You have been staying with your family in Germany for about a week now. It’s been wonderful…but what’s that old saying about too much of a good thing? No one told you about separating the garbage, but apparently that is pretty important! Your aunt just came in the room and yelled in German, “Who put the food in the yellow sack?” You can’t let someone else take the blame, so you shyly speak up to the angry German woman, “I put the food in the yellow sack, is that wrong?” Frustrated, she snaps back at you in German, “Pay more attention next time! The yellow sack is ONLY for packaging!” You apologize repeatedly and ask where to put the food. She huffs in frustration again and replies in German, “Put the food in the bio!” Wow! You won’t make that mistake again!
