This is a problem especially German people have in Switzerland cause Germans tend to be very uppish and we don’t like this.
I once had a German co-worker complaining about this (she lives in Germany and works in Switzerland) and asking me why cause Germans find as cute — well this explains everything. I don’t want to be liked by someone who finds me cute — especially not in the working part of my life.
I have a lot of German friends and we stay in contact regularly and visit from time to time and sometimes I can only roll my eyes about them and think to myself: Germans.
Unfortunately I am not the only one and as similar as we seem — we are worlds apart and I don’t think it will change anytime soon.
