I guess it is a lesson, but I think the Swiss have a different attitudes to laws than other nationalities. It was only paper because I was aware that glass might make a noise.
I think they just are unusual in that they apply the rules consistently. If you make an exception because "paper is quieter than glass", it all gets a bit ridiculous and instead of the odd person falling foul of the single and simple rule, you open it up to loads of people who are confused and interpreting it all in their own sweet way.

Not sure it's a Swiss thing - more of a sensible logical thing.
