The Frau's very Swiss moment

Swiss train (photo by Brian Opyd)

Over some melted cheese and bread one evening, The Frau’s neighbor asked her what time she would be leaving for the airport.

The Frau answered, “I’m taking the train at 10:30.”

The Frau’s neighbor cocked her head to one side and said, “But doesn’t the airport train leave at 10:29?”

Genau. Hasn’t The Frau learned anything about living in Switzerland the last 6.5 years? How could she have been so inexact?

Have you had a very Swiss moment recently?

I have those moments almost every day, any time I propose to do something not strictly following the protocol

Hi Chantal
That's hilarious, but I suspect, after a couple more years, you'll be the one quoting those exact times. Travelling back from Milan last year, I was sipping coffee from a paper cup at Zürich HB at 10pm waiting for my S-Bahn connection home when 3 people (separately) asked me for train information. And the best bit...I knew the answers!! Scary.

The thing is, I did know the exact time. But it just seemed too exact to actually speak it in a sentence so I just rounded off to 10:30. Next time, I'll know better!

Last week I had a haircut appointment at 10:30 with the same friendly coiffeur I've been going to for 3 years. I walked in the door on time, only to find monsieur frantically talking to his wife, mentioning my name. I cheerily said, "I'm here! Am I late?"

"Yes! Look," he said, holding up his telephone, which showed the time: 10:31.
