of Switzerland, this pisses me off to no end. You see, we have to report every fucking penny in our bank accounts to the IRS and every fucking penny we earn (nothing like these billionaires). They will audit our ass so fast that we cannot and do not live here comfortably. It's the most expensive place to live and it costs more to live here than SF CA. These cheats make it hard for us little middle class Americans that live here. When we tried to open a bank account (employer transfer) they freaking locked our accounts for 3 weeks before the US IRS could verify who we were and we had to use credit cards for months to get over this locking down of our accounts. There was nothing we could do and we had to borrow money from family in order to pay our apartment deposit (which was 3 months rent)! I'm so mad reading this shit. This is why we can't have nice things. (shakes fist).

Thanks for sharing.
