    By the way, sorry if the following post sounds harsh, but you have to understand that I'm sick and tired of that sort of innuendos.

    I think that nobody should be arrogant. Be they French, British, Americans or of any other origin. Hence the post above in which I ranted about Paris.

    I know there is a recent American tradition of using the word French as a synonym for cowardly. I've noticed Triactus's comment above and that is just the limited amount of French bashing I can take from anyone.

    My great grandfather lost two brothers during WWI and my grandfather was almost shot because he refused to collaborate with the Germans during the Occupation so as far as I'm concerned I have no reason for being ashamed of being French.

    WW2 was a complete disaster, that's true. But have you ever heard of the French resistance and the Free French Forces? De Gaulle turned a broken down country into a nation, which despite its small size and population, has become one of the permanent members of the UN Security Council and has its own nuclear weapons (which weren't gifted by the US).

    If we talk about what is happening right now then I can but agree that it's all going down the drain unfortunately. Please don't get me started on the current French administration.

    @Silvery: we are still rather sensitive about the war. It's been more than 60 years but some things leave deep marks. Still, France has a special relationship with Germany inside the EU with a joined representation and that is something that we can only be grateful for as bringing our two nations closer is the only way to erase the trauma resulting from two world wars.

    In the children's movie Flushed Away there are some villianous French ninja frogs. When they corner the heroes the leader yells, "TO ACTION!"

    All the other French frogs put up their arms and cry "We surrender!"

    Yea, ok, enough with the French jokes. Any kind of nationality jokes are obviously in bad taste here as we've a very multi-cultural bunch.

    Oh Cara, I'm sorry! I apologize, I was just poking fun, I didn't mean to insult you... :( Of course I respect the french, and they did fight hard in WWII in the underground. I have a french friend whose grandfather was forced in the german army after the capitulation and I've heard nasty stories...

    I'm sorry for my comments Cara. :(

    Damn, Sil, when were you in Quebec? That's the most accurate description of the province I heard in aeons!

    ...oh, you weren't talking about QC.

    ION, today was a piece of [expletive] day at work. I lost count of the times where I seriously considered choking out somebody about two hours into the shift. Oh yeah, an A-hole had a heart attack in the store today. Too bad they didn't let her die right there, right now. That would've made my day for sure.... stupid, whining, filthy, disgusting, piss drinking [expletive].

    But, the fog has once again manifested itself, so it's all good now. Nothing chills this pissed off SOB like a burial in smoke.

    I just checked your blog, but there's several entries marked "stupid people" so I had a hard time figuring out which one it is :D
    That said your rant on driving was hilarious :lol:

    Do let me know if you're here! Unless you mean Quebec city, that little hole in the middle of nowhere up North near the Arctic :D
    And here I thought I wouldn't fall for the region bashing... :shake:
