About me

I know there is a lot cloud around me apparent troll so I want to clear a few things up.

I am not a troll.

I work as a trainee finance.
I came to Switzerland because I got offered a good job here. I wanted to build a new life here in this beautiful country.
I am English
I came to Switzerland to build a new life and start training to earn good money in a few years.

My long term dream is to become Swiss I love this country loads.

People ask these common questions.
Why do I stay in Switzerland when I am poor?
I am not a short minded person I see the long term objectives my Job offers high earning opportunities later on.

Why do I not reply very often?
I have dyslexia and I am just lazy I work a lot I get tired I often just sleep.

Why are my threads not very consistent?
I make lots of mistakes with words and get the meanings wrong.

I just want to make some friends as I am a lovely person really I do care about environment animals etc.

I was wondering if anyone knew any charities who help vulnerable people in switzerland ?

I hope we can be friends and sorry if I upset anyone didn't really mean it

Re: About me

You could have done worse on here.

Thanks for making a few clear statements.
It's good to inform people about your dyslexia but do not hide behind it, meaning excusing all kinds of things with it, which have nothing to do with it. We have other long term members on EF with dyslexia, you're not alone.

One thing I ought to tell you: It's al good and well to be just lazy, work a lot, get tired and often just sleep. But so do the other people on here.
Now you are asking for charities which could give you a hand. You got so many good addresses from people here but you never bothered to report back. Things like I contacted ...... and they said they couldn't help. Or I got in touch with ...... and they took me out to a football match. It was pretty cool/very nice/dull, people were all stupid/depressing, the English team didn't win or what ever.

If we don't feel you make use of the information and addresses we go google for you and present you on a silver platter then we also get lazy, get tired and just go to sleep - or turn to an other thread.

So remember:
