Sometimes you really have to admire Australians and their complete faith in other people liking them and wanting to accept them and make concessions for them no matter what. (Yes, we do think that everyone likes us!)
While waiting in the very very long queue early this morning at the Ausländer (foreigner) office in Frankfurt, a member of the staff went through the queue asking if anyone wanted to renew some kind of residence pass, and if they did, they could jump the queue. When all of a sudden, someone pops out of the very back of the queue saying “Australien”, and holding up his passport!
Nice try mate but get back in that queue! The rest of us have been here since 7am!
