What reaction did you expect from Swiss forum members?


I didnt bitch I vented, ive let out 1 groan in this whole story.

I expect nothing from anyone, but I dont expect you to tell me to get the f out. or that you invited me here etc etc.

It is an English forum, everyone is welcome, also Swiss people who speak english,afteral they can help us best as they know first hand.

Many issues were solved with help of our Swiss members, so telling them this site is not for them doesn't feel right..

I do understand that. of course it can be very frustrating to hear those comments about your own country and culture. It is the reason I am not joining an expat forum in my country. Because they are probably bitching about my country, with right or not. But this isn't my problem, I am from that country and I can understand why they nedd to vent it out. I have been living for 8 years in different countries now, I know how it is...

As much as I understand them to be upset to hear us talking like this, I can't get the why they stick around and bitch on us to do what we are allowed to do in this forum in a specific section. As he told us, if we don't like it here, we should off. Same thing apply to him on this forum...

Do you like everything about Switzerland?

No, I'd be lying if I said so. And I most definitely don't have a problem with others criticizing aspects of living here. What prompted my reaction is the OP's saying that he hates everything about this place, including all Swiss.

Then I suggest you improve your diction cause you said:

I am half-Swiss, my mother in law is American
And I am not the only one who "misunderstood you"

Re: Damn I hate this country
 
As per my Intro about a year ago,

Back in the 80's, my parents did the " nasties " in Switzerland , 9 months later i was born..does that make me half Swiss being conceived here?

Dawiz, you could at least accept that Anthony doesn't like it, but there is no reason for calling names and all that.

And we don't all hate Switzerland, ask Cailler chocolate :)

Neither did I say I invited you here, nor did I say I wanted all foreigners to get out. I merely stated that those who can't stand breathing the air here should leave - because there's no point in their staying here any longer.

He said he hates "the people", and clearly he didn't mean every man, woman, child and new born baby. You're the only one in the thread who thought he did. He said "the people" in a commonly used general term for the population of a country.

never said I hate all Swiss, I certainly do not. BUt i like to generalize.....as we mostly do when talking bout populations.

ALSO if you look at my location....apparently the Gruyerien are the worst of the worst. and the once I know reaLLY are. so that prob has lots to do with it...
