Although I know you can't tar them all with the same brush, some may be nice, polite people (although I have yet to meet one) but my overall view of the French is that they were rude. The only time they were nice - after they had realised we were English, was when we were paying them for something (and sometimes not even then!)

    The first night we got there we were queueing up at a snack-stop type thing and when my bf spoke to ask for our order, the whole queue turned and looked at us and started laughing and pointing and talking to each other. It was so obvious that it was because we were English because they hadn't batted an eyelid before he'd spoke.

    I definitely think that the French have a bigger problem with English than we do with them. Oh and I also think that most of them are boring and miserable people. They try to be so sophisticated and mature, so they look at you like shit if you dare to order a vodka earlier than 9 o'clock and wear a vest top in the winter - hello I'm from England this weather is HOT to me!!

    The only nice person we came across was the man in the hotel, he was extremely helpful and very well mannered, but then we found out he was originally from Bolton in Engand!!
    Sorry you had a bad experience. These people in the queue were indeed rude, but above all really stupid. In any case, I've been a lot to England and have met both nice and rude people (my bf and I have been often refused entrance in clubs because we were French, and sometimes in a pub the bartender pretended not to understand my English in order to embarrass me.) But thankfully a lot of people have also been nice or just normal with me and I still like the English. I love England, and I'm not going to stop loving it because of a few jerks who are just to narrow-minded to understand other cultures ( when I say jerks I include the people who mocked you in Nice of course).

    Eh, the French and English have their history.. the english sniff at the frogs, and the french smirk at 'Les Rosbifs'.. always has been, always will be.

    Americans are seen as poor colonial cousins, Canadians are more of a curiosity (and btw, Canada and Canadians would be LOATHE to be in the sun, as Sojita tried to make fun of us for.. we don't desire to have that much attention directed our way, that would be gauche.), but at least a quieter one..

    Oh I can believe some of the Elglish can be arse holes too! Like I said, you can't tar them all with the same brush, it just annoys me that they do it just because we're English, it's so unfair. And it makes me feel embarrassed that th English do it to the french too, I don't think I've ever come across a French person here (maybe thats coz nobody in their right mind would want to visit where I live!) but if I did it wouldn't even cross my mind to even look at them any differently than anyone else! Everyone just needs to grow up and realise, wow we speak different and come from different places!!!

    Ummm Canada has had its fill of wars. We sent 1.5 million soldiers to WWI, WWII & the Korean wars. After these wars, Canada and other like-minded countries felt is was better to PREVENT wars if at all possible. Canada played a leading role in the peacekeeping movement in the UN. In fact, a Canadian, Lester B. Pearson, won the 1957 Nobel Peace Prize for his pioneering vision in helping establish a UN force to prevent the Suez Crisis of the 1950's from escalating into a global confrontation.

    Us Canadians are a polite country that prides ourselves in peacekeeping, not warmongering. (Although the only war we had with the U.S.A. we won!)

    And thats enough sunshine for me!

    Why? Do you need more water to grow grass in las vegas?
    You need to settle the softwood tariff dispute.
    And upgrade your Power Stations lines.

    Until then No!

    I have two friends who have been to Paris and environs in the last year and have nothing but good to say about the French. Don't judge it on the people in the tourists traps, New Yorkers are known to be rude also. Take a trip into the villiages and you will find very kind sweet and polite French people.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    I totally agree nana, but I think we are talking more the people as a whole, and the French political policies for sure!

    I may be naive, but I truly do believe that most people basically are kind, polite and hospitable all over the world. Just like no one country is full of assholes, no one country has all polite happy people.... not even us Canuckleheads!

    "polite" and "French" don't go together! The French wouldn't know manners/tact if it smacked them in the face!

    It comes to a point when it's just incessant, irrational bashing that people start putting up hands and objecting.
