Get vs. Give


Holschuld: Hol from holen, to get + Schuld meaning debt. Holschuld means get-debt or get-obligation. In Germany if a colleague has information important to your work, you are obligated to request that information.


United States

The American logic is give, not get. If an American colleague has information that is relevant to the work of other colleagues or teams, that person is obligated to provide that information.
