No one (really . . . no one) even having their first ever English lesson would come up with some of this. Mostly piffle from someone who at various points claims to be Spanish, Aussie, and English - which IS possible but doubtful.

"I'm Spanish I come from Spain."

"I live in Australia."

Not buying either statement.

I tell you one thing . Most of you parts in Europe and else where are dresdgud I can't go on about how horrible most people are when I visit your land. For example Germany the disrespectful lady at aldi in Berlin who spoekd to me in German I said no understand.. she then tells me things almost like as if she was jnsultins me I just said paper plastic bag plastic bag ? Where is it by pointing the finger to what plastic is.m she goes on about things almost like if she was insulting me in front of the people lined up next to me. Only one nice young lady helped me with the plastic bag which was under the Counter... How horrible the worker at aldi was so lack in trying to jsut simply help. They know they have many tourists in Berlin so why go all that stress by that terrible in fact a lady who looked like one that came out from the 80s with that hair cut. Seriously I could go on about many other elements about Berlin but let me tell you this.. when I go to a country I depend rsspecr.. have at least things open because not everyone could careless about sleeping during the day. That's why the night was design for you to go to sleep and not during the day. I come all this way to Europe and they shave this terrible habit of living things. Its not practical and not very economical sufficient during day time. InseaIn they make you go out at night. I'm a bloody 44 years old I don't go out at night and wouldn't let kids go play on the streets late at night. Only bag parenting would aloud kids go alone at night out in the dark.seriously this is why some countries are at no good. And for a fact I have another thing to tell you about France but I'll tell you that another time which I had the msot horrible experience I ever encountered.

Again use common sense.
Don't be a bad parenting and aloud your Kris tomplah on the streets late at night just because the sun jsut came down at 9pm in Spain...
Don't eat late because you end up going to bed very late in the am time.
You end up waking up late and you just missed out the morning and breakfast. Do you want more pastry and churros with that? Hope not because that's not even proper brrabreak..
So this is getting beyond me more frustrating. Just like Germany with rude peolle by many reasons.. I went to a musium in Berlin and then wanted to buy a nice meal with coffee at about 1pm and then realise the bakery was shutting down sooner then we thought.. then nothing was opening until night time.. yeah night time when. I rather stay in the hotel and relax and watch the news not going out like idiots. So this habit is terrible where ever most parts in Europe...

Again get to the point to finalise it all. Who on earth would a parenting let Thier own baby and son play on the streets at 11pm at night. And also.on the streets? First I thought the streets was for the cars not for you tomplah soccer in the middle of the traffic.. how about make them go.to a dark park... Yeah see what that would do to your kids late at night... Be smart.. it's all I'm trying to say.

And if Spain nothing open most of the day or at least they close things so early during lunch time. Then what do Spanish people do ? Do they go back to bed and sleep as if it was night time ? What a life
. Must be a boring life if if all they do is on and off sleeping patterns day and night in Spain. Why not sleepnormality go to be at midngiht.. wake up by 7am do your living awaken during the whole day.. then do what you just do eat and go to bed again. Just don't go to bed late and expect your.going to also use the siesta during th day which sounds like on and off patterns of sleeping between day and night. It's no it good enough. I'm really fed up about that.. most countries jsut don't no how.to.ksle.real.money for a living ksntesd they go to bed d for Thier typical siesta .. seriously this has to be changed. I'm going to Greece in December and will.see what goes there next... I would hate to give W negative feedback about Greece but Greece too is in the line between Italy and Spain and Portugal. End.

I think we should start to save OP's comments.
Eventually they will make a hilarious Europe travel guide.
I can't wait until we hear the feedback on Greece, but I assume there will be a lot of "lazzyness" mentioned.

Come on folks, that dude can't be for real.
But it's a fun read, though I'm still trying to figure out what a "Kris tomplah" may be.

I can't stress enough I just want a country tondo the right thing. How do they expect to make income and economisal to the country if things are shut during day time. Can't they take over other people so other workers and take over and there for the ship continues to do business as usual ? Just because a owner is hungry does he really must shut the door? Considering he or she has a store to make profit and there for expect eoople to come in to buy things. Not like a worker who doesn't care less. It's not good enough. Wierd seriously.... Some people are just weird in their own country.. I call that not so productity and economoale. Yet they complaint no one shops in my store.. well if only they wernt so brain dead perhaps keep the hours open during the day.. end of problem right ?

I think it's "kids to play," Cowboy.

I pity that poor German lady at Aldi. I can just imagine this dude trying to ask for plastic bags, in his brand of "English," despite being in Germany. Boggles the mind.

I can hardly wait until he starts in on France.

Who wants a plastic bag in a supermarket? Most civilised places expect you to take your own.
