Believe it or not, this is not how I dress everyday. Actually, I never dress like that and I can assure you almost nobody in France wears a béret anymore. Nor do people eat croissants every morning, or walk around in designers clothes, and shower with Chanel N°5. I know, this is very disappointing.
Some clichés about French people are true though. If you visit France for a couple weeks, chances are you will encounter a demonstration or won’t be able to take the train because people are on strike. A lot of people do have five weeks of holiday per year – but you need those day-offs to recover from all those strikes. And if you are ever in need of a lighter just ask anybody around you as one in three French people smokes. Which might explain why we tend to be grumpy.
I often refer to clichés about Canada and Canadian people when I write this blog, so to balance the scale, respond to this poll, share this post so many people do it too and let’s see what people think about people from France. I will write a description of a typical French person according to the comments. And maybe try to defend my fellow citizens a little.
