I agree the English and French don't seem to get along very well and I think the basis of that is a historical one more than anything.
I have French friends who consider the English do not behave well in French when on holidays ... I agree.
When the English are on holidays here in Australia we frequently have to remind them they are annoying and whinge too much.
Australian's don't tend to be polite when someone is being a dork ... we like to tell them.
I consider the Fench very polite as a people.
I think the perception many have of the French being rude and arrogant is a stereotype poorly deserved.
The French like a good debate ... they like to discuss things from a number of "what if" angles ... other people often do not understand that looking at things from a number of points of view helps us understand.
I'd also like to point out that Australian's have a bit of a bad record for behaviour when on holidays too ... but that can be accounted for by the beer.
If any of the French users at Ttoms Guide want to visit and post here feel free ... you can make a few threads in French if you like ... we will try to keep up if we can.
We kidnapped gropouce from the French site two weeks ago ... tell Xiiime and Dafen we are prepared to negotiate a price.
