Is French Tennis Federation (and france generally) pretnding not to speak English?

Check out this order confirmation statement I received as an email the other day for my order for RG tickets:

"Dear Sir or Madame

Further to your requested dated 02/08/2007, with our reference number
4013382(114732), we are pleased to inform that your order has been confirmated.
We would remind you that allocation of tickets will be made between mid March and
the beginning of April."

NOW, is this a joke? Further to your "Request(ED) ...
your order has been "Confirmated"??????


NO I'M SORRY, i meet people all the time who speak good English. They must have english speaking people at the FFT, no? Plus you got england to the right of you in case you dont know how to spell shit, no come on now.

The idea by Westerners is that most French people speak perfect English but hide it due to rudeness and arrogance.
This is NOT true. French people are not great at languages, nearly all of them, they know this... i can speak in English as often as i want in this country, except for some big cities, NO ONE understands.
I have seen worse mistakes then that in hotel rooms in france.

this one is obvious though. the FFT has all year to get their email message to ticket orderers straight. Those mistakes HAVE TO BE intentional, there is no was it couldn't be intentional.

Anyways, yet another thread on France.

Sluggy, maybe you should request a subforum for all your threads on France. I am sure it will be the biggest hit on the board.

That is right. In the meantime, however, i searched the last 10 threads I've started. Of course, I've also posted in other people's threads. Here R my last threads:

1... Girl said im handsome - NOT FRENCH
2. Open Report - NOT FRENCH
3. Global Warming solidarity - Kinda french, but also done all over europe
4. Who has family members of another background? - NOT FRENCH
5. Tkt for Qualifiers to give away - NOT FRENCH
6. Euro Introduction, where did the money go - FRENCH, but moreso a EUROPEAN THREAD
7. Meds, should I take them? - NOT FRENCH, that's mental health, but not French
8. Ship goes down in England - oil spill??? NOT FRENCH
9. Going to Lunch with a married guy - NOT FRENCH


So where R all my French threads? If i make American threads, You'll say i make american threads, and it the thread is about myself, then you'll say I'm self-centered. So what U really want, is for me to go away.
