The Impossible Dream

Sorry, did not see you sitting there for 3 hours waiting for a menu.

Oh for crying out loud French Tourism officials, save your time and money because nothing is going to make Paris friendly to tourists. In an attempt to improve tourism in the city of love, the Paris Chamber of Commerce have distributed 30,000  “Do you speak tourist?” manuals to tourism-related industries. The pamphlet includes such revelations as …. the British expect “smiling, friendly staff, a warm welcome and a playful dimension to cultural attractions.” and the Yanks expect “to be taken care of quickly, and a mastery of English.” Hmm, now why would they want to go and do something like that? Paris is nothing, unless you have been ignored by a waiter, grunted at by a local or had the “eye roll” because you say everything in a bad French accent  . Sheez, next they’ll be wanting to clean up the dog poop. They just have to spoil everything!!!
