The Deutsche Bank, which itself does NOT use the DB abbreviation, may in financial terms be xxx-larger, but in real terms is an irrelevant dwarf. And you, apparently a banking gnome, are displaying the usual banker's arrogance in the usual ugly way !

You might well realize that we "others", the non-bankers, are not your slaves but your customers. But the tone, we usually get from bankers leads to the ideas that non-bankers are perceived just as more or less useful idiots
This is officially the post of the day.

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

Seems like there is a difference between the daytime Wolli and the night-time Wolli.

Could he be a Black Sheep?

Ah Wolli.... confused when the humour appears again FB (that's Frau Bart) not FaceBook, is not a banker (with a B not a W) neither is she a gnome (last time I looked) or arrogant, but I'm sure she'll reply to put you right after. That would be after her bath in warm pandas milk and has been has patted dry by her maid
only one maid you mean ? Not three of them And I thought that "FB" means Frauen-only-Banking ! I indeed hope she enjoys her bath in warm pandas milk, as she for sure can afford it !

go to www.db.com and tell me what you find...

Hint it isn't Deutsche Bahn

You're normally so well researched as well

DB is the stock exchange symbol for Deutsche Bank, so in finance circles DB is far more commonly thought of as the bank--not to mention Deutsche Bank is a bazillion times bigger than Deutsche Bahn.



...and since your obvious love of pedantry is on display again today, let me correct you: he's actually from Mels in St. Gallen, and not in Zurich. Though yes, he and his family do live in Zurich.
He and his family may be "from" Mels but you say that they live in Zürich and this to me means that he is a Zürcher ! "To be from" in CH just means that you LEGALLY are citizen of a certain village or town.

Beside the point that stock exchange symbols are not what average people on their ways actually see

means Deutschland

You are deliberately missing the point. You said that Deutsche Bank do not use the abbreviation DB, whereas they clearly do - it's their website address. I would suggest that they chose not to go with www.db.de because they want to be seen as a global player rather than a German one.

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

Hey guys and gals-
I am so so sorry, but something has come up and we are unable to make it tonight. I know, really really lame... but when things like this happen, there isn't much I can do.

Happy Turkey Day to all! Have a blast! Can't wait for stories tomorrow...

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

Sunday afternoon? Last Sunday the brunch people were already at it with the Cava by 11am. The Markthalle being open on Sundays helped the mood, I guess.

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

Mayday! Mayday! (In December, no less.) The chicken-potato curry for the puffs is not spicy enough and I ate up half the frosted sugar cookies.

Sigh. See a couple of you in the afternoon. I hope.


P.S. JLP, you're lovely as a woman; why you want do dat? :O

You just had to go and spill the silicone. I think those +2's will look brill on me, especially after iBeeb telling me I was slim and not medium-build at pool night (yay me! although it must have been a Montreux flashback).

Those +2's are so multi-functional... think about when I say "I'll hold your drink.".
