Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

The tribunal has decided that the following steps are going to be realized, as a response to the inappropriate attitude from swiss community:

1. Will never go to Coop/Migros again. I'm tired of that old bags and their rubbish attitude. Now I only buy in Lidl, where no Swiss foot has ever stepped in.

2. I'll fu#k off my swiss boss and swiss coworkers. I'll work for an auslander company instead.

3. Will never go to swiss clubs again.No point, waste of time,waste of money, waste of liver. I'm invisible to guys, let alone to women. Yesterday some girl hardly pushed me away when passing by that I almost fell on the floor, but what I can do - Push her back, ignite a fight with locals, kick few of them and then get kicked out of the club? No thanks. And a DJ kept staring in me and finally stopped as I showed him a middle finger. A DJ was staring in me, are you fkin serious??Only in switzerland.

4. May look for work near border, live in germany and run the commute game.

5. Will stop buying swiss products. Food is shit anyways. This will be easy as all swiss-made products have that stupid sticker with red cross on it, which is just screaming 'Don't buy this shit, don't buy this shit!'. That pretentious sticker - it's like taking a dump, put 'scwheize qualiatet' sticker on and boom, it's already the best stuff on the market! It's almost as horrible as that 'BIO' sticker, which is the latest marketing invention in switzerland - well, that is not gonna work on me, buddies! A vine will be from france, a delicious vodka from russia, a beer from czech republic, meat from germany and pasta from italy. And I'll bake my own bread, using polish flower even if I'll have to go in Poland on foot to buy it there. A cheese, if it's not from holand, I don't even negotiate...why would I pay 10 francks for a swiss cheese which smells like feet, is hard like a brick and tastes like rubber?

6. I'll buy that spray with the arome of dump and will secretly release it on anybody that jumps over me in a line

7. Will use more body language to respond to staring (read: middle finger signals)

8. Will stop being nice with locals. I give gold and receive rubbish, what's the point?

9. Will enrich my swiss german by learning how to give juicy compliments.

10. Will wear a T-shirt with front sign: "If you'not auslander, read my back'. Back sign: 'f**k you!'

11. Will equip myself with water gun to use against staring wirdos

12. Will cancel any business with non-auslander

13. Will require auslander offical when doing about anything in public service.

14. Will cut out that 'auslanderausweis' and replace it with 'work permit'.

And you think anyone will be impressed by that, interested in that and change their behaviour?
But please, go ahead and take all steps necessary. I am sure people will love you for it

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

I have read all this thread and the main thing I got from it is that the OP's user name is an anagram of John Travolta.

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

I think, the tribunal suggests only step no. 7. At all times. You can duck tape it permanently.

Problem solved.

I think you are hilarious (Especially the bit about shopping in Lidl) and although to some you might sound pessimistic, you have very valid points. You are no more a troll than the people who tell you to go back to your country. In me, you have an advocate

Not really. The rep/bobbies are subjectively given and obviously many EFers agree with the OP - fully or to some extent. I would hate to live in a world where everyone agrees with each other. The OP, like the rest of us, is entitled to think whatever he likes.

Google backs you up on that one (although in essence it's wrong):

Was curious about the OPs gender, now resolved, because I can honestly admit that I do recognise a certain circle of Russians - especially those with big villas on the Gold Coast in Zürich - by how they look / present themselves - but mostly only amongst the women .

I empathise with your situation, @JohltaVontra. Swiss people are more miserable than the ordinary. I am also staying for the CHF but will certainly leave in three years.

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

Does anyone else find it ironic that someone from one of the most racist, prejudiced, undemocratic and most deeply unpopular countries on Earth is complaining about the same thing in a country known for being, if not the friendliest, one of the safest, most democratic and tolerant countries on Earth?

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

I'll just step in here and say: every problem you've raised is because you're ugly. Nothing to do with the Swiss, it's just the fact that you look like a cross between a baboon's backside and a warthog.

For us beautiful people, Switzerland has never been a problem. Tough luck, pal. I'd say I feel for ya, but... I don't.
