I only went away for a week! And I still made one or two posts. I've been busy going round at night putting "please don't do that again" notes randomly on people's post boxes.
Please don't do that again.

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

In other earth shattering news Frau Meier washes white socks at 30 degrees and Herr Schmid at 46 seems to be having too much fun filling out last week's crossword puzzle using a blunt pencil.

We have to pause this soap opera for messages from your local station.....

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

Flash Bulletin:

A Zürcher, going for a stroll in quintessential Kanton Schwyz, did not say "Grüezi" to other people on the path.

May his soul rot in hell.

Someone has just stuck a notice on my post box saying "Tu das nicht Wieder, bitte"! I was annoyed, typed it into google translate, and am now having a good laugh. I deserved that

A neighbour assumed you forgot your washing powder?
Do you need to open a thread for it?
Clearly, yes...

I forgot to mention it was an empty box. She assumed I threw away my trash inappropriately.
This is serious...

I'm already aware of that But it's better than mine, and I still had to take the post-it note off the box, bring it into work, and type it into Google Translate before I got the joke. So she still wins!

PS It's "neighbour's".

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

On the rare occasions that I have gotten notes, I have photocopied them, and then posted the copies at the entrance. Copy disappears, I post another.

No more notes in 18+ years!

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

I'm feeling left out here, never had a note. Had a few "head to head's" , always come away thinking "what was all that about?"

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

I guess that is their way here to socialize, just show you are a good citizen and write your own complain letter.

lol thank you everyone. I feel better now.

This past Saturday, I came down to do laundry and noticed a huge empty box of detergent powder next to the small trashcan in the washroom. I minded my own business. When I came back to get my clothes from the dryer, I saw that box inside my laundry basket, I took it out and put it back next to the trashcan.

When I came home today, the box was in front of my door with a note from the hauswart. I called her and told her the box wasn't mine. I use a different brand and I'm living alone, I don't need to use a HUGE box of detergent. She said Mrs. Hunziker said it was mine. Ummm...?? I told her I was the only one doing laundry that day and Mrs. Hunziker automatically assumed it was mine. She never saw me with that box.

UGHHHH Should I kidnap her dog too? Yes, no, maybe so?
Swiss logic eludes me.
  1. Swiss Person A sees Foreigner B.
  2. Foreigner B is standing near Innocuous Item C on a public street.
  3. Item C is a precursor for Explosive D.
  4. Therefore C belongs to B, and B must be planning to make D, and must therefore be a terrorist.
  5. Swiss Person A immediately puts down her binoculars, drops the shades, and calls the Police.

What should I do to my neighbor who called the house ward and made false accusations about me? I did speak to the house ward and cleared the complaint. But I'm also very tempted to sprinkle smelly fish sauce on my neighbor's door. just a thought.
Keep your enemies closer.
Invite your neighbour over for a friendly chat and serve plenty of alcohol.
I'm sure after that there will be no false accusations what so ever.
