fuzz about the weather, quality of service, cleanliness, noise, fellow tourists, children, too much sand, too little sand, etc. Why is this important? As a publisher, you gain instant credibility if you join the crowd and support those who complain by feeding them reasons to feel bad. This will cause more general complaints which makes us Germans feel good. I know, this does indeed sound silly, I can’t help it.”
I thought only the French were complaining all the time ?
