The Swiss make me smile

So after I picked up my new running shoes bought off of eBay (and paid about half their value again in import duty, but that is another post) I noticed my postal code had been written in ink beside the address label. Strange. I am sure I put the right one down and looked at the crossed out postal code. Sure enough, it was identical to the handwritten one. It was just incorrectly positioned you see. In Switzerland Suisse, the postal code is written BEFORE the city. Apparently some postal workers like to correct the mail passing through the system. This is not the first time. I have had Geneva Geneve and Switzerland Suisse. Actually, I think it was Switzerland Suisse!!!! It makes me smile each time. It is just so....Swiss Suisse.
