I sent an email to the newbie saying I'm not keen on going. Let's see what he replies. I shall keep you all updated!

Yeah man well it's not the lunch's fault and it's not your fault. It's the stupid ba%$ch's fault. Now go give her a piece of your mind.
It's situations like this which make me want to be self-employed

Re: Sometimes I really hate people :mad:

On a far too constructive note: Most Chinese restaurants are more than happy to offer a la carte instead of the buffet. Any half-decent menu would have some vegetarian options and they shouldn't be 25CHfs.

P.S: Is the newby the type of person that might coincidentally google things on life in Switzerland for newcomers? Just saying...

Re: Sometimes I really hate people :mad:

I'd appreciate if you wouldn't call the lady a bitch, as it is disrespectful towards a person whom you don't know. Simply because she did something unpleasant, irrational towards Porsch, doesn't mean that we have to insult her.

Re: Sometimes I really hate people :mad:

I am not going to troll your post Porsch.

The one with a problem is that girl. She made a ''Doodle'' (we learn somethin' everyday) and she didn't put any restaurant choices. At the end, when everybody agreed, she comes up with a place and a price without asking opinion on THAT matter.

Now, if you don't want to go for whatever the reason, it is your own business. She has no rights to scream at you nor giving you an attitude and making you pay by taking care of her guy.

Tell her to F**k off and that's the end of it.

Now go on that website and order those balls!

Oooh, thanks for the new word!


Porsch, explain to the "newbie" that you'd decided against going, explain as much as you like and perhaps offer him the opportunity to go with you to lunch someplace more to your liking.

Who knows, maybe 25chf is a bit steep for him for lunch as well and he'd appreciate having a different option.

Then the visiting guy comes in the office and she says to hi, 'The lunch is tomorrow and porsch1909 (yes that's my real name...my parents had a sick sense of humor) will go with you.
Best reaction would be to take him to the chinese buffet for lunch

Thanks Peg A

That's exactly what I did. I explained the whole sorry situation to him in an email and said if he wants to still go I can introduce him to the other people that are going so that he doesn't feel left out.

Just to confirm that the girl who everyone is calling a bitch wasn't the one who was organizing this

You can run but you cannot hide.

It seems to me that the person who sent the doodle out in the frost place should be the one who takes the student out to eat. Yes?

Well he sent an email around to some people and said to forward it to anyone else he missed out.

So this broad forwarded it to the newb.

There will be another 3 or 4 people there. I'm not sure why this newb needs me to hold his hand.

Re: Sometimes I really hate people :mad:

Clearly inform her that there was a misunderstanding and that she should not be disrespectful.
You're not obliged to go at all. On the other hand sometimes it's better to go with the flow if it helps create a peaceful environment.
Even if this means calling the restaurant ahead of time to ask whether it's possible to have a vegetarian dish.

Re: Sometimes I really hate people :mad:

2 people saw the joke, 1 groaned.. - saw the sarcasm sign by any chance?

Just messing porsch, just messing, friendly banter only remember?

I am self employed since 2007 and i know its not a laugh, regardless of it we all need to joke around about it, that or start crying, not sure what i am closer too right now. (regarding the business ,not you,don't flatter yourself)

No big issues with my company but like everyone its hard to find customers, and be competive compared to the bigger players on the market who are backed up by a fat cat company with loads of money.

I am backed up by my own wallet and hopes, yet 4 years later i am still on the market, many who said i wouldn't make it the first year.

My appologies if i have offended anyone that can't take a "funny " remark, it will never happen again - Offending message is removed
