Do you know, my wife calls me a grumpy bastard, and I have been often accused of looking at the miserable side of things and taking a negative attitude towards people. But this site and people’s blogs on it are beginning to make me feel like an amateur.
So many blogs are moans that this has provoked me to have a moan myself. Most of the moans are about France and the french. Do you know what this provokes from me (and I expect from other readers)? The most horrible response of “What the hell are you doing here then?” and “P**s off back to the UK then”. Because, believe me, it is a lot worse there,as several of my friends who have been made redundant there will tell you, and also those friends on long hospital waiting lists, and with kids in awful inner city schools, and those living in nice North London areas where there is a murder on a weekly basis.
Really, I am sick of hearing about all the terrible things wrong with France. No one is forcing you to live here. But then no one is forcing me to read your moans, so the simple thing would to be to stop going on this website, wouldn’t it?
