It reminds me a joke I posted a year or two ago - "Why are you staring at me, Sir?", "My wife told me to quit staring at pretty girls."

It has been brought up here in the past how the Swiss do tend to stare a bit more than what most Anglo types are used to.

I bumped into an article today, a handy guide on how to stop staring.

Next time someone stares at you, regardless of where you are, you can have a copy of this article with you and hand it to them as you leave their staring space.

Well, just a thought at least.
The Swiss ( people ) only stare at me when i'm walking with an attractive lady!
