yeah, let's not read what others think about us. It's not our business if our guests think we're all a**holes.

Perhaps our immigration laws aren't tough enough, after all.

To the OP and all the others who think life and the people here are s**t:

PACK THE F**K UP AND LEAVE.

I've never understood why a Swiss person would join this forum. At home, I would never join a French forum. The EF is a place for foreigners living in Switzerland to find resources, get advice on life here, share tips and from time to time complain and vent their frustrations. It's not about you or for you to take personally. It's about the OP and what he's experiencing and it's normal to hit a point of utter dismay and declare you hate the place and want to leave and never come back when you're living abroad. This is a safe and constructive place to do so and afterward a person typically feels better and can get on with things! :)

I agree - but doing so on a public forum where lots of Swiss read your comments might not be the best idea.

If anything, we're the hired help. We turned this fine land from a proto-industrial peasant economy into .... a proto-industrial peasant economy with Zurich dunked in the middle. Anyway, haven't you got a boiling bucket of cheese and wine to eat? Bye bye.

I know you wouldn't join a Belgian forum but if someone was to start up a thread here on how crap your native Country is, what would you do/say?

I have some feelings for what we call " home " but after 3 days i had enough and i want to get back here..

Guests? WTF.

I'm EU, which means that you have as much right to work in EU and I have here. I've lived here 11+ years, earn above average, pay more taxes and do a job that if not done here would be done abroad. Therefore I actually contribute to CH society in one form or another.

However, unlike you, I'm not naive enough to think that this is utopia. That said, while I very much like my life here, I can understand that not all do. I also don't like everything 100%, but for me I like much more than I dislike.

- Because I lived in the US for a long time and like to talk with people coming from English-speaking countries
- because I feel at home in a multi-cultural environment
- because I'm actually eager to learn what others think about us
- because I'm only half-Swiss, my mother-in-law is American
- because I want to practice my English
- because I want to give others advice in their quest to integrate here

do I have to go on?

well there is not much good to say about it right......:msntongue:
I like it there but I would never move back ....
This venting is really helping though and I must admit I am very suprised at the people that have the same sentiment or went through the same thing....I guess it really is just a stage ( I hope)

And you think that abusing someone who is having a bad day and advising him to get the **** out of your country is helping his quest to integrate? :confused:

I don't have a "less conservative" side.

Presumptuous, much? :rolleyes:
