kathrinpassig "Wir kommen auf Gleis 13 an, der Ersatzzug wartet auf Gleis 12, das ist planmäßig gegenüber", schade, ich wäre so gern dabei gewesen, wenn es heißt "Gleis 12, das ist heute außerplanmäßig zwischen Gleis 9 und 10". @BahnAnsagen

plbkwsk Kaufland in Neukölln. Mein Einkauf umfasst zwei eher ungewöhnliche Produkte: Ein Peppa-Wutz-Puzzle-Buch und ein halbes Kilo Schweinehack. Der Kassierer grinst: „Zweema' dit Schweinepuzzle. Eenma’ einfach, eenma’ schwer.“ Ich möchte hier bitte für den Rest meines Lebens einkaufen.
