Jul 2nd 2012 9:25AM Jenn is 100% correct. Parisians are very rude and unfriendly. I have been to Paris 3 times and each time i vowed to never go back. 1st trip was high school tour trip. Second trip was with a good friend who did not want to travel alone and third trip was with my wife ( Which i had to bring to the City of Love).
Each separate trip the people were RUDE and unhelpful. They acted exactly as Jenn described, you try and speak French and they stare ignorantly at you and YES they can speak some English, as well as my French.
No, i am not agreeing it is 100% of the all Parisians, but the vast majority who deal with tourist. I can understand the the people who do not interact daily with tourist but the others, No.
The only help and assistance i ever received was from a Brit, an Australian, and several Spaniards.
i am an American and i once had a job dealing with tourist traveling through my city.... I know the language barrier is difficult but we tried our best to communicate with every person who visited, French, German, Swedish, etc. And we did this with a smile on our FACE because we are not rude.
There is a difference between being Unfriendly and Being RUDE. In many US cities the people are unfriendly... In Paris the people are RUDE.

Feb 9th 2010 12:26PM Wouldn't leave her alone? For two weeks she was on every media outlet who would listen to her about her husband and the superbowl... She even did an interview of what her plan was for when she rushed the field to meet her husband when they won.. She has to take the good with the bad, you can't turn off the media.
Feb 9th 2010 10:36AM The Saints were very lucky.. Lucky they had the opportunity to beat the Cardinals, Vikings (chockers), and Colts... Rather be a lucky Champion than a loser like Vikings.. PS Thank your "talented" and not lucky Brett for me.
