It’s an article from Der Spiegel — it’s about Germany, not businesses in the U.S., but are we becoming more like Europe?  

Or perhaps, should the question be asked a bit more honestly?   “Is the U.S. just as amoral?” 

“Monique doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about. The newspapers have been full of lurid accounts of how German insurer Hamburg Mannheimer treated its best salesmen to a sex party with prostitutes in Budapest four years ago. “So what?” she shrugs, treading out a cigarette.  “If the insurance customers ended up footing the bill that would be the last straw.  But please don’t go on about the morals of it!” 

Don’t go on about the morality of it?   Did she really say that?  But isn’t that what differentiates us from Europe?   Or does America just keep it more hidden? 

Back in the late 60’s my wife informed me there was a Business “Retreat” for the company where she worked (Griffin Pipe, in Oakbrook, Il.); it was at a local Resort; I didn’t mind until I found out that not only were the spouces not invited, …. we were not allowed, at least not until evening.  

It was centered on golf and the pools, but supposedly, the bank of rooms rented were “incidental.”   Investigation into the other common practices there, led me to sell our home and move across the country to pull her away from there; she’d refused to change jobs – pay was excellent but I disliked the “perks!”   Moving helped for a while, but only a year or so ….   I caught her cheating ….. divorce followed.  

European wives just look the other way?   They allow it?   To keep their lifestyle?  Did you really say that?   No wonder vacationing in Europe never interested me!

About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
