They speak foreign their too - but it sounded different to the French they spoke in Germany - so I have to conclude they spoke German.

Re: Urgent buying something at the kiosk asap

Please update, DB. Did you, indeed, return for your Mars bar? If so, was there a post-it note affixed to said bar?

If the bar was gone, did you check the lost and found at the police station? Did they charge you a finder's fee to hand over your wayward bar?

Re: Urgent buying something at the kiosk asap

This remembers me on my Grandpop, who once in 1949 was a carpenter at the house of a unknown poem writer from the land off the coast from Mesopotamia. His Dad was also a unknown poem writer from Mesopotamia. His Grandpop did arrive in Switzerland to start a new life away from the opression of poem writers before he also.

So it did happen that I and my brother had to pick up some woods and take them to my Grandmom and Grandpop to light the cooking stove in the kitchen.

Grandpop told brother and me we must go and pick up some wood for the poem writer also.
Brother asked why and Grandpop said if you pick up some wood for the poem writer there will be a surprise that you will get after.

We did spend three afternoons and picked up wood to give the poem writer, he was of course very glad.

For brother and me, there was no chocolate.
