I have always found Swiss border control more relaxed then the Austrians.

I only got stopped in Serbia once for taking a right turn where it was not allowed. I was very nervous, becuse it never happend to me before, next time I would know to argue about how much to pay

About Germans, without trying to offend anyone, I also had the feeling, they have limited humor at work, once I told a joke, like I was used in Romania, and the colleague denounced me to the team leader, because he felt I didn't really care about the work
Running to the boss and denounce a colleague, I find this the lowest someone can get.

About the Germans being humour-proof, especially during work, you're right by my experience. But your colleague who denounced you is more than that, he's just an ass.

I never had any control in Austria with autocar or car. In Switzerland on the other hand police once stormed our bus with drug dogs on the border...and they found some to. Some people had a few grams of weed on them. That was on a school trip in 2009.

You got lost in translation. They actually wanted a bribe.

It is a offence to drive a car with a crack in the windshield in CZ.

Lot's of Dutch trailer trash guys go to Poland every summer to store loads of fireworks in their VW-transporters and sell it in the Netherlands.

Wrong country, wrong continent. There are no trailer trash guys in Holland. Next thing I know you will start talking about rednecks in France or cowboys and Indians in Liechtenstein. Or how about an Afro-American church in Romania...

Could mean gypsies or Romani people, they often live in trailers nowadays.

Yes, but they are not Dutch trailer trash guys. They are gypsies or Romani people. I think he got it out of a movie or something. Dutch people intend to pretend they are Americans at times...

@ Road_uk

You clearly don't have a clue how many dutch (lower class) people live in trailer camps, i'm not talking about Romani/Gipsies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trailer_trash

Trailer trash (or trailer park trash) is a derogatory North American English term for poor people living in trailers or mobile homes, especially in trailer parks.

I live in an urban residential neighborhood of about 30,000 people, mostly middle / upper class housing. There are 6 trailer parks, though most are small-scale, not like those Irish Travellers camps you sometimes see, or the infamous former Vinkenslag in Maastricht (120 trailers). Somehow they mostly seem to be involved in the second-hand car business. Approximately 30,000 people live in trailers in the Netherlands (0.2%). Nearly all of them are not gypsys, but ethnic Dutch.
