Re: Restaurants like Funerals!!!

Restaurants, bars, bus, trains, there are all... dead! Unbelievable! I've been here in Zurich for 4years now and can't believe how this city is quiet, snobbish and borring! Look at people on the street: they're isolated in their own life not wiling to chat or joke with anybody. The only moment swiss interact with you is when you listen to your music too loud over you ipod... in the bus! Quick! call the police, we have a very important issue to care of... Ouf....

Your mother tongue is French. Sorry, mon cherie, but you'll never feel at home in Zürich.

I again and again talk with complete strangers here with folks in shops and on transports, .......... and I do NOT listen to people about music

I exchange jokes and remarks with people all over the day

ever considered that it is YOU who is boring, quiet and snobbish ?

Re: Restaurants like Funerals!!!

Wolli, you are missing my point.

Matlat, if you’d look at your reflection in the bus window you wouldn’t think "now this is a self absorbed guy, isolated in his own life, listening to his ipod and looking out the window avoiding any contact with others" etc, you know you are not like that. All the other people are persons too, you don’t know where they are coming from, what they are going to do or what is in their minds whilst sitting on their seats. It seems a bit ignorant to think of them how you described it. Maybe that’s taking it a bit too far and I get how you can feel like you said, but it does not do any good for you or people around you. If you are in this mood too much you’ll find that the next idiot to confirm your negative thoughts about the place is just round the corner.

> 4 years and what ?
<> quiet ? depends on where you are and at what time. This city is neither Athens nor Paris
<> snobbish + boring ? there are quite many localities which are snobbish and/or boring. Just as everywhere. But have you ever considered that YOU are snobbish+boring ?
<> not willing to chat or joke with other people ? Why then do I continuously in Zurich meet people who chat and joke all the time, everywhere and everytime ?
<> Ipod ? Is it possibly YOU who is isolated and not ready to interact ?
<> Call the police ? Or do you need psychiatrist assistance to find a way out of YOUR mental isolation ?
