So here we are again. Today’s internet drift got me lurking into intercultural misunderstandings. Here’s about 10 myths about French people. (Or is it?).
And guess what, the rude French strikes back! I wish it were true, that this is just about a communication issue. The thing is that coming back home lead me to the conclusion that French people (at least in Paris area) are on average more aggressive, if not rude, than American people in their everyday social interactions. Would this have something to do with the fairly high prevalence of toxoplasmosis over here (up to 90% in Paris region)?
