You hear so often from us what is different in our ex-pat lives compared to our previous life in America. This week, I thought it would be funny to do a spoof on US Weekly’s “Stars: They’re Just Like Us!” column to show a few everyday examples of the similarities in American and Swiss citizen’s day-to-day life:
When their cats go missing, they post signs! This reads “Little tricolor cat lost. Please call # if you find it. Thank you.”
They don’t like junk mail. This sign reads “No ads/junk mail in this mailbox”
Baby on board sign
They have troops of Boy Scouts looming around town, saving the day.
They have dollar stores. Sort of. This is a 2 Franc store in the Italian part of Switzerland. So, its more like $2.25 store. Close enough.
They send spam on phones too. Not cool.
They advertise about going green.
Their youngsters play beer pong. Article / photo courtesy of 20 Minutes.
I’ll keep on the hunt of more examples…..stay tuned!
