Germany is a digital country

I know this to be true because their floors start at zero. I took the stairs to get to a customer because he was on the second floor. Since it was only one floor I walked up. Well it turns out the second floor is the first floor. If I wanted to be on the second floor I would have to go to the third floor. Each floor is one floor above what it should be. So whatever floor you want is one floor higher. I figure this means there is no top floor because their must be another floor above it and, by definition, it would have to be the top floor. This only works for infinietly tall building and they didn't look that tall. Go figure! It is my personnel belief that they do this just to piss me off. It’s the same thing in England and India. They all also use metric. Maybe it is a psychiatric marker. I wonder what other characters flaws they all may have. At least the Germans drive on the right side on the road. And of yeah, I never really “got” German high performance cars until I was in one going 240 kph down the highway in a really sweet BMW. That’s either 150 mph or 390 mph , I’m not sure which. I don’t do metric!
Thanks Axel, for a really great week!
