you are basing that argument on a load of shit and some crappy stereotype that no one even knows why they believe

Can't we just accept that some french people are dickish and others aren't?! Pretty sure it's the same in any country.

Agreeing with you here. I've met plenty of dicks on all the countries I've visited. Most places in europe are pretty similar.

I still don't like France very much though.

Still the dumbest thing said in this thread in the past few pages was made by the arch-defender of the French.

pretty much every French person I've ever met has been incredibly chilled out and friendly and couldn't be more accommodating and lovely.

but you know the fact that I have made every effort to not be a total arse of a tourist, speak French to them and not treat them like they're going to be a dick

that and the south of France is better

basically, people in this shithole of a country don't give it a chance because there's some ridiculous need to hate the neighbouring country.

which is stupid, outdated and i wish people would get over it.

and yes, it is bigoted.

Yet, we're telling you that we've been there, found things a particularly way, yet we're still wrong because it disagrees with you?

Grow up.

if i had a need to hate a neighbouring country, id be one of those ridiculous scots who holds a grudge against england and everything english.

and yeah, i speak a reasonable enough level of french, which is exactly how i know how dickish they can be towards tourists.

but i forget about your strange love of france, and refusal to accept that it is anything less than the perfect country with the perfect people, clearly i am wrong.

i give up.

also i'm quite fucking grown up and i resent those accusations.

i forgot how much i hated this forum's "advice"

it's insulting because no one there, not one person acted with the prejudice i see over here. yes, it's something i feel passionate about. i get upset because it feels as though you are insulting the people i know and love - even though this isn't the case.

people who are this rude on an internet forum condemning an entire nation as "dicks" never fails to make me laugh

what does this have to do with anything? all it means is she's more likely to be biased in favour of france.
