I must say I did not feel very good about generalizing about Swiss men given I did not know that many. I am actually saddened to be right about this.
Just realize that not everybody here is a Swiss man? Lots and lots of foreigners male and females here

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

I don't like to reveal the contents of private messages... but everyone who is defending the OP for his sincerity and depth of emotion is cracking me up and probably the OP too.

Just sayin', like.

To be fair, she has made several helpful and informative posts over the years.

This thread seems to be an aberration, which further supports the notion that she is unhappy at the moment.

I've been a twat on the forum when I've been in a bad mood. I'm often a twat on the forum when I'm in a good mood, too. It doesn't seem to have done me any harm.

I gave Kedi some green rep yesterday, and I'd suggest that others do the same in the spirit of "no harm done". Nothing wrong with hurling abuse at her at the same time, though, in the good old spirit of EF.

Sorry DB I can't ,I only made a bauschlosser lehre in Switzerland

The green blobs are in response to the fact that Kedi has earned a load of red blobs despite being mostly harmless. She has kept her nonsense and shitstirring to one thread and hasn't - as far as I'm aware - done much of this kind of thing before.

As I said, I see no reason to stop responding on this thread, but it seems a bit unfair to give a longer lasting punishment for the sake of two days' worth of being an arsehole.
I hear ya and I would agree with ya if she was funny. Op is kinda funny! She isn't. Maybe it has something to do with all the insults she served right and left..

Let's do a group hug.

OK. I've had my tea (a balti, for the detail orientated) and have my G&T at the ready. What did I miss?

A kind of curry cooked in a big pot, invented by Pakistanis in Birmingham.

Another reason I voted for Brexit.

Do we have to? It's always such a struggle to put my Fugu costume on, and I'm out of the gas bottles for inflating it.

People are Very Mean and the OP has been dreadfully Misunderstood and Misinterpreted.

I did a mime too but I think it got lost in the aether. It was seminal. I should win an award... I also do a one-woman Romeo and Juliet in around 40 minutes.

Put it on 40 per page and the page count shrinks....
I can sometimes appreciate it when people get in touch with their raw feelings and express it. It can be a refreshing change of pace in a plasticised world.

@Kedi, carry on! By all means, be yourself. Embrace your inner twat if you must. I won't judge you. Its better than what is on TV.
