And meantime (one month ago, actually) in Slovenia:

In a Lidl shop:
"Christmas articles on sale from 17th September. Thank you."

So, happy Christmas everyone.

You wouldn't have to run from a Yugo. A brisk walk would do it.

LOL. In Austria (as racist as they are) all Croats, Bosnians, Serbs and Slovenians are a bunch of Yugo`s and they belong in jail. All Germans are *******s, all Dutch are loud and greedy, all Russians are suspicious and the English (a lot of them in Mayrhofen) dress really bad and are obnoxious.

We are getting more and more Americans in Mayrhofen every winter, so Michael... I will tell you what you are by the end of the season.

What are Romanians named? (Gypsies?)
And do they make any difference between Romanians and Bulgarians?
And do they also expect us to speak Russian?

(just some of the things my GF was asked at her work)

You could ask the Brits what I am. (Or the rest of them, probably.) But I watch too many Top Gear reruns, so I already have an idea. :-P

Now that is a typical Yankee statement. What are you, a cowboy? All you people do is invade other countries, while the fat wifes sit at home and eat chicken nuggets. I am beginning to think it was a real designated deer crossing in that youtube film, I wouldn't put it passed you.





(but in your defence

There is no distinction between Romanians and Gypsies. You are all criminals anyway.

What's more is, we shower more than twice a week, change clothes every day, and have dentists. :-P

The other day the Slovenian police chased a reckless driver into Italy (for some 15 km). Are Slovenian police often seen around Trieste?

Never seen it. I think that those are pretty rare instances but may happen and are allowed by agreements between EU members.
