You must have heard about all those Swiss police officers shooting unarmed black kids? And the Kuh Klux Klan? And the genocide and continued oppression of the Native Alemanns?

Gahh i just typed a ton of "complaints" ,or reasons,why I am leaving early, and I was timed out.. Can people just touch on these:
1.creativity/arts, i think it lacks..
2. Line cutters,we get cut allthe time..
3. People arent reserved, they actually are rude.
4. Children are shushhed all the time, even by strangers
5.Neutrality, not a good thing.. (insert tutu quote here)
6. Racism, its real here.
7. Narrow minded,"it is not possible!" yes it is.
8. Big corporations, bad for the world.. Good money for the swiss
9. Antiquated systems everywhere
10. Punctuality and efficiency... I feel like im in a time warp in this country..

I like a lot, too. But these outweigh my willingness to live like this any longer.
First overseas assignment, then?

5. I dunno... I dont think countries,like the us, should stick their noses in everything but for those who cannot defend themselves i think there is legit reason... I.e, we should have let Hitler do his thing?

Sure, im a troll.
I may not get sarcasm when it´s written, but as a citizen of a country that was once occupied by that madman, you may want to catch up on your history lessons.

And that is not what I initially wrote......................

That's a short list, I think you have been quite reserved.

I have to agree with all these points!!!!

I have to agree with all these points. I think this is a very good summary of the 'little' factors that do have a big impact.
It does depend I suspect on where you live. Some of these issues are far more pronounced in more rural towns.

Isn't that true of anywhere in Europe, in that case?

Live in a little backwater in France, Germany, Spain or the UK and it has its fair share of anally retentive, racist, but mainly bored, busybodies which you wouldn't otherwise notice in a big sprawling city.

Re: Time to leave Switzerland, early...



I see.
The problem is the s in https:// Mark (god bless his soul) has not forethought that the secure version of http will become the quasi standard.

PS: So, he did something? Does that mean all the blacks are in jail because of bad grammar?
