Story: The Swiss are a very dour people – and not prone to much communication.

Hans and Maria lived on a farm in Switzerland. Maria was starved of affection. And Hans never gave her any signs of love. So Maria’s need to be appreciated went unfulfilled.

At her wit’s end one day, Maria suddenly burst into tears and said, "Hans, why don’t you ever tell me that you love me?"

Hans took a puff on his pipe and reflected for a moment. He then answered stoically,

"Maria, my dearest, when we were married I told you that I loved you, and if I ever change my mind, you’ll be the first to know."
