My father was German. Once he wanted to repair something at the tv, but it didn't work out the way it should. So he was there at the tv: "This should now be there and this over there." (in German) [tv didn't work] "Jebem ti mater." (again in German): "So once more: This there and that there.... [tv still didn't work] "U tri lepe materine!" (again in German): "Why doesn't that work?" etc etc etc....
that's man of people
