Re: French High Street charity shops?

Quite obvious that this post by NickP is purely a personal attack. Disgusting. Hopefully will be removed. Have reported it. (comment to avoid any speculation).
My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

Some comments say more about the person making them than they do about the object of the comments..Big Smile [:D]

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Re: French High Street charity shops?

I'm with Nicky P on this one.

I guess that Nicky is choking on a pork pie as we speak when saying that but yeah, I don't get Normans point here.

Re: French High Street charity shops?

I have edited a post on this thread.
Will posters please remember not to use personal insults on this forum.

Many years ago I saw a very efficient charity shop in the USA. People could make donations which were tax deductible and the charity employed people with problems to wash , iron and sort things into categories. It all appeared to work very well.

I reckon that charity shops are an essentially British concept, and there is no reason why one should expect to find them in France.
I confess  I am tired of people thinking that they are living in a suburb of the UK.

If one lived in a more obviously different country from the UK than  France is, somewhere rather more exotic such as Tibet would people be complaining about the fact that things are different?

 

One would not want to live in Tibet unless Sky was broadcast there Big Smile [:D]

Try as I may, I find it impossible to ever pronounce Emmaüs accurately enough for any French person to have any inklin as to what it is I'm saying.  Confused <img src=">

If you are disgusted by someone being called a grumpy old git, then you must have lived a very sheltered life whoever you are. Dear oh dear no wonder Anglo French forums are failing fast.
