I smell a fish
Dude.. I was born in mexico. My family left when I was 3. The embassy will only help someone who has some kind of connection to mexico, I.e, is registered or has credit history or bank accounts or family or work history. Because they pay for your airline ticket and they need some sort of collateral to know u will pay them back.

So, wash your ass if you are smeelling fish

Like someone said, also in case your story isn't true, it's well invented ...



You do realize that most of the people answering here are foreigners i.e. non-Swiss, given that you are posting in an expat forum, don't you?


Guess how much the Swiss love those people ...
Ahhh touché. .. My bad.
That was a stupid thing to say on my behalf.
I have received nothing but love from the swiss people.. I guess thats why I continue here.

Re: The next step?

I appreciate that Switzerland can be a frustrating place for a lot of people from oversees. The culture is quite particular. But in your situation, there is simply no way you will be able to survive for long in Switzerland. No one will pay an illegal immigrant more than CHF 20 per hour at the most (this, I imagine, is already very generous). Given recent news stories, illegally working in Greece (e.g. on a farm) is a very unpleasant and possibly dangerous line of work. For your own sanity and any hope of future life satisfaction, you should really consider leaving Europe.

My plan is to think twice before attempting to tell a short version of my life on the internet with hopes of receiving some solid advice.. Or at least not just click on googles first result when searching

Second, I plan to think things very thoroughly and take my emotions a bit away. You see, your advice
Is quite real and easy. Go to the police station. Show my passport. Get deported. Done.

However, the side of me that has tried to live by society's rules continues to be crushed daily. Not only by authority but also at times through the likes of stupid comments like the ones we have seen here. People saying I should do this and do that because everyone else has to. I can honestly say, you. I will do it my way, which ever way I please.
And so, to make a long comment short, if I cannot make a 'legal' contribution to this swiss society, I can answer the call of lesser known, more lucrative businesses. Where people ONLY pay cash for the product they wish to purchase.

So I guess my plan is simple. Give a and try to be accepted by people who are living "acceptably" with residence permits, driver's license and apartment leases. Or not give a and be king of the hill, drive a porsche with no license, and be hated by everyone who has to work 70 hours a week and can only express their true sentiment on the english forum...

Friends, money is floating in the air in switzerland. Yesterday I had 3 euros. Today I have more. But what is important here is not the money or the situation, its the sound of the people.
The sound of love.
The sound of dreams.

More and more I meet people reflecting the same attitudes I see on this forum. People with no dreams, no imagination. Just working. Escaping on the weekend to a bar. Or skiing.
Shit. Its the saddest irony. The richest people in the world with the poorest attitudes. So I see why my brother Charlie Chaplin is celebrated. He is truly one in a million. How many swiss people you see out in the world celebrating life and promoting the young generations success?

But don't let me rant about the negativity I see. Thats not the point.

The point is; I'm sure I can contribute to this society in this way, raising the consciousness of a society that believes it is the best in the world, the richest in the world, but does not know an authentic smile or a true heart. Swiss people are people of the mind, always planning, always calculating.. This is the root of unhappiness. ..

So how will I contribute? Respond to the negativity by providing the suits with their weekend 'escape' and then spending that money on clothes and food and bullshit? Or really try to get a real job and be treated less than human?
Well like I said.. let me put my emotions aside for just a bit.

I have a dream. And my plan is to accept the next step that will take me there. Whatever that may be
I think I'm going to throw up... you really do talk a load of absolute sh**. In fact, you are 100% ridiculous, a fantasist, using this forum as an outlet to express your frustration at your situation and yet having no concept of how utterly ludicrous you sound. There is nothing about your situation that warrants sympathy, and there is nothing about the your character that I would even flag as admirable or even likeable. You have invented a set of notions about the Swiss people and the expats here to fuel your fantasies and to compensate for how you miserable you probably feel when you really sit down and think about your situation and the choices you have made. To be fair, I'd be miserable too. It's probably why you are reacting so strongly to criticism.

Listen. I've been nothing but nice to you…… but you mental, you know that right? I don't like all of the rules either, but society has rules for a reason. If we all did exactly as we pleased there would be chaos.

Anyway… you have two options. Get yourself deported, or continue to live illegally which means, no proper job or home or health care etc etc. Your choice.

Blah blah blahhhh

In regards to mind and vision. I seem sane, to myself, in the mirror.
In regards to personality, I have yet to meet someone who openly dislikes me. Though I know some may be jealous unreasonably. But that's not my concern.


More blah blah blahhhhh
I must be jealous, because I don't like you.

At all.

It's interesting, too, that they all speak with the same voice. Sometimes they're Mexican, sometimes American, sometimes South African, or whatever - but they're always "smarter than anyone I know", they always think rules are for fools and they always get an entertaining response.

I don't mind, to be honest. They create an interesting diversion. I might even respond seriously now and then. But they're no more real than any of my sockpuppet accounts.

Re: The next step?

Lol, sorry OP, but you're full of shit. I bet you've got a US passport located somewhere at the bottom of your rucksack probably with a wad of notes in there too.

Here's an idea for you, why don't you go and join the Red Cross? Then you can go to West Africa and help a bunch of Ebola patients. I'm sure sure they'd really appreciate the amount of love and good vibes you have to offer. Hey, you may even get your garden.

Incredible then that Switzerland is time and again seen to be one of the happiest countries in the world. Perhaps they're just pretending.

Re: The next step?

If you get deported, it will probably be back to Austria, where you came from. So why not hitch hike back to Vienna, and hang around the Syrian embassy. They need someone to love.

Island monkey... I said thanks for the good advice. If u think I am mental, thats cool too.
As for 'Richdog' and the other idiots riding his jock; how stupid are u really? Did I ask for your sympathy or anything else from you? Quite frankly, who is more delusional, the one telling the story or the one responding as if someone cares for his opinion. Dude, your replies are quite stupid actually, having nothing to do with any of the original questions or ideas.

Re: The next step?

Dude. Man I hear ya. These squares just don't know what it is to let the sun beat down upon thy face, with stars to fill thy dream.

You and me bro! I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been. And in my travels, to sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen. Love and listen to the talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed.

F yeah! Don't let the man get you down. Fight the power.

Basic internet psychology dictates that if you didn't care about other peoples opinions you wouldn't even be posting your pathetic story on a public forum and then continually responding to comments. Your aim was to get attention and sympathy, and then you very quickly threw your toys out of the pram when you didn't get it.

The thread certainly has some (unintentional) entertainment value though, so I guess we can thank you for that!
