Re: Is my salary enough..

Most excellent intro. I did audibly groan when I read your title, however was smiling after reading it all.

A very warm welcome to you.

I was actually confused as to whether to use 'Is my salary enough' or 'quest for 6 piece KFC'... didnt know which of these would get more attention..
You could also have chosen trams and strollers. Be aware that you have now raised expectations - I expect you to make me smile again in future

Nice one, and welcome.

Hmm, interesting topics...one is about nothing, one is about taking and the last one is about giving.

Now that I have your attention... a big hello to everyone. I am from South India and have been living in Olten (yes yes the town which LIB loves so much) for about a year now. I have been lurking around here for quite some time now

(long enough to know that the biggest mistakes that you can do around here are

a)ask if a salary of 120K is enough to survive in Switzerland
b)where to get brown sugar
c)call Switzerland Swiss


)

This forum has provided loads of great information to me whenever required (the search function here is definitely our friend)..I have joined hopping that I can also make some small contributions to the forum.

Well thats all from me. Have a great friday everyone...
Good start.... Welcome to EF

Man am I jealous looking at those green blobs against your name?

If you made a quest for a 6 piece thread, it would bring the worst out in our LiB

Re: Is my salary enough..

Wow - nice introduction to the forum! I am a impressed and a bit jealous. I have to admit, after introducing myself became quite shy with this group (not normal for me) and had not posted again.

After reading your post had to jump in and say Thank You - your post made me smile in what has otherwise been a pretty lousy Friday!
