1. We French win the asshole war.
The old stereotype that French people look down on you and talk behind your back — or right to your face as they don’t think you can understand them is not exactly fair. There are jerks in France pretty much like everywhere else — the UK has its fair share as well.
But trust me, if you’ve set foot in both the London tube and Paris métro, you know there is no comparison. French people will push you to get in first, take your seat, walk all over you without a second thought. I’m so glad I left that behind for the scalding-hot and constantly packed London tube, where at least people are nice.
