German obsession with efficiency through the eyes of a comedian: With a YouTube video, a stand-up comedian had what he saw as a German specialty.
“Germans Are Not Efficient” (translated: Germans are not proficient) is the name of a nearly two-minute clip by Daniel-Ryan Spaulding (35) of Canada. In the contribution, the comedian addresses hesitation and exaggerated accuracy in solving problems, which he considers as typical of the country, which sometimes postpones problem-solving indefinitely.
Comedian has fun in German ideospheresis
Spa Balding, who has already made several guest appearances in Jan Bohrmann’s satirical program “ZDF Magazin Royale”, points out that unlike in Germany, problems abroad are usually solved as follows: “There’s a problem – you fix it.” Do – problem solved “

In Germany, on the other hand, countless permits have to be obtained, meetings held, observers asked and the guilty parties asked for the problem, portraying the 35-year-old as a person-in-role. And if a long Mallorca weekend comes in between, the solution to the problem will have to wait until next week.
Germans still think spawling is very good
Despite her mocking swipe, Spaulding, who claims that she has been living in Europe for ten years and has been in Berlin for three years, considers the German people great, as she told the German press agency. Because even though Germans are not funny, they cannot at least give jokes about themselves. “Being able to laugh at yourself and your culture is so important because life is hard and you can’t take everything in life so seriously.”
Spaulding also sees the Germans’ love of order as typical of the country: they quickly become discouraged when rules are not followed or something does not work as it should. “Canadians are more relaxed and can behave better with a little mess,” Spalding says. (dpa)
