I live in the UK but work for a German owned company. This means I work about a week a month in Germany with my German colleagues (I'm part of a team of 11; 9 Germans and 2 from the UK).

Earlier this week we had a team building exercise to address (amongst other things) any inter-cultural Germany/UK differences. I suggested that if it's a Germany v England World Cup final that I'd go over to Germany to watch it with them - that'd test our ability to put national differences aside

And why on earth do I see a 'PORTUGAL' when I look at your avatar? WHY?! Cool game you're referring too, btw. 2:0 was a real surprise.

'Inter-cultural Germany / UK differences'?! May I ask what exactly you did exercise? And I'm not sure if a FIFA final is the best occasion to test it

Tomorrow I'll have fun being the only Greek cheering for Korea
And later of course I'll be supporting England. I'm afraid I'll have to spend my whole day in pubs.
I'm torn about the Argentina-Nigeria game. I like them both. Yes I know who has better chances, but that never stopped me before

It was more around differences specific to our company I think. Personally, I find my German colleagues to be pretty easy to get along with (although I'm always embarrassed at my lack of the German language and their mastery of English).

Germany wins on sausage; England wins on beer IMHO (although it wasn't part of the agenda).

Ok, I see. If you're looking for some nice people to talk German with: they are just one click away: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=159 We're always happy to have some visitors from other countries.
