There have been so many times when, after observing an aspect of French culture, I have thought, “Wow, that is really nice; I can really appreciate that.” And then there have been times when I have been more like, “WTF France, get your shit together!”
Iced coffee, for example, isn’t a thing here. The French just don’t do it. And when they do, it’s one of those fancy coffee drinks for fat people. I KNOW–completely unacceptable.
Don’t get me wrong, espresso shots are totes convenient–not to mention so cute in that widdle tiny cup! But what are you supposed to do when it’s hot out? It’s 2012, isn’t it your, like, HUMAN RIGHT to get your caffeine fix without working up a sweat? Life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness iced coffee sans 900 calories of heavy whipping cream?
If you ask me, it’s the lack of iced coffee that’s killing the French economy. Yeah, François Hollande, getcha some of that!
