I was the weekend with colleagues in Austria and we were addressed more often when walking in the city of strangers. Z.B a good hunger when I have ceased a burger. Personally, I find something good, just thank you. The colleagues did not find that so well, somehow I have the feeling that the Germans are really jammed. How do you see that?
I think it's funny, but rather, because I always have my rest and therefore does not want to be addressed.
I am surprised if you are in practices or Welcomed in village area, although you do not know each other.
Everything is just courtesy or so a kind of knigge, I think. Do you just do it.
invite him / her to dinner, in a fine French restaurant.
I would have been puzzled for a moment . Probably it would run out that I lay grinse and thank you. It's nice.
Then I would have invited him instead of your colleagues.
Next time you just say: Thank you, when may IWish you a good appetite?
I find something funny ... Something always brings me to laugh :)
