Re: french attitudes that annoy you

I think the French are generally more polite than Brits. OH and I often let someone go ahead of us at the checkout if they only have a couple of items, and they always say 'Thank you'. It's when you join a queue as the person in front has few items, then they pull a load more out of a shopping bag! And my heart always sinks when someone, having taking ages to pack their bags, reaches for the cheque book. Why can't there be a 'no cheques' till?
