Re: Welcome to Switzerland

Please remain polite. If you want to come to my country then you will need to demonstrate a social aptitude. I recommend that you maintain a network of contacts who can act as references in case of federal investigation.

You may be seeking asylum. In this case, avoid criminality. Learn to respect tradition.

Re: Welcome to Switzerland

It's not "your" country.

As a owner of legal permit, I have rights and obligations (such as respecting the law), but I have none regarding complying with any little idiot who actually have the citizenship.

So thanks for your wonderful advice, but keep them for yourself.

As for demonstrating "social aptitude" I guess you should take the point yourself.


Salutations, Peasant hard.

Well the tradition around here is that an introduction is to tell us a little bit about you, not just to start telling us things we already know. It's not as if most of us, or the EF itself, is exactly new around here.

So are you here to do anything other than offer obvious unasked advice?

Apparently not, because there are multitudes without that social aptitude, like you.

Re: Welcome to Switzerland

As guests you have a lot to learn but our hospitality here is famous and you will enjoy much kindness despite you varied and at times quite incompatible cultural traits.

What I shall offer you is the perspective and wisdom of the "Einheimishe" and with this knowledge you shall have more chance of prosperity if we select you for residency in our land.

So this "wisdom of the Einheimische" is that you are on top of the pyramid? B... bu... but.... you're a dork!

Re: Welcome to Switzerland

As aspiring applicants, it is indeed your good fortune to have advice from myself.

An accident of birth is not sufficient to climb to the top of the pyramid. Even here in utopian Switzerland, success requires hard work and perseverance.

Your ambition to join us is commendable.

Good luck!
