When your windscreen is chipped... the UK you can go to "Autoglas" and get it repaired (you remember? this annoying advertisement jingle which is too plain and blunt to be considered as good but still stays in your mind forever...I guess while you are reading this you are just singing it more or less silently). Auto, the german word for car. In Germany the same company is called "Carglas", it uses the same bloody jingle just with a syllable less in it...does that make any sense to anyone? Is it easier to sell new windscreens when the company name sounds somewhat "exotic"? And to who on earth the words car and auto are exotic??? A weird, tiny little difference between the two nations...0:0 for that.
