I think it's because you're new here. Some people here like to passive-aggressively bully "newbies" on the forum. o
No, it‘s just fun in this case 😀

Happy to help with more pertinent questions, my birth place not being on of those?

Re: Where are you originally from?

My father is from Porto and my mother grew up in a farm in nearby village (1 hour). At 14 she went to Porto and remains there for last 47 years.

I grew up in Porto, moved to Lisbon when i was 29.

At 30 i came to Zurich but always travelling after work to Zug, Konstanz, Lausanne and so on.

Hi Again,

Slightly confused, but I guess I have learnt my lesson today and won’t post things like this again.

Again, apologies to those that didn’t take kindly to my post and thanks to those who welcomed me to the group.

Sorry!

London Kid
Nothing to be sorry for or to not post stuff like this, You'll always find someone who either misunderstands the point of your post, or is just a rude bugger. Just ignore them.

Re: Where are you originally from?

Do they still eat their dead in Yorkshire?

Anyway, born in god´s own bellybutton of Blackburn, moved to Donauwörth in Schwäbisch-Congo, soon got fed up of the boonies and went to Hanau for three years, then Augsburg before being driven out of town tarred and feathered on a rail, went to sea on a wide selection of ships for a few years before ending up in the pointy bits of Austria, went back to Augsburg, did the dumb thing and got married with a happy divorce after 10 years. Needed to get as far away as I could from ground zero and ended up in Krefeld before moving on to Aarhus in Denmark where I got my ass sent to Mexico city, that was before crash landing in Kanton St. Gallen as a pit-stop before hitting the great CHian city of Basel where three years in I did a Hindenburg and crashed and burned. Jumped on IronPig and rode to Malta for six years, now back in the Bavarian boonies near Munich where I am again bored out of my tiny skull.

And that my dear friends is the readers digest short version.

@spinal

We are new to the country and I was just trying to be sociable - apologies if I have offended you

And you actually got off a bit easy compared to the way I've seen some new members treated in this place.

I think they were just trying to play around, but I can also see why you felt frustrated. It was a kind gesture on your part (and a nice introduction), and you must have felt like it was just kind 'thrown back in your face.'

Sometimes we get a little frisky here... especially when we forget to take our medication.

Frisky? Frisky would be asking about our favourite sexual positions. Personally, mine would be....

Darn it. My computer crashed.

lol. Okay, so now you just forced me to look up the definition of the word "frisky" and this is what I found:

frisky
/ˈfrɪski/
adjective: frisky; comparative adjective: friskier; superlative adjective: friskiest

playful and full of energy.


At first I thought maybe I had meant to write "feisty" instead of "frisky." But maybe they would both apply?

Re: Where are you originally from?

Londonkid,


Lots of Brits on here so you probably expected a very polite British answer of whatever shire they hail from. Unfortunately for you, that is not the EF way, especially for noobs.


Me, I was born in Boise, Idaho, USA, but have lived everywhere and now make wine in Saussignac, France.



Grow a thick skin if your are going to forge your way on EF. Bonne chance.

Re: Where are you originally from?

Originally from outside of Philadelphia, PA but have lived most of my life overseas. London (10+ years), Amsterdam 2 years, Sydney 2+ years, Singapore 10+ years and now Zurich for the past 3 and 1/2 years. What an interesting ride it has been

Well, this guy looks playful and full of energy AND is (most likely) into kinky sex. I guess that makes him double frisky?

Nooooo, I didn’t mean your birthplace!!!! I meant where were you based before moving to Switzerland. I was just curious where you moved from if you’re an English speaker
