Listed below are links to weblogs that reference be thankful you're not an immigrant:
You see this in expat culture in every corner if the globe and it's pathetic. You're an expat, you're well off and don't have family or whatever where you are - so if you don't like it, move?
I'm taking my own advice this summer - I've started to slide into the trap of blaming everything I don't like in Switzerland on 'Swissness'. Time to move somewhere that suits me better.

Tangentially a propos - a different kind of expat experience.

On the other hand I am an immigrant, and happily so. (And given that I do have family, and my wife and children are natives of here, it is just as well.)
I remark in passing that it is possible to blame everything you do not like on the Swiss without ever even having been to Switzerland. I often do, and find it a great comfort.

Hahaha, although I have a suspicion that I'll miss the gnomes of Zurich once I've left.
Chris Y: thanks for sharing the link, incredible.

Which was the thread where we were talking about the Italian election? I've got an answer for Chris.

It was on CT (readers, I wondered whether the Grillini's 'Sicillian Option' was the equivalent of the UK 'confidence and supply'),

Ah - that would be why I couldn't find it. And the answer is... nah, I'll take it over there, unless anyone's curious.
