    After living in both Germany and the US I'll take the insincere American smiles any day over lazy Germans. My God are German customer service people lazy / incompetent. It's because we pay them way too much and they can't easily be fired because of unions and stupid laws like "you can't fire an employee with a month's leave in advance."

    The Codex has never been better (and I say that as someone who joined during the Dweller era, which I still look back on fondly). Just adding my brofist to the others being sent DU's way.

    It's similar with other things. Like the 2-years warranty you get in the EU - theoretically. You don't have that in the US, but exchanging a faulty product was usually much less of a hassle there, because the companies want you to come back and buy again.

    You can post all the offensive political bullshit you want. There's a whole subforum for it. That's why the Codex is so awesome. Or was. Although we already have an official KKKodex Kommisar and several crazy Russian vatniks and/or Putin Propagandists, you can always add to the lulz.

    The people that started this are hardcore shitposters. The kind that go on complete retard sprees and start threatening and doxxing people. Or flooding the forums with tons of spam images. Some people here have 100% legit, no kidding, serious mental health issues.

    I'll take no customer service at all and having to do shit myself over in-your-face fake-friendly bullshit. The only time I expect good service is in a restaurant, or when I actually buy a service rather than products where the service is secondary (like a plumber or something).

    Same thing happened in the Mamma's Gang incident that marked the end of VD's tenure as Codex Fuhrer. A bunch of fucking retards who spammed shit in GD, never contributed to meaningful discussions, decided to fuck with the Codex and it caused much drama and butthurt.

    The place has too many know-it-all manchildren who simply want to goad DU and other users into a fight because it's the only place they have a shred of self-worth. Fuck 'em. Of course once the reality hits them that sometimes they can't just say whatever they please over the internet without total immunity they clam up and/or ask for their accounts to be deleted.

    Let's see how long you keep thinking that way after you've been to the US and enjoyed free water, complementary drinks at Vegas, free appetizers in a restaurant, free refills for almost every drink you buy, food served to you at a third of our prices by smiling waiters that take their job seriously (because they can be fired if they fuck up even once) and grocery stores where they bag your groceries for you in free paper/plastic bags. Free bags!

    It's so easy to shit on the US customer service hospitality when you haven't actually enjoyed it for a few years.

    Or maybe, one could offer good service and all the "free" stuff without this sort of emotional abuse?

    Sorry Jasede, but I just prefer to be left alone when doing my groceries. That extrovert culture isn't my thing.

    The big difference is that, fake friendliness aside, people actually try to be helpful over there. It's such a relief. This goes through the whole society. Can you imagine a workplace where the administration actually wants to make things happen when you go there and is helpful? I've never seen this in Germany once in my whole worklife. In Germany, they are an obstacle.

    One thing you do not get is that, with the ease of getting fired comes the ease of getting a new job. People give you a chance even if you aren't a perfect fit.

    In Germany, you need the right piece of paper for everything, and nothing else will do. They also don't want to give you a job if you are older, because they are afraid they have to keep you till retirement. There's a reason why there are so many older people without job in countries like Germany.

    I feel a sudden urge to complement on your choice of avatar. Whatever your real face is, it simply cannot be more appropriate for your persona.

    Vegas is a special case. Since the main source of profit is people making bad decisions in your establishment, it makes sense to keep them there as long as possible with free stuff and reduce their cognitive capacity with free booze.

    Also, I've lived in the Kwa most of my life. I lived in Europe for a year, and while I was not in Germany, I did not find the customer service in Spain and France to be off-putting in any way.

    This x 1000. Why I almost never shop retail anymore. I can get stuff online and not be harassed three or four times trying to make a simple purchase. Grocery = go at night and use self checkout and/or shop at a high end store. Yes, you pay more but the employees are more pretentious than friendly and won't ask if you need help every thirty seconds. Even in a restaurant too much 'service' can be a bad thing.
