Re: Things English Forum Members like

I'm not Swiss but I am a bit tired of the whinging about every thing Swiss threads (ie.Swiss "bashing"). We have a saying back home - if you don't like it, leave....or just accept it.

People asking advice about things to strangers that should be asked to their doctor, lawyer, accountant....you get the idea...

Re: Things English Forum Members like

My "like list":

1. The social events;
2. The food and restaurants threads;
3. The sticky notes about salaries, taxes, etc. which give me a general idea and then prompt me to go find out more.
4. The social events...oh wait, I already said that!
