Re: people shaking their heads

I know, I cannot drive, I cannot park my car, and in general when I'm driving I am very clumsy. I easily panic, too.
But is it necessary to shake heads and look at me with such contempt everytime I do something wrong? Even people not directly involved in my awkward manoeuvres feel the need to show their disappointment by looking at me and shaking their heads.
Is it happening only to me or this "shaking the head" habit is typically Swiss?
I find it so unpleasant!
ha ha sadly you are not alone. I think it is something of a national pastime. I posted once about the very same thing when I took a little too long reversing out of a space at Aldi and was subjected to a very severe case that lasted for a good 5 minutes or so, and was also accompanied by exaggerated eye rolling!
