I’ve read the EF was dying. It amazes me how much I already helped.
Not at all, you played well on one of the RTL ads (Werbeslogans) "We love to entertain you!"

I know cler is Romantsch, means clear and the bank that came out of coop-bank carries that name. I must be in finances. I also know the slogan "nichts ist unmöglich", I must be driving a Toyota

Certainly kept me guessing...

And now thanks to the OPs PM, I actually find her reasons for not wanting to let someone in the apartment at that time totally legit, although it's not completely for the reason anyone has guessed so far . And no, I won't share the little bit more than I know.

Anyway, made for several pages until now...

Wow, someone's got a really short fuse.


Just for the record, it was intended as a lighthearted remark. But of course you're free to make of it what you want.

There are threads of course which are more within ones comfort zone.
IKEA wardrobes are very popular at the moment.

I have no idea. But why don't you call them and tell them to stop?

Re: Right to refuse "break-in"

Ok, I know its a late entry, but I thought I might just offer some advice.
First of all, grab all your things, artwork, encrypted copyrights and invisibilty ring and place them in one room, preferably one without windows.
In a tight pattern, lay down mousetraps around the booty, start from inside the room and work your way to the door or you might get trapped yourself.
Measure the door frame of the front door and go to jumbo and ask for some marine-ply. They will cut it to shape for free. Then nail the door shut. To be sure, get some ruby red wax, seal the door and embossle with your own personal seal, just in case those sneaky tradesmen have the idea to remove the ply and replace it.
As a final measure, I have seen this new beaut app on CNN, motion cameras and loud speaker alarm system connected directly to your phone so you can monitor any nefarious activity while in hospital. If you happen to be having general anasthesia, you can ask your surgeon, if you trust him of course, to keep an eye on things while you are under.
See, problem solved and always remember, you are not paranoid if they really are out to get you.......

I prefer Joseph Heller’s version: "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you."

Re: Right to refuse "break-in"

Some members asked me to provide an update. Here it is.

Between November and March, I visited about 30-40 places (apartments, houses).

Most of the time, I went there alone. I didn’t go inside. I spent about half an hour at the address and listened to the noise. When a place was next to a 50 km/h road, there was no reason to see it from inside.

In the end, I gave up on Küsnacht. When there was no traffic, there was a construction.

The first time I searched in the whole canton, I found a place in a restricted area with a beautiful view.

It was the second place I visited inside with the real-estate agent. It was the first place I applied for.

It’s the most beautiful one of every place I considered.

I got it.

I don’t know if they talked to my previous landlord. I know they called my ex-accountant two or three times. I gave her as a reference. Her support made me so happy I hired her back.

That’s it.

I’ve been moving there for three weeks. I don’t know how "normal" people, who ruin their lives with a job and kids, can move to a new place in less than a decade.

When I finish the moving, I will hire a cleaning service, and advertise the old place, otherwise, I would have to rent it until October.

I’m glad I went on my way.

That's one thing I love about Switzerland.

They always build the secure clinics in beautiful locations.

They hire a moving company and do it all within a day, its really not that hard or complicated. Or do you not allow moving company employees into your apartment in case they see your 'top secret' things??

Probably because you lied and wrote 'ledig' on the application.

Assuming you are not ruining your life, who is paying for it?

(And damn, you are good at making people dislike you)
