      So what do you enjoy more: the gay culture of Bucks Co, or Gritty?

        I've never heard either of those. I enjoy staying home, minding my business, and being happy.

          Parisians can have a laugh at you expense. It's a kind of challenge, whether you can take it and dish it right back. It IS a kind of recognition of you as an equal, but it comes with certain demands on you. And if you find yourself taken by surprise or otherwise stumped it can be annoying as hell.

            Since we are now discussing Paris, I have been there 3 times and traveled a bit in the north.
            Over the course of my visits, I ran into exactly one rude person (hotel clerk where I was staying)
            The rest have been extremely pleasant and patient with my limited ability to speak French.
            I have no doubt that there are rude Parisians, but save for a hotel clerk, I haven't met them.

                        Why do you keep asking these questions? You're a New Yorker. If you can't deal with it that's on you.
