not to mention the Germans in general and Bavarians in particular.
A few years ago a freind told me something that had happened at her office:
Two secretaries were working overtime and one ran out of paper. She had only one sheet left but needed another 10 and the guy who had the key to the paper storage room had already gone home. She asked her colleague but she happened to have no paper either and told her instead: "why don't you just go and take some from the photocopier?" - "Excellent idea", her colleague replied, went to the copier and made 10 copies of her empty sheet of paper.
