Title: The French fail... again

I know the french have a bad rap for their military and feminine ways, but this is just a slap in the face. :roll: ;D


French tourists seen as world's worst: survey

PARIS (Reuters Life!) French tourists are the worst in the world, coming across as bad at foreign languages, tight-fisted and arrogant, according to a survey of 4,500 hotel owners across the world.

They finish in last place in the survey carried out for internet travel agency Expedia by polling company TNS Infratest, which said French holidaymakers don't speak local languages and are seen as impolite.

"It's mainly the fact that they speak little or no English when they're abroad, and they don't speak much of the local language," Expedia Marketing Director Timothee de Roux told radio station France Info.

"The French don't go abroad very much. We're lucky enough to have a country which is magnificent in terms of its landscape and culture," he said, adding that 90 per cent of French people did their traveling at home.

"So when they're on holiday they can be a bit stressed, they're not used to things, and this can lead them to be demanding in a way which could be seen as a certain arrogance."

French tourists are also accused of generally spending less than other nationalities when abroad.

De Roux said the French, not accustomed to leaving large tips at home where a service charge is automatically levied on restaurant bills, can seem "tight-fisted" compared with other nationalities.

The Japanese ranked top of the Best Tourist survey, with the British and the Germans judged the best of the Europeans.

And if this wasn't bad enough, they can't even come in first for their girly ways. ;D

But French tourists received some consolation for their poor performance, finishing third after the Italians and British for dress sense while on holiday.

If I were French I think I'd need to hire somebody to boost my low self esteem. :roll:

1.Did you hear they had to close Euro-Disney outside of Paris?

Yep, it seems every night following the fireworks display the French military would surrender.

2. Want to buy a French infantry rifle?

    Never been fired and only dropped once.

3. Ever hear about the French war hero?

   Nobody else has either.

4. Why is the French Army military academy only 4 months long?

  That's how long it takes the French soldiers to learn to say "I surrender"
   in every language on earth.

5. Who's the busiest man in France during a war?

    The guy who makes the white flags.

6. How can you tell French men from French women?

    The women have more hair under their arms and on their legs.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Yep, sounds like the French!
The only reason I would visit their country is to tour our military cemeteries. I heard the French graves all have white flags on top of the graves instead of  tombstones.
