A surly but passive-aggressive individual claiming to be salt of the earth working class and born in east or west Berlin, Germany. Many Berliners are unemployed or retired at 40 due to once much looser welfare rules. Others work driving public transport, behind counters, but particularly at irritating people who don't come from Berlin, or anyone that gets in range actually. A real Berliner has a Berliner accent which is basically a way of speaking without having to open your mouth. The Berliner claim to be "warm people who give lip" (Herz und Schnauze).
"You want me to turn the music down? Why don't you find another place to live instead. I've been living here for 20 years."

"I'd like to go to Spandau please driver."
"Uh, I've got nothing against it."

"I'll serve you as soon as I finish chatting to my friends, but then it will be time for my lunch break. We Berliner aren't slaves, you know."
