I totally and 100% agree with you. People here think that driving a car with two exhausts looking like a tank is great. Now I can understand why a collegue of mine who had been away from Switzerland for a while bought a new luxury car even though he could not really affor it. He just wanted to fit in like everybody else. You can work your but off in this country and people will never say thank you. They just take it for granted that your are hopping around in the golden "Hamster" Wheel like everybody else. In my company already some people suffered from burnout. You can work for two or even 3 people and the only thing you hear is the small thing you did not do even though the person noticing could have done it as well. Is this what SWISS people are like in general? Work work work until they drop dead to their graves without being able to take anything with them? No laughter no joy just heads down and work it baby. Also Swiss people try to screw you for money whenever they see the possibility to do so. When I had my salary negotiations they staretd off with the lowest limit possible. Another dude already left because they talked him into earning less then he had beforehand (it was a misunderstanding). Good for him that he found a new job with even 2,5 h less work a week and better pay. Abother dude got mobbed out of the job and ended up having trouble sleeping and losing his plans to buy a place. Why are SWISS people like this? Are they some sort of programmed to be like this? Well guess what I am not a robot and I will hopefully never assimilate to their Borg like mentality. And the SVP posters with "keep foreigners out" remind me of the German NAZI party. They like to sell their stupid watches into all the world but no foreigners please - we just keep the cash thanks you very much. And dare you say s.th. Then they start ganging up on you like hungry wolfes tearing you to pieces. Honestly I have never been to a western society before with so little honesty and so much backbiting and bitching and lack of grace towards the individual.
