“No”

From the classsified ad section “miscellaneous” of the Bayerischen Taferl, one of the local weekly ad newspapers, not the first time source for odd things:

Meditation im Advent ein Thema für Dich? Tel. ...
Translation: Meditation in advent time a topic for you? Phone…

I considered calling for fun, saying “No” and hang up immediately – then I saw this one, too, in the same block of about 40 ads:

Familienaufstellung etwas anders! tel. ...
Familiy Constellations with a difference!

To this, my reply would be “No thanks, don’t want your nonsense“.

There were even more such ads scattered around this block with the same phone number (didn’t find a web site for these offers, by the way):

Engel - ein Thema für Dich? Tel. ...
Angels – a topic for you?

So we’re back at the simple “no”. At least when considering how this question is meant, since it actually is a topic since I’m writing about it here.

I almost missed this one (actually the second of these), showing the lady’s versatility:

Weihnachtsgeschenke selbstgemacht, z.B. Bären u. Engel stricken. Tel. ...
Self-made christmas presents, e.g. knitting bears and angels

These come in handy – in German, that is, ’cause there’s the proverb of “tying a bear onto someone” = to hoax someone, which she’s probably gonna do for the other things she’s offering…

    Du darfst Werbung nicht so direkt nehmen, die wollen keine Antwort von dir! Die wollen deine Kohle! Wobei, diese Aufstellung, wenn man es unter fachmännischer Leitung macht, soll schon was bringen.

    Wer eine Frage stellt, darf sich nicht über eine direkte Antowrt wundern. :P

    Was die fachmännische Leitung betrifft: Bei einer Meditations-Engel-Bastel-Anbieterin würde ich sowas jedenfalls nicht vermuten…

    Bei zweiterem haste Recht!
