I’m sure by now all of you know that one of the things I hate the most about France is going to La Poste. And clearly this isn’t just one of those “ex-pat issues”, because from what I can tell, French people hate going there too. Well, La Poste must have gotten wind of this fact because my tiny local Post Office recently installed a large flatscreen TV.
Ironically, the program playing on the screen was about exotic beach vacations from what I could tell. “Bonjour customers! While you’re waiting in this endless queu, feel free to torture yourself by watching beautiful images of vacations your SMIC earning sorry French ass cannot afford! Merci suckers!”
