Re: A crappy day and possible racism

One day I walked towards the building in a small village near Basel, where I had my business for over 25 years. When I passed a teen boy, he spit out demonstratively in front of me.
At 6'3" I could have wiped the ground with him but instead inhaled and did the same in good boot camp manner.
Later I learned from a neighbour, that the boy's father went bankrupt in the shop, that this lousy Kraut bought.
Ipso facto: Don't think the lady had any valid reasons to feel insulted at every turn on a stressful day.
I did then and shrugged it off--go fly a kite kid!
38 yrs in love with my Swiss Lady and 12 yrs with my Swiss Goldie Nana. Right on, nothing matters except......

LOL, none of the above. Try again if there's anything left upstairs, know what I means?

You do realise that anything north of Basel is considered a Schwob, don't you?

Re: A crappy day and possible racism

Hallo Dougal's Breakslow
Ich entschuldige mich und beuge mein Haupt in Demut!
Hier meine Uebersetzung für Sie., alle polyglotten Westschweizer und den restlichen Krauts in Namibia.
"Ich hoffe, dass Dein Name nicht Programm ist, aber es ist gleichwohl schön, dass ich Dich kennenlernen darf.
Mit Himmelsrichtungen kenne ich mich nicht so gut aus, denn ich fahre immer Navi.
War mir eine Freude."

"Hey man what u be in de ........ 'hood, know what a mean? Look like ur name be shiit, know what a mean man but you ok. Dunno notting from them .........what de hell ..........directions! Always be driving with .........navi.
Hey bro' u be good, know what a mean,.......... get outta here"
End of translation.......dishwasher!

Unless one lives in Ticino, then anything north of Airolo counts.

Including Geneva.

North of the alps is, umm, north. We don't care about the details.

It's ok. You can just call us "Europe".

Which, alas, Switzerland is not a part of.

And thankfully NOT!

Anyway, the correct term is "Greater Germany".

The German translation made more sense to me! Can't get urban jungle or text jargon, I belong to the 19th century!

Unless Switzerland has created a continent all of its own I think you'll find we are part of Europe.
