Denmark welcomes guests

In culture on March 28, 2016 at 10:38

Negative media coverage on Denmark’s approach handling guests has made me sad.

Because Denmark is not a closed country. Everyone are welcome to come here and drink a beer or a glass of wine with us. It is wrong to label Denmark as hostile against immigrants. All we ask from our guest is a little respect for our rules. Something like respecting our women regardless of their outfit and be grateful if our firms allow our guests to serve in them.

And I provide how hospitable we as Danes are. Elsinore was basically flattened by a massive invasion of people from Sweden. The reason was that Denmark during the Easter produce special beers which are stronger than normal beers. For people coming from a country where they drink skin milk when they want something strong, beers of this type cause people to become drunk and violent. About 500 people from Sweden come to Elsinore on one single day and the result was that the city was left in a condition you don’t find worse on this side of Syria.

And here is the point. Regardless of the fact that half of the Swedish people representing the finest Sweden can produce ended up being need to be carried to the ferry and several police men had to maze several of the immigrants, the mayor of Elsingore approached the news today and told everyone that they are welcome to come and buy our beers another time.

Regardless of the fights and the trail of vomit down to the ferry, they respected our culture and drank beers with us.

That is the type of guests which are always welcome – even if they will come and work here competing with native Danes for the job. Because when you try to act like us, live like us you earn our respect and that is the key issue – earning our respect.

We don’t care how skilled guests are. They can have all the master and doctor degrees in the world. If they cannot “hygge” (socializing), they will never earn our respect.

A forgotten state

In culture on March 28, 2016 at 06:07

I read a news story about a reality star being sentenced to jail for DUI. Nothing new there but a little digging showed that I have overlooked one state in the United States. West Virginia seems to consist of people living almost the same as the good young Danes. OK. Maybe a little wilder but it is a TV-show and they make it just a little more extreme.

The TV-show Buckwild shows how West Virginia’s finest live.

It impressed me.

In a time where we all fear that our young men and women redraw from the friday bars in our high schools in order to go home and start their computer only waiting for a heathen to look them up online and start to radicalized them, we parent tend to look for places on the earth where values we encourage, are embrased. Here West Virginia and the typical citizens shown in the TV-show suddenly become a place we parents can recommend safely for our sons and daughters.

Only thing is that I fear that they might not have a good network of public transportation and it worries me as a parent if that is the case. Good young Danes drink some alcohol and they know very early on that you cannot combine drinking and driving. Young Danes start drinking alcohol at their confirmation at age 14 or 15. They have at least 3 years to learn how alcohol impact them before they can start applying for a driving license. Many Danes don’t because they are realistic and know that they cannot combine their lifestyle with too much mobility. That is also why most firms seldom move more than 5 kilometers to a new address if they either downsize or grow out of place at their current address because they know that they would lose employees who cannot follow them because they have no access to a car.

But as I said above. Buckwild has opened a new state across the Atlantic as a tourist destination. Any Dane aged 21 or more could find it an interesting place to visit. Younger Danes just have to wait. The Danish department of education will not grant credits to exchange students because the high schools in West Virginia lack the social dimension which is also important for students and it requires a friday bar where the students can socialize over a beer or a glass of wine after school. Maybe it will change one day when they become wiser. But it doesn’t change the fact that West Virginia seems to be an interesting place to visit.

People are simply not grateful anymore

To my surprise I saw that foreign experts will sue the Danish state because the states made new laws which changed their present situation.

Do they know what the entire concept of democracy is?

The politicians make new laws every day impacting ordinary citizens lives. Sometime good, sometime bad.

As a Danish citizen I am very uncertain about when I can retire. When I entered the workforce 20 years ago the plan was to retire early at age 60 so I planned my career based on that as good as you can plan a career. Suddenly the politicians changed that and now my life is in chaos regarding that area.

When I started at work the BAC limit was 0.8 which is considered the proper adult limit if you look at countries like Ireland and England. Now it is 0.5 and that has impacted the team spirit in the company in a negative way. You don’t learn as much about what is going on in the firm when you don’t sit down and drink a beer or a glass wine once per week in the firm.

It is normal that politicians change laws for the worse or the better.

These foreign professionals have chosen to work in Denmark and a lot of firms have allowed them to serve in their firms. Why are they not grateful?

I am grateful for having been allowed to serve at my job and that is really the attitude I miss with these people.

It is an honor to have a job. All too many people in Denmark dont have real jobs. They are rented out calling it job-training where they help keeping the Danish prices low. IT benefits export. Firms who have personal contacts with employees at Jobnet can get cheap labor and the people in job-training cannot even hold holidays.

These people have real jobs with real pay and I guess that they even earn vacation days.

I have feeling about these moochers I really dont want to put in this blog, so I dont. Please show some gratitude at least!
