How is the tourist situation – do you have many customers?
Oh yes, every day there are English, German and Japanese speaking tourists passing by. Weekends are very busy, weekdays rather calm. Also some local Germans want to take photos with us, but not that many.
Ok thank you – here’s one euro for letting us to take a photo.
Wait! You have to give me five euros. You took up five minutes of my time and this would normally cost five euros! Because of you I didn’t make photos with the tourists.
But there are no tourists around at the moment?!? And we don’t have so much money!
Then another guy, must be some kind of boss of the angels, shows up and says: “Give the guy five euros like he asked!”
Well we do not have five euros and we normally do not pay at all for getting an interview.
Seeing that there is no way we can win this argument, we looked for some more coins and achieved a compromise with three euros. It was the first, and hopefully the last time when we had to pay for an interview.
