To pee or not to pee…….

For those of you who know France, live here or visit often, you will not be surprised at the spectacle of a Frenchman caught short and  sometimes  in the act of relieving himself  bragging at the same time. This is a fairly frequent happening in our neck of the Limousin woods. There he stands back to the open road, without a care in the world spraying his bit of the environment.

There is something very Gallic and indeed simple in this natural self glorification ~ and yet very foreign to the British onlooker. However, in this country of equality and independence I have yet to see a French woman do the same. Can any one explain this?

I understand the British reserve for we have been brought up to believe we could be arrested and charged with indecent behaviour if we did something similar in the UK. So we don’t do it in France either.

But if it is so acceptable for Frenchmen to parade themselves in this way, why not French women?

Can anyone explain?

Hi I'm Vernon Goddard, retired and currently living in Lincoln having spent time abroad in France. My wife Carol and I are enjoying life away from having to make a living; instead we're making plenty of new friends in Lincoln. We have new plans for our time together and new adventures to achieve. Hell Lloyds TSB are still paying for it all and you taxpayers in the UK. So thanks ~ we really appreciate your regular contributions to our spending money. And why not stop and contribute on this site. If you have a view about anything I write you're welcome to post a comment or get in touch with me. When I'm not blogging, I write a little, garden a little less, drink and eat some, exercise when pushed, talk for Wales and think about the grandchildren. Well that's me. Gorseinonboy.
