    I must admit, when we went to Paris, I didn't like it. The city was nice, but the people are horrible. The people in Nice were much nicer people.

    If this is true... Hilariousness. I found people in france easy to get along with, but my french swearing-vocabulary is impressive, so I must've forced some respect that way. :p

    We went to a pizza shop on the outskirts of Paris and nobody in the shop spoke English, and the three of us didn't speak French. They kept trying to make us leave but we were so hungry we refused to leave. Long story short, they phoned the manager who was on holiday who spoke English and we ordered via him. Took about 45mins though and they all looked pretty pissed off.

    Just glad it was an open kitchen so you could see them make the pizza or it would have been spit pizza for sure.

    Urgh, been to Paris once and the people are fucking rude. I am used to people, usually polish, who don't speak any English trying to buy things at work, and we get there without any rudeness and I help them learn some English at the same time. When I went to France, they just stood there waiting for me to bumble over words in french with no help and got real pissy talking super fast in French and raising their voices etc.
    Never would I go back to that country again unless I had to. I'll stick to the nicer places I've been, like Holland Slovakia, Czech repub, Belgium and ofc English speaking places. Would Def go to Germany as they are apparently very welcoming.

    Well if they are as welcoming as they are good at getting rolled each siege in Aion, then they will be very welcoming indeed.

    Sorry Rodderz, I had too. ;)

    The article is from 20 December 2006

    Paris is the most vistited city in the world, there will obviously be quite a few disapointed people.

    Anyway, I left Paris whitout regret as people living in big cities are generally speaking unbalanced human beings. I had the same feeling in London; this is not a language or culture thing, this is related to a stressfull environment.
    Regarding the language thing, if you go in a foreign country don't expect people to speak english or learn english because you do; its the other way around.

    I agree with the learning the language, It's the patience they don't have. Every other country I've been to I've got by on next to no knowledge by pointing, using broken words etc, trying to make myself clear despite the barrier. The French were the only ones to offer no assistance to communicate and started getting very rude. Considering such a huge population of France speak very good English, it's pure malice to avoid using it just to prove a point. And only the French have done that to me.

    Oh I know. I am not complaining about that. The pizza experience was funny because none of us spoke French, but like, people in Paris even when you try to ask for directions etc. and you try to speak in broken French, they are just complete assholes.

    I expect it is the same in a lot of major cities, but we went to a few big cities as we drove round Europe and Paris was definitely the most unfriendly. Maybe it is because it is so popular the local just get fed up with the same questions from tourists.
