Don't call Canadians 'American' or smile at the French, British hoteliers told
From article: Don't: Exchange a smile or make eye contact with anyone from France who you do not know.
Why is this?
I sincerely hope that someone here on MP can enlighten us on this topic.
These articles tend to generalize way too much. People are all different, and one can best learn through personal interaction, not by reading guidebooks.
Lol I'm Canadian. Seriously, it's way hard to tell the difference between Canadian and American.
Most of us get called an American, we don't really care.
Yup, about the same kind of wisdom as: "all Brazilians and Italians passengers and those who selectively understand English can now board the plane"!
Except for your flapping heads. j/k
Well, you are North American. But yes, I know the US has completely bogarted the term "American".
and the way we pronounce "aboot" and how we say thank you in the end of each sentence.
That's Canadian humor, Eh?
I have looked and smiled at many a French Woman, and they smiled back.
It is them Asians that will not look you in the eye, unless you are married to one of them, then she always has her eyeball on you.
I'm always asked if I'm Canadian because I don't have the stereotypical Southern accent that people from Louisiana are expected to have. I don't take offense to it, but I guess some people might.
They are being too general and stereotypical so they can sell more books. The comment section was an entertaining read this morning.
Most comment sections are. That, or they're frightening and saddening.
