One Swede who calls hushållsnära tjänster with a hard working immigrant that can come and do it for him.

It takes 5 to have a meeting firstly to agree a date for a meeting to discuss it. Then another 5 to have the meeting. However, the meeting is postponed as 2 are at another meeting that time and another 2 are at home with a sick child, leaving just the 1 who was going to change the bulb to sit in the office all day. Finally the next week the meeting can take place to agree the time and date for the lightbulb change. By which time it's July so the lightbulb changer is on holiday until mid-August.

Yet another Swede-bashing thread! rolleyes.gif

I am suprised that you forgot the 'Swedes' relationship to alcohol and sex!

Nobody has said this yet:

Q. How many Swedes does it take to change a lightbulb?

A. One and a bottle of Absolut vodka. After a bottle of Absolut vodka Swedes will screw anything.

Edited to add:

Yes, I am being sarcastic. It is time for all of the idiots that come here to 'Swede-bash' due to their own inadequacies to give it a rest!

The main problem will be finding the lightbulb, since they are being gradually banned in the whole EU...
