"Ich habe meinen neuen Paß erhalten; herzlichen Dank nochmals für den schnellen Termin."
"Dear Ms. Drahola and Mr. Becker,
I want to thank you for all your help yesterday in processing my application for a German passport. The process went much smoother than I imagined, given that my German documents were over 60 years old. As you both saw, my knowledge of German is, unfortunately, limited. As I mentioned to Mr. Becker, after my family immigrated to the US in 1956, when I was 3 years old, my parents emphasized that I needed to speak English, as we were now in the US. They did not want me to learn German, as being American was very important to them (...)."
"Dear Mr. Becker,
It was extremely kind of you to contact me so quickly. I was quite surprised to find the German consulate office not only a welcoming representation of my heritage but, also of my devotion to the arts. Foremost, I would like to thank your staff for the extraordinary kindness I was shown. The renewing of my German documents has always been a most dreaded event for me because the staff in Atlanta is efficiently bureaucratic to the point of insulting rudeness. In contrast, your staff was friendly and helpful from the first phone call to the last signature. After living in the States for 50 years, my German is no longer at its best, but that does not change the fact that I am German. Many thanks for all the kindness and understanding."
"Mrs Drahola replies with my request timely and right to the point. And the madam who handles my request is super nice. Really very professional and great staff!"
