1. You tipped the waiter! it was only 20c but it’s a tip.
2. You consider it normal for a person at the till to be rude, after all he/she has « un boulot de merde » (ie a shitty job) so you can’t expect him/her to be polite as well
3. You wonder why there are 4 empty seats in the bus… is there someone who stinks sitting nearby or someone spilled his drink?
4. You overtipped the waiter bringing you the -free – jug of water you asked for BEFORE the end of the meal ! (he got 40 centimes)
5. You are speaking English to guys who are obnoxious in the subway (bus or train), some guys ust don’t understand a plain « I’m not interested » and make « hey mademoazelle…. » sound like an insult.
6. You are sitting in the seat that is NOT next to the window in the bus that way you can have a free seat next to you. Never mind if half the bus is not taken even though lots of people are standing. Bonus point if you don’t stand up or move to let a person sit next to the window.
7. You will suddenly not understand or speak English if a tourist doesn’t say « bonjour » or « excusez moi »! (so if you’re reading and you’re a foreigner please make an effort)
8. You are blind when it comes to queuing. So much so that the person at the till today asked me if the lady standing near me was with me. NO she was just queuing the French way!
9. You can speak for hours about your favourite kind of bread! Yes, there really is a difference between » céréales » and « pain complet »
10. You sometimes help tourists when they are lost and can even stop a shoplifter from thrusting their hand in their bagpack but around you no one else will make a move or even say anything.
