The French can go suck an onion - it is the only country in Europe where many people are able to speak a few words of English but outright refuse to. So in my big international company I find it highly amusing to make them speak English when they need IT support:
"Mon Ordinateur, she is without connexion to le réseau".
"Your what is not connected to what?"
"...Ordinateur is not connected to le réseau"
"Oh, you should have said so! And you can't connect to what?"
[urgent discussion on other side]
"Oh, have you tried restarting it?"
...I'm a bâtard (which I think is a word they nicked from the English).
If the French and their Latin rip-off babble had wanted to dominate the language world they should have invented Internet instead of Minitel
(which they co-developed with the Brits). Muahahaha!
