Re: What a totally selfish female person!

Always best to end relationships in a calm and friendly manner, you'll never know when you're going to meet again.

"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". And she really wanted that bike in the separation you know ....

If she is a Suissesse, that is all there is to know. Most either have over inflated egos or are actually that ignorant.

Re: What a totally selfish female person!

I see they've changed the title of the thread.

I liked it better when you called a spade a spade. It seems that a "bitch" became a "female person".

Somehow, it doesn't have the same ring to it .

Re: What a totally selfish female person!

Similar thing happened to me 2 weeks ago in Geneva. Woman in fancy 4x4 drives round and blocks me as I am about to drive off. I politely ask (in French) to wait 3 seconds, she ignores me. I ask again what sort of education if any she has received, and she babbles in English that she cannot understand me, so I switch to English, which shocked her, but she still never moved and I had to wait till she paid for a further 6 minutes. Like you, I was so stunned I did not know what to do...it's only afterwards that sweet revenge thoughts such as peeing in her petrol tank etc come to your mind!

The scene:
Aegerital Garage in Unterageri. I'd just ridden into the left lane to fill up the motorbike. I parked nice and close to pump to make it easy. Went in, paid for it, everything normal so far.

Came out, and behold the scene. A woman in a fiesta has parked *parallel* to me. She's so close, I can't even mount the bike from the left. I can't get in via the right due to the pump. And to top it all, she's got the pump literally draped over my bike, and she's filling her car.

I use hand signals to communicate "WTF are you doing? Can I get onto my bike please???"

To which she responds - also in body English - "Please wait until I fill up". And not just that...when shes finished, she barges past me to reseat the pump, then incredulously, she actually makes me wait until she's gone in and paid! Then makes me wait yet further - totally blanking me in the process - while she gets in and drives off! No apology...no acknowledgement....

I mean...WTF???? Is this normal???

Who renamed the thread, and why with such an idiotic title?

Tom
Seems as if the EF nanny patrol is out in force again.
At least change it to something that doesn't sound as if it was uttered by a 4 year-old.

Oh dear Olygirl, what a chip you have on your shoulder. I have not met any pleasant, educated Swiss. The most friendly are those from outside the EU who work here.

Now isn't that the attitude to make friends and integrate well, I say.

This must have been the most traumatic event that can happen to a man.
You are driving around with a penis on two wheels and get completely ignored by a woman in a Ford Fiesta (not even a Cayenne...).
That must hurt

You weren't driving a fancy 4x4 round Geneva a few weeks ago, by any chance, filling up at my local petrol station?
