Whilst on business in German cities during my career, on numerous occasions I was struck by the looks of utter horror on the faces of Germans whenever I walked across pedestrian crossings with lights forbidding pedestrians to cross, even when no cars or bicycles were approaching. On one occasion, I heard a man remarking, “Crazy man, he’s probably British” (in German). I was never good at speaking German, and because the Germans I met on business invariably spoke English well, I found that I didn’t need much German beyond, “Zwei Pils, bitte!” at bars in the evenings. Enjoy (video, 0:57).
