tablet with LTE: browsing in public transport non-nude girls

Hi

I use my Google Nexus tabled during train rides. After work I like to browse non-nude nice looking girls.

Is this acceptable in Switzerland?

I had two times a negative situation where a woman told me something in German. I don't understand German, but I guess it's because of nice looking girls.

Are Swiss people not open minded? Do they have problem with beautiful girls?

Perhaps they have a problem with people who openly perv over pictures of beautiful girls. Or perhaps they were commenting that it was bit sad.

Re: tablet with LTE: browsing in public transport non-nude girls

I don't know if this is some sort of build up to you selling your tablet, but I really don't want to be touching that after you.

And, by the way, women are a bit you than sexual objects to pass the time leaching over in a public space. That'll be why they weren't so comfortable. I'd say get a grip, but really, don't.

Re: tablet with LTE: browsing in public transport non-nude girls

If it looks like the pictures on adverts, keep browsing.
If it looks like the nudity forbidden in public, stop browsing.
If you don't know the difference, read the newspapers online.

In the good ol' days, it was just a simple case of receiving disapproving looks as I turned the first page of The Sun.

Re: tablet with LTE: browsing in public transport non-nude girls

Prostitution is legal here, you may drool over, I mean browse, any kind of ads. It's like free speech and watching porn in US libraries. In Germany they can even revoke one's unemployment benefit for rejecting a job offer in the trade. Welcome to Europe.

Its acceptable and the swiss dont have an issue with it. She was probably pointing out how sad your life is as confirmed by your post that you are even needing to do this

Re: tablet with LTE: browsing in public transport non-nude girls

Hi Wladimir

no idea what the woman' problem was. If it happens again, suggest you either speak back to them in English or your native language, to explain you do not understand German.

When I am on my own, I like to look at picture of Handsome man on my tablet, mobile in my wallet, so far no odd reactions

Yeah but I feel like he's lying for sympathy and the reality is he's sitting watching some really edgy porn with the volume turned up.

Re: tablet with LTE: browsing in public transport non-nude girls

If you did not understand what the ladies were saying to you, how are we supposed to know how to react ?

Maybe they were just asking whether the train was going to Uster...

Or maybe they wanted to tell you that your fly was undone....

Or maybe they just wanted to say that they thought you looked like the best thing out since sliced bread and they wanted to ravish you there and then.

Or maybe they just thought it a bit weird for a guy to be looking at women in bikinis who anyway were not that hot.

But what I do not understand is how they could see your tablet and what was on it. Were you deliberately letting them see in order to try and get a reaction.

good grief, what a terrible picture. It's making my brain think my eyes are failing.
