|I feel obliged to create a thread in defence of france, unfortunatly nationalistic posters have in recent months created a very negative image of france. 1 poster in particular FS to my mind is now coming accross as rather racist (kick morrocons out if morrocco doesnt buy the rafale). we have our own i know and im amongst the 1st to have a go at them
now as an englishman living in france i can point out many problems with france and french culture (some of which the french will point out first).
however many of the people are very warm and considerate, I am unable to speak french neither is my housemate, 2 weeks ago i was on the receiving end of an unfortunate accident, i couldnt have asked for better neighbours,. despite the language barrier they offered all the assistance possible, they called the emergency service, other neighbours on learning about the accident have since offered any help we need.
obviously my thanks to the emergency services, to the docters nurses and especially the surgeons and theatre staff who worked for 6 hours straight to save what they could of my fingers.
A totally random thread i agree with no discussion value on sp but given my treatment i feel i would be remiss if i didnt provide a positive image of the french in light of recent rantings.
please excuse my lack of punctuation and use of capitals, its only been a fortnight since the accident and im not used to being short in the finger dept on both hands, and lots of things are difficult for me.
