German KS2 / KS3: Dinge, die wir hassen

Two young German bloggers introduce themselves through a vlog titled “Things We Hate.”

One starts by claiming that they hate it when people do not text them back even though they have clearly read it.

The next explains how she wants to look nice for her friend’s birthday event and so does her makeup but halfway through she always sneezes and it ruins her makeup.

Another thing that they hate is when people have used up all the toilet paper without replacing it and, finally, when people wear the same clothes all the time.
