Strange habits and methods of the French, part 1 of n
Eat their French Fries with a fork
Be willing to pay 3€ for a Big Mac
Shake everyone's hand upon entrance to the office every morning
Be extremely frank (is that where that word came from?) about racial/sexual prejudices
I'd estimate that about 50% of men are casual smokers, and about 15% are full-on addicted, although that's using an extremely small sample size
Are as likely to ogle as teenage boys (I can only speak for the men, as there are no women in tech support back here)
Are incredibly inattentive about physical security. I was able to shoulder-surf the passkey to get into the office. As a matter of fact, no one has told me what it is, nor have I asked. I guess they just assume I ring the bell or something.
Seem to treat Country music with the same disregard as most Americans North of the Mason-Dixon do
Are much more multi-lingual than your average American. There are two full-time tech support guys and they provide service in French, English, German, Danish, and Spanish. (Granted, that's together, separately they each only have three languages.
