Lucky you. Not sure what kind of sheltered life you live, but hate to break it to ya but there's plenty out there. Should be plenty of threads on this forum relating to assaults...

What is there to love about a country in which I :

Pay extremely low taxes and all the rest in charges and supplementals

Can pay for a Coke with a CHF 100 bill, without the cashier batting an eyelash. Need a CHF 100 to pay for that coke

Am restricted to walk and drive on clean streets but not too fast or you lose a month's salary

Never have to smell urine in public places Just boiling poor quality cheese and wine

In 25 years have never been a witness to or a victim of a crime Nor a smile


Am forced to manage most administrative formalities in a few minutes with no or short lines and at CHF 25 per form...

Live 5 minutes from the city and have an apple orchard and sheep farm just across the street from my home Rely on apples from the orchard and mutton from the farm to supplement your diet/income

You should move to Switzerland, then you'll understand the complaints.

I mean I have lots of things to say, but it's at the 13 page mark, I don't think it's worth it. Still... always good go see threads that strike a chord with people. Now how do I unsubscribe before I get my inbox spammed Good luck!

That's hardly fair.
I've heard it’s mostly inhabited by Brits.

Lets use this to get all frustration out with this hole of a country.

I hate every single second i am here,
I hate the people
I hate the system
i hate the police
I hate everything about it.
you get ripped off every single second you are here
yes you earn more but prices do not equate that into buying power

yes you might say, move the hell out, well current situation does not allow for that....so no. If I could I would be long gone and NEVER come back to this HOLE.
OK, now that you have released your frustration I think you should stop complaining. It doesn't lead you out of the HOLE

Instead think for a moment to be right now in Japan or Lybia...would you still HATE being here?

Re: Damn I hate this country

Hawaii has better weather, cheaper cost of living, friendlier people, and the ocean was closer. But CH has faster internet. Few places in the US have 100mbps connections, so I'd say the balance tips in favour of CH. Also, CH has fewer Americans.

Re: Damn I hate this country

I dare you critisizing CH / Bulle !!! lol It's the greatest country/town on earth lol Can you tell I'm Gruyerienne ??

I live in Villars-sur-Glâne, come for dinner !!! lol We're gonna have raclette and for desert meringues avec la double crème de la Gruyère lol After 2.5years, I guess you love melted cheese :-P

You can share your frustration with my Australian husband (not that I have any other husband lol) and critisize CH as much as you want.... I'll just make sure I can't hear your conversation

Do you work in a bar in Bulle ? I can send you loads of Swiss friends if you want hehe
