Re: Do Swiss people have small wallets or do I just have too much money?

You can't have a girlfriend/wife if you have money left in your wallet

Yes of course this is Switzerland, no such thing as fakes.

And they ARE accepted in many places, trouble is what do you do with the change when you buy a newspaper????

seriously confused
Now, look here, first you don't know what broad shoulders mean and now you get confused by the idea of keeping a big wallet in your front pockets.... Shall i tell you something about the flowers and the bees?

You could try wearing a K-cup bra (see recent bra thread on where to purchase) and stuffing the notes in there which would confound thieves AND possibly get you a free pint or two at the pub

That, or do what I became very spoiled with up north - almost never using cash and instead doing everything with the bank card. Easy to track purchases and, most importantly, no annoying coins filling up my pockets.

I used to be the type that never actually carried cash. Since being here, I'm still trying to figure out how to live on plastic. I'm surprised how many places only take cash. It's a bit peeving.

Sure, but the older version with the ants were cooler (and larger).

You've never one (or many)?

And I have broken one (on more than one occasion) by buying something for less than CHF 5!

That's why I keep my coin purse in the front.
Is that a roll of 5 rappen coins in your pocket or are you just glad to see me ?
