I just wonder how you get from ordering eggs to starting WW2?
You can only do that on purpose. The egg seller probably had a good laugh about it afterwards

I think the Swiss prefer to keep a distinction between worklife and leisure. They work hard, and play hard and look forward to leisure time purely as personal / family time.

Planning is thus vital.

I got 10 eggs today for 89 eurocents!
Where from ? How ?

I just wonder how you get from ordering eggs to starting WW2? Did you tell him about your plan to invade Poland or something. Did you have in your hand a piece of paper?

FWIW there is a German in my office who has Prussia's Glory as a ringtone. Does anyone know where I can get "we're going to hang out the washing on the Siegfried line?"

Cheers,
Nick

When I order my eggs directly from the farm, they are brought only on Wednesday. How could I have forgotten that tomorrow is the first August ?
He nearly chopped my head off when I phoned him.... gave me a whole lecture about people trampling on other feeling, and that's how the WW2 was created, tell you the truth I didn't get all of it, it's the real swiss german,
but just because I ordered eggs ... ?!?

Aye, doing business with the Swiss, you really feel like you're walking on eggshells sometimes.

Re: Deeply insulted

I get that same response when I would visit my farmer anywhere near meal times. Nothing WW2, but it's generally cause I didn't understand german at the time as well.

Side note, I have heard WW2 references in the past when a Swiss is complaining in regards to customers and customer service, and I really don't know why or how those discussions led to that.

Maybe there is some deep WW2 issues the Swiss need to get off their chests and how customers are to blame.

Switzerland was closer to joining the Reich than most people like to know, in the Heldberg museum in Herrbrugg there is a astonishingly open expose on just how close.

Re: Deeply insulted

I do know that the Germans tried to run transports across and from what I read the US would bomb those inside of Switzerland mostly near Shauffhausen. I don't know if it's true or not.
