The time is running so fast. I can’t believe that I’m already here for a month. In the beginning of my internship I had the feeling there were so many differences between the German work life and the English one and that I would never get use to it. And I don’t just speak about you driving on the wrong side of the road. There are a lot more differences.
I mean it would never happen in Germany that you call a manger by his first name, especially not if you’re younger and just an intern. So it was really weird for me that all the people introduced themselves with their first names to me. That felt really odd. In Germany people normally introduce themselves as Mr. XY and nobody would dare to call a manager or a director by his first name. This would be totally disrespectfully and inappropriate.
