Featured Video: Germans and Their Obsession With Punctuality

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

The other day I stumbled upon this humorous video, shared by GermanHeit, on the stereotype of punctual Germans.  While the video is meant to be an exaggeration, and most stereotypes are, I feel it is pretty spot on.  I’m sure we can all agree that most Germans are never too early and never too late.  We are just on time.  The German in me definitely comes out when I need to be somewhere at a specific time.  If I am going to be just a little late I start getting anxious.  Watch the video below and leave a comment letting us know if you think this is a pretty good representation of the typical German.
