This article caught my eye because in my world travels, I have kept a keen eye on where rudeness runs rampant and where the population practices a greater degree of kindness and consideration of others. While all of France can’t be categorized as “rude”, I have experienced a greater percentage of haughty behavior in Paris than in most other cities. Since the word etiquette is French, I have always found this to be bizarre and sad. Perhaps the tide is turning and Parisians are thinking that kindness is better? What do you think?
