Live Like a Swede

So accurate, it hurts. I think the joke about the Friskvårdsbidrag is the best -- for those not in the know, it's a Swedish subsidy provided by employers to be spent on your choice of wellbeing care. It's usually used for a gym membership, but can also cover a whole bunch of other things (massages, etc). I particularly enjoy this guy's use!

It would be nice if it weren't so hard to get other countries on board with this setup. I think most of my family and friends back in the US think I'm exaggerating when I mention these kinds of things!


  1. Damn and I thought the Germans had it good. I mean, they do, but Swedes, oh man. #AmericaFail

  2. Were are spoiled in the Scandinavian countries!
