No.
We are both "foreigners", we all react the same*.

*everyone should know that, all foreigners react the same way, which is different than the "locals" way of reacting.
you see, that's your problem on this forum, you use waaay too much irony. Some artists don't get it I fully believe....

That's what "groans" are made for. I don't mind collecting them when someone don't get it.

Also I don't have problems. I have opinions. (and I don't like when someone is wrong, on the internet )

So we reacted in a different way? Even though we are both "foreigners"?

You know, on the EF its often far more entertaining to be wrong.

You should try it sometimes

But let's get back to the argument about playing music loudly while eating free samples of brown sugar while living in a skyscraper, or whatever it was that we were arguing about.

Really you're not even funny, you're so boring and uninteresting. You're not worth anyone's time, seriously

Yes, it still does not change the fact that you were wrong.

But thanks for the compliment!

Re: Harassment against a foreigner at Globus Bellieve Store over sampling free bread

Back on topic, and I will be blunt.

OP, sorry to hear of your bad experience. You already got some good advice (Grumpy, Tom, etc.) lost in the middle of all this "I have a big ego", BS back and forth posting: we are not in the US anymore, where you sue even your dog. In Switzerland, I believe your best and most effective course of action is a factual, detailed, and cool (and I repeat: cool) complaint to the CEO and top people via registered letter, followed by email. There is a post somewhere around the forum where someone complained and they received a written apology plus goodies. It is bad marketing for a store to have unhappy customers, more so in times of economic distress when purses are tight, and I am sure that they understand this concept even here where competition is relatively small. I will say don't expect the "red carpet" treatment and bow-down apologies that you'd receive in the US for the same - ain't gonna happen here, sadly most (not all) customer service is nothing to write home about. Regarding the lawyer, I think it's wasted money in this case, but it is your money and you do what you think it's best with it.

Now regarding the racism portion: I will agree that, as someone said, we all react differently to this kind of unexpected event. Ideally, one would keep cool and demand explanations, but I can understand that one could also "lose it" in the spur of the moment. Mind you, this can happen to foreigners and locals alike - for example, I am a foreigner, and in that situation I would be perfectly calm and discuss/demand answers, even in very broken German, and would refuse to go anywhere until I got those explanations, or the police showed up. But if for example someone touched me or pulled my arm, etc. I would instantly freak out and start screaming at them.

Anyway, your claim about racism I believe is totally out of place, and I will go even further - there is a lot of racism in the world and it is nasty, just as there are a lot of idiotic people. But people who, for everything that happens to them in life, pull out every single time the racism card, pi$$ me off at the n-th power.

Wow! I have never known a piece of bread to get so much mileage.
Oh. I forgot, it was two pieces. That explains it then.
