Germans are like Apple

Story time (to be read: Rant Time):

In all the previous companies i worked for, whenever i worked with Germans (DE, AT, CH, BE) (be they companies/customers/support/whatever), I have always noticed this particular aspect.

They always work and think DE (language) first, and every other language is an afterthought, even if they are from a multinational or multicontinental company.

They have not heard of the English language, just like they have never encountered a different time format.

They always have the opinion that “If it’s not Made in Germany[our Company], it is complete and utter crap.”.

I have made the comparison that Germans are like Apple: they have this pompous notion that everythign is their world and their language and nothing else exists on earth .

Has Apple been created by Germans?
