Germany - too much order and rules?
Some German emigrants feel that Australia is a less rule-governed place than
Germany (e.g. Regine). Indeed, verboten
(prohibited) signs such as these (see the photos above) are not as widespread
in Australia as in Germany. A German proverb seems to indicate that the Germans
particularly like order and regulations: "Ordnung muss sein!" ("There
has to be order").
The photos show (clockwise from top-left): a public recycling bin for glass - there are fixed times when you are allowed to deposit glass there; skateboards and rollerskating prohibited; entry prohibited; parking of bikes prohibited.
