sorry to hear about your grandma.  i am surprised to hear about your hospital experiences though as i was under the impression that German health care is very good compared to the standards over here.
A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Regarding health care: Yes and no. It isn't bad as such, it's more that there simply isn't enough staff to properly take care of patients.
Most of the nurses are friendly and they do their best, it's just that what big hospitals/ homes for the elderly and such institutions really would need, is extra staff to properly deal with people like my grandma- so basically it's a question of cost efficiency as well.

It's not even an extreme example. Over here we say: you better don't get old- and if you do, make sure you don't get ill.

Adult cyclists on the pavement travelling at full tilt with their heads down and tight up against the wall so you can't see them as  drive the car out of your house and across the pavement. If I hadn't paused for an extra second  before moving off my property he would have been over my car bonnet or under my rear wheels. He barely had time to register I was there and swerve out of the way.

They recently put cycle lanes outside my house, effectively cutting of 60% of the on-street parking. No one uses them and the still cycle on the footpath.

yes there is cycle lane out there on the road. If a child had walked out on to the pavement they would have been hit by the cyclist.

Took a cab home from work last night due to rain, adn the lateness of the hour prevented me from taking a bus.  Called the service and told them in advance all I had was my card that evening, no cash.  When the driver arrives, I get in, and he says "We've got a bit of a problem, I don't have any credit card slips, so I can't take your card."

......Why the hell did you take the fare?  You couldn't have let someone who DID have slips get it?

Ended up costing me an extra $4 to get home because we had to stop at an ATM and I didn't want to wait in the pouring rain for another Taxi. 

 :hmmm

thats a bit sneaky, some people do those sorts of things at work though.
