comment vorbeikommen - wo? oder wohin?
Is this sentence ungrammatical: "Während dieser Öffnungszeiten können Sie uns sowohl telefonisch problemlos erreichen als auch zu uns vorbeikommen und sich individuell beraten lassen!"? Should it be "bei uns" instead?

comment Bus fahren - usage and grammar
"Ich fahre Bus" means both "I'm a bus driver" and "I'm a passenger on a bus". Right?

@MichaelHärtl I provided the link above. If you follow it, you can see sentences like: "Ein Sechssitzer wird sich gewünscht.", "Acer Laptop in rot wird sich gewünscht =)", "Deshalb wird sich gewünscht, dass dieses Recht aufgeteilt wird." etc.

Do you mean it's bad German to say "Das wurde sich gewünscht"? Because Google finds a lot of examples of different variations of the phrase "sich gewünscht werden". For example here. I realize some of them are "gewünscht haben" which is different, but still

@Emanuel Does "Hier wird sich ausgekotzt" mean "Someone puked here" ? The structure seems strange to me that's why I'm trying to pin down the meaning.

comment Are there some mnemonic rules to use correct articles by gender?
@LarsBeck Nouns are usually assigned to gender without any semantic basis (physical attributes) and are rarely connected with the "real thing". It's called grammatical gender and it relies mostly on morphological or lexical features. This is true for most languages in the world (including all Germanic, Romance, and Slavic languages). Same thing in Russian, "машина" (mashina) -> car, fem. vs. "автомобиль" (avtomobil') -> car, masc.)
