Well why the hell else does one have contact with Landsleute (countrymen) im Ausland (abroad) if not to get embarrassed by them? Grow up already, Germans. That’s what they’re there for (or that’s what you’re there for, for that matter). That’s their job.
Yet another recent poll has indicated that Germans are ashamed of German behavior when confronted with it abroad (45 %!). This isn’t really news though, is it? If they could just be ashamed of German behavior when confronted with it at home, now there they could finally start making a little progress, maybe.
