I am a huge risk-taker; I even tear packages in other places instead of the dotted line where it says "Tear Here"
Hum ... if Assassin thanked you for that he probably could read between the lines. I can't and I won't nah!!!

Changing the "Nür" to "Not" and a couple of other minor changes with a magic marker would make it work well in English too.
You mean specifically excluding Herr Kuntz and all his like-named relatives?

"Not for clients" not sure that's what he wants
Try thinking about other small changes to 'kunden'.

Re: Same ol swiss bs

Don't know if it works in CH, but you could contract with a tow company to monitor the parking. They make their money on impound fees and tow fees, so I don't think they'd charge you anything.

In any case, she's wrong. I've seen a lot of this in the US, so its not just a Swiss thing. Stick to your position, have her towed, tell her boss. If she wants to come into your shop and rant & rave at you, tell her you've called the authorities, and watch her "make like a tree and get outta here."

You'd get the same crap pretty much anywhere - it isn't country specific. It's like saying all Audi drivers are cocks - they're not - nor do all cocks drive Audis (many drive Porsches) - but you remember a number of Audis being driven badly....
Off topic though, but I thought it was the Volvo drivers who drove badly...no, I don't drive an Audi (or Porsche, but would love to...)

Depends on where you are from - BMWs used to be really bag, as did Mercs (for owning the road) - Volvos would make manouvres and not worry about hitting things. Women driving SUVs can't see over the steering wheel etc etc etc

Not forgetting Hondas that are driven at half the speed limit by people who should have given up their licences 20 years ago - but still insist they are safe drivers - and young people just rush everywhere

Just put a broken match stick in her door lock. Then grin at her but deny everything.

Door lock? As it one of them holes for a key? It's been a while since you opened a car door hasn't it?

Re: Same ol swiss bs

She should try that in London. I've known people to have their tires slashed for accidentally using the wrong parking spot in a residential car park.
