The French are the worst tourists

According to a new study commissioned by Expedia.com has found the French to be the worst tourists in the world.

French holidaymakers and business travellers were the least generous or ready to tip, and ranked next-to-last for their overall behaviour and politeness.

Pushy French travellers made amends on elegance -- classed third -- as well as for their discretion and cleanliness.

But the French were the least ready to try a new language, unlike US tourists who were most likely to swallow their pride and order a pizza, baguette or a paella in the local lingo.

This of course comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with French castles on the English countryside.
