Thanks to the nice Aussie lady who helped me

Just like to say thanks to the great Aussie lady who helped me (a couple of weeks ago) at one of those unmanned petrol stations here in Basel. She showed me the process, and not being able to read German she was a great help... even waited while I filled up. The best thing is she was an Aussie - and so am I! Cheers and thanks again, Laz

I really like your post. It shows how nice it is to be helped by people we don't know. We should all feel like helping each other

Boy were you lucky it was a nice Aussie lady behind you and not some Swedish guy. Otherwise we would have had a thread about clumpsy Austrailian tourists in Switzerland.

Re: Thanks to the nice Aussie lady who helped me

Oh i am always thankful for those that jump in and help me when I am trying to fumble through something in German, or of course the ever graceful international sign language... haha. I am always happy to help the english speaking tourists as well. I had one tell me, your english is so good! I just said, thanks!
