I was there visiting with my friend to see her in-laws, and I noticed the people did not smile much in public, and when you eat, you had better clean your entire plate, I found that out the hard way.

Americans tend to be friendly and smile and say hi to people in public, but that seems to be taboo in western Europe. I lived in Netherlands and when you stand in the line at the grocery store, people do not even make eye contact with one another.

One day when my friend and I were staying at the inlaws who live near Frankfurt, we went with the German MIL to a furniture store. My friend and I saw something funny and we started to giggle, when the mother in law admonished us and told us to quit being silly. She was quite stern!

Re: Why do Germans have no sense of humor?
They don't understand humor. You need humanity and compassion to have a sense of humor. They are too busy working and getting ahead to care about the meaning of life.

They are just stiffs in general. They do laugh but it is usually just at someone's suffering. It is not very humorous.

They take themselves very very seriously.

Completely depends where you live, counts for U.S. and NW-Europe. Cannot imagine you will be walking through Manhattan doing a Crocodile Dundee waving at everybody. I live in a small village, and we all still say hello - out on the street and in the grocery stores. I work in the city, and -indeed- no-one does what you said.

I lived in Amsterdam and did my daily grocery shopping. Being very crowded there it would be difficult to say hi to everyone. The Dutch people I met and knew were very nice, I liked it there and the city was beautiful. I was sad when we came back to the states.

no kidding.. its so irritating to me when americans assume the whole damn country is the same as the town they live in. when the entire us is about the same size as all of freaking europe... but they dont think that the french or the germans or italians are the same.. even though their countries are all right next to each other.

Re: Why do Germans have no sense of humor?
Three men and an old woman stranded on a desert island.
they had nothing to do and decided to share the woman for sex.
The old woman has nothing to lose anyway, and agrees.
So it goes for a few years,
when suddenly the woman died. The three men were devastated.
The first month was almost unbearable,
the second even worse!
And in the third month they were nearly out of their minds!
In the fourth month, they buried the woman!

Re: Why do Germans have no sense of humor?
You others would feel German humor is absolutely strict.

Yes, they laugh upon destruction of their enemies.

Now in this days is not much left for Germans

to laugh about but they are prepared for the next laugh,
when the angloid leaders will fall, then you will be able to see them celebrating.
