What do you think about the swiss? any complaints?

I'm writing a paper on this subject and would appreciate if anyone would like to share their stories, ideas or complaints, whether it is a short description of what you think about the swiss, prejudices or anecdotes. Thank you

I hate to say use the search function but in this case it is good advice.

We had a thread on "Backwards Switzerland" or something similar and it went on for ever.

Re: What do you think about the swiss? any complaints?

I was going to say the same thing. As a writter you need skills in research too, so you should use it.

The forum will give you more than what you ever dreamed of, so look around.

Re: What do you think about the swiss? any complaints?

I think everything that needs to be said has now been said. This site is for English speaking people to find their way around this country, to learn about its odd laws and the thousand 'rules' which not even the Swiss are conscious of - until we break them.

There is enough info on this forum for several theses on the subject. Good luck.
