A French waiter, Guillaume Rey, has been sacked by a restaurant for being ‘rude and arrogant’. In the subsequent industrial tribunal his defence was that he wasn’t being rude or arrogant, he was just being French.
Not rude – just French
We French believe our haute cuisine is wasted
On those who think fish fingers count as food.
Or people who add salt before they’ve tasted.
No wonder that we’re arrogant and rude.
Your attitude to dining out is faulty
You Rosbifs eat to live – we live to eat.
Your national dish is Chicken Tikka Balti.
You think of Greggs the Bakers as a treat!
When paying, English pockets aren’t the deepest.
At tipping and gratuities you suck!
The wine you order’s always second cheapest,
And may I say, a poor choice with the duck.
Enjoy your meal, Monsieur, bon appetit,
But please remember, servis non compris.
