You know you’re Swiss when…

novembre 1, 2007

1. you complain if your bus/train/tram is more than 5 minutes late. Make that 1 minute

2. you have learned three to four languages and think this is completely normal

3. you can pronounce “Chuchichäschtli” and you know what it means

4. you know what “Röschti” are and you have crossed the “Röschtigrabe” at some point

5. you are amused when people ask you what language is spoken in your home country and/or you have to explain that “Swiss” is not a language, that there are four national languages and none of them is called “Swiss”!

6. as a female, you give all your friends three kisses on the cheeks as a greeting

7. your country has six different public television channels in three different languages – and you don’t think this is unusual

8. you are asked to vote on a “Referendum” or “Initiative” at least 3 or 4 times a year

9. you are used to drinking from any public fountain in the street unless there is a warning sign that says “no drinking water”

10. you think that driving somewhere for four hours is a hell of a long time

11. you don’t see where the problem is when every male citizen who has been to the army has an assault rifle under his bed

  1. Scusa per il commento fuori tema
    ma ho scoperto da poco Rufus, e voglio aggregarmi alla tua ammirazione per lui: è davvero un artista eccezionale, e poi…che voce!
    Comunque, hai per caso la traduzione di Cigarettes and milk chocolate?
    Ad ogni modo,
    mi ha fatto piacere leggere qualche articolo
