I actually agree with the dorm room thing (#9). Forcing strangers right out of high school to live in a 12 x 15 room is terrible.

I've always wondered why college sports teams don't have private room dorms and use that as a selling point to recruits.

meh true but they also love their country at the same time. How's Paris been lately? burning down yet? or over run with men outside and women hiding at home?

I'm Belgian. Been to the US 50 + times and totaly agree. Especially the tips. Why can't you pay the people a reasonable wage? Why can't you just put the correct price, on say, a t-shirt. And that Fahrenheit an inches-thing, Come on.
Anyway, I'm pensioned now but I'll come back. Love you guys.

Lucy, working for tips makes you work harder
i'd rather have a nice and polite waitress who is trying her best to get a tip for her service than a rude french waiter who's being paid the going rate and doesnt care on way or the other if you're enjoying your meal

and yes, i've run into rude waiters in Paris over in the Latin Quarter

Mae,

Well, you took the right place I must say. Never go to eat in the Latin Quarter. It's a tourist trap. Never go to eat in the 'rue des bouchers' in Brussels either. And yes, they are rude in those places (Parisians in general look down on other people :-) ). I (Dutch-speakingBelgian ) speak fluently French, except in Paris, then I speak English, it makes them uncertain.
But on the other hand, you know before you enter exactly what you will be paying. I'm still against your tipping system.

Mae,
i disagree that tips make you work harder. if you are paid 2$ an hour and you *have* to get tips to make a living wage it's insane and stressful.
if the waiter is rude then the restaurant will suffer bad rating/rep and this person is more than likely to lose their job. being decent and polite is a minimun requirement.

Mae, so you're saying that all customer service type jobs should be paid via tips? You really are a useful idiot for the restauranteurs that love perpetuating this myth as an excuse to pay lousy wages sm_80

Jennifer, well in all fairness, there have been numerous posts along these lines in reference to other countries. I recall a number of ones about Russia for example.

Listen Frenchie Customs in France are weird to all of us, yet I am not complaining. We drive big cars to feed our big egos and enjoy big meals because we can! And American coffee doesn’t pretend to be European at all. Air conditioning I recall a number of people that died during a heat wave in France. We like to keep cool and smell nice, oh yeah that reminds me American girls shave their legs, bikini area, and arm pits. For one, they look way hotter and smell nicer in the summer.

Baseball is the American past time and for crying out loud you guys would loose to us if you even tried. Hence the World Series in North America.

Celsius vs Fahrenheit. In cold weather I will agree with you, but think about it what sounds better in summer 30 degrees Celsius or 86 Fahrenheit. And cars way cooler that can go from 0-60 than 0-100. We drive big muscle cars and use the Imperial system because we can. When I think of metric I think of Canada. So boring. Didn’t the Imperial system originate in the UK?

Oh and don’t rip on the multi varieties of Oreo cookies because you Frenchies are jealous you have maybe just plain Oreos. Variety is the spice of life.

One last thing when in America do like the Americans. Life is much happier.

Your countrymen did not complain about the American flags when they were on tanks that freed your miserable country of cowardly cheese-eating men and hairy legged and smelly women, did they? The French are the most arrogant people with the least to be arrogant about.

huh these are annoyances at best. changing laws per state? how about changing languages? Europe sucked before you all started using a single currency.
And America is caught up on the metric system. you just dont pay attention that we use both and not just one, not the other.
