Those Silly Germans


We've learned from past experience that Germans do not mess around. They pride themselves on many things, one being stalwart efficiency (see BMWs everywhere). There must be tremendous pressure from ones' countrypeople to keep up the perpetual modicum of uber-efficiency. So much so that it would behoove one to phone in an airplane bomb threat, rather than just admit punctuality-defeat.

Seriously. Phoned in a bomb threat, hoping to delay his flight.

In today's climate, this seems to be an overly unwise decision, and the penalty will undoubtedly be severe. Schadenfreude is perfectly acceptable in this situation. Get organized, and get there on time, or sit back with a beer and wait for the next flight. Sheesh.
