I can't be bothered to go back and check op's many trolling posts, but didn't she allude to being a prostitute or dominatrix or something*

I am also not going to read back, but I thought it was us (as being all other members) coming up with such due to her desire for secrecy.

Besides that, prostitute is a job.

One meets people, and knowing people is good for a career.

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

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

I got it.
And the demolition of the building across the road, as part of a new school build begins tomorrow.

I do.

So, I should stop reading the forum, and finish putting the rest of my items into the boxes. I’m sure someone will be happy to have this place.

There's no reason you should stop reading the forum, it's writing here that seems to be the problem.

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??
She needs one of these top-secret-high-security bank-vans to move. They are not easy to come by.

I sure hope she got all the stuff within the flat renovated and up to the latest standard. Would be a pitty having to move again (investing 5 months in looking for a new place again) just because a a tap trickles.

I would say, every job is prostitution.

Freelancing also is.

(I’m not native, but how could a lancer be free?)

If they are “lancing” for free you are not doing prostitution right.

(Freelancer is free to work for whom they want as opposed to a contractor or employee who has to work for specific companies/people. Like the difference between a freehold and a leasehold property, or a freeman and a serf)

A lancer (soldier with lance) would be just another one of your paid folk.

So... if you are a freelancer... which is working for yourself, by yourelf... to follow your odd analogy, that would make you... ???

And, eh?

There are two cases. You work for others. You work for yourself.

Freelancing is better than a job, but if one has five clients, one has five bosses.

Deadlines. Obligations. How is that free?

A lancer is a soldier. A soldier belongs to an army.

If a flying saucer would land in my garden today, and the aliens would tell me, "Amanda, hi! It’s great to see you again. Please tell us what freedom is!"

I doubt I would start my explanation like this:

"Freedom... freedom... hm... Okay, I got it. So, imagine an army..."

Love your hyperanalitical skills, OP. Would you like to change the English language too? Swiss forms are wrong. "Ledig" is not translated correctly in the German-English dictionaries (did I get that right?)..."Freelance" is also wrong because you see a contradiction in terms or whatever, where no-one even cares....sigh, each to their own...
Why are you debating these linguistic subtleties with a bunch of retards like us?

But that's like asking why trolls are trolling....isn't 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.
Wow, didn't see this post

You meant how "retarted" people can move in less than a decade?

Not if you groom your clients correctly. What's important is that they believe you work for them.

I like English. I wish it were my native language. It has its issues though.

What the hell is a vacuum cleaner?

There is no vacuum inside. It does not clean vacuum. It makes the low-pressure air, which is not a vacuum, dirtier.

German, Russian, and my native language call it dust sucker. It’s what it does. It sucks the dust.

What is a vacuum tube?

There is no vacuum inside. If it were, it wouldn’t say anything about its purpose. The vacuum cleaner is also a tube, by the way.

Russian and my native language call it electron tube. That’s what it does. The cute little electrons fly in the tube.

German fails on the electron tube test.

In my native language, species and race are distinct words. In English, they are interchangeable, even though the biological race is below the level of subspecies. This is an issue since the radical right propaganda advertises there are multiple species of humans. It’s not true. However, there are biological races.

Despite the issues crying for a fix, I like English.

I learned German for seven years in the school. My brain threw it away. The main issue was the der, die, das. It’s stupid. Now I have to learn it from almost zero as I ended up in Switzerland. I like Swiss German though. It’s the best attempt ever to fix German. It still has der, die, das, but it’s not a military grade language anymore.

I did not learn English in the school. I learned it from movie subtitles and scientific books.

i fully agree with your post.

another example is facebook which is not available as a printed book, which is very misleading. Facebook should either provide a quarterly printed version to all users or change its name to faceweb.
