Luckily, the problem was resolved in a professional and timely manner and I ended up having a superb customer service interaction with Bohus.6.
If you can’t find it here, it could be banned: The Norwegian government is notorious for banning things. I didn’t discover this until my friend who works for customs and tolls here informed me that that is why I am unable to find it, but can find every single other Yogi tea here.
Salaries: I constantly hear from Norwegians, even when irrelevant to a conversation, “We are so lucky to get paid so well here…that is why everything is more expensive.” This is not always true.
Granted, a housekeeper or retail shop worker gets paid drastically more than in the US.
These people are looking for information about moving here, and I don’t want them to get the impression that Norwegians are classless or distasteful (because most aren’t) from a blog post. As I approach my two-year anniversary in Norway, I have realized that there are many things I wish I had known, whether it be in a general or specific manner, about Norway prior to moving here.
Perhaps the TV2 programs about the poor quality have helped?
(Again, this was written in 2013 and has likely changed a bit- I no longer live in Norway, so I have no idea! Norwegians don’t complain: And if they do, it is very rarely.
And that doesn’t even account for the taxes or high cost of living here.
If you look at the OECD Better Life Index, you will notice that based on disposable income, the average American makes astoundingly more than the average Norwegian per year.
But skilled workers with education generally do not (I have found that teachers are one of the exceptions).
