In an open society many of the old clichees just don’t work anymore. But what do you still consider typical for the country you are from?

I think it is typically German to
- consider everything possible "typically German".
- something completely different. I can't recall what it was. Perhaps I should stop drinking wine and go to bed instead.

Your turn ...

NoUFO - not exactly "typically German"

It is a typically NZ thing to complain about the referee/umpire if we lose a sporting event & then sack the coach & captain of the team. It is also typical of us to create problems that aren't there because we wouldn't have much to complain about otherwise. Also it is typical for a young kiwi to do a big OE for around a year before settling down and we all have a skeptical mistrust of any & all politicians.

Not being superficially friendly. Makes everyday life a little more rough than e.g. in the US (what's the point of asking how someone is doing if you give a rat's ass about the reply?), but if a German is friendly to you and talks to you about his private thoughts and life or asks how you are, you know it is not just a custom or a habit, but he actually cares about you personally.
