I got a 365 amazing trivia facts calendar for Christmas (Thanks Diana!). I’m sure a few Monday Lifelines will come from there this year. And today’s question is:
In Germany, people call Schimpf-los, a 24 hour telephone hotline, to do what?
Swear and yell at the telephone operators to release pent-up anger or frustration. Schimpf-los, which translates as “swear away”, charges 1.49 Euros per minute for this service.
I like the idea!
Mind you, I do that every morning for free in my house, with the windows open. At 5am. I like to share and I believe it builds an excellent community spirit.
