Talk about opinionated consultant! Do you refer people who are looking for a personal trainer to S&M clubs?

I've seen private trainers that have the right mind set to have a second job in SM clubs for sure...

Whatever floats your boat, but this is slightly too much information.

Haha, it's especially funny since you cut up my post and completely misrepresented it! But hey, when we make borderline homophobic associations, we hide it best we can, I guess.

Why am I homophobic? I suggested either strip club OR gay bar when you asked for entertainment. You chose to discuss the gay bar... I really don't care what floats your boat, I'm only an opinionated consultant ready to help.

P.S - I even got a "Coop has better quality" when I asked about a Migros near to my school.
don't take it as unsolicited advice, but sarcasm; or as Gabriel Vetter's (fictional) grandma put it in his slam poetry standup act: "at 10 years old, coop children have their first imac, whereas at 25 years old, at best, migros children have their first BigMac. ...and who laughs at this, is a darn coop child, my grandma said".

Maybe this is why they're all so serious. Still trying to figure out jokes they hear 20 years ago.

"thank you for taking all the swiss companies and relocating them and related jobs to the US so that they are taxed here instead and we can live a luxurious lifestyle based on corporate tax evasion."?
You made my day
