What about skiing? film your friends and show them how bad they do ski or snowboard

Hmmm. I'm white, English and dashingly handsome, and that happens to me too (on the rare occasions I visit the Big City).


Maybe - I dunno - but maybe we non-Swiss give off some kind of message with our body language that puts the locals off?
Happened to me on the bus too.

I dunno why. All I was doing was wearing my England T-shirt, singing Rule Britannia and drinking beer from a keg. Don't know how they knew I was so foreign. Bloody cuckoo-clock loving racist chocolate-making banking scum.

As you can't actually get four stars, I suppose it must be the former

An establishment can only get 3 stars - a chef can get more - assuming he owns/works in multiple establishments and effectively demonstrates he is responsible for the food.

Of course you are Tom, because we would expect nothing less than for you to be a self-taught ski racing champion...
I never said I was a champion, just that I raced.

Waterskiing?

The OP needs to get better/faster at swimming so he can tow the person waterskiing - at the moment that person (the instructor) is sinking and getting wet - which is why the instructor is annoyed.

The other 2 fine athletes swim fast enough to ensure the instructor is kept afloat on the skis.

Honestly - do we have to explain everything????
