Have I lived too long abroad ? Part 1

You know you've been in Switzerland too long when: think it's economically wasteful to have more than one brand of
 a product in a store. think spontaneity is OK, as long as it's planned. think getting up early is good. get upset in the train when a foreign tourist opens the window
 causing a draft to go down your back. actually get interested in the local elections. know the words to the Swiss national anthem. expect the shop clerk to say goodbye after you purchase
 something. wait for the shop clerk to open the door to let you out of
 their shop. prefer to buy in small shops even though its more expensive. think joining clubs is an acceptable way of meeting people
