Ah! That'd be the civil servants, putting down their coffee and biscuits for just long enough to get in the way of honest workers trying to get home from work.

That's nice of them, isn't it?

Re: limmatquai, zurich is blocked

It could be a protest rally by "normal" Swiss workers, because they've heard that Johnny Foreigner gets paid 120K, and it's still not enough to live on (or is it?)

They're also demanding brown sugar and complaining that IKEA staff don't speak English.

More likely, because Migros have run out of the Golden "Joker" nano, that they were trying to get for their screaming kids, on the way home from work.

Re: limmatquai, zurich is blocked

Apparently the real reason is that theyve stopped free beer for all the workers....sound far fetched? This is exactly what happened when Carlsberg tried to restrict beer driving by delivery drivers!

My solidarity with the proletariat begins and ends with that jacket.

I'm posh, me. Posh people don't do industrial action.

That wasn't quite the story. Carlsberg staff were banned from drinking during work hours and only allowed to drink at lunch time. The drivers were not allowed to drink before that and came out on strike in sympathy with their colleagues.
