Ooh La La Foods in Paris--Perhaps the Rudest People I've Never Met

Jump to last reply

So, last night, I was looking through threads regarding cooking classes in Paris. Someone mentioned Ooh La La Foods and gave their website: http://www.paris-cooking-class.com/. Great, I thought, as my stalwarts are undergoing renovations while I'm there. I wasn't able to view a schedule of classes online, so I sent a simple inquiry email asking if there were classes on while I'll be in Paris. I happened to mention that I write a food blog and have traveled all around Europe taking classes. It was for reference, and certainly wasn't meant to be interpreted as a query for a free class. Mind you, the request was written in English.

As such, you can imagine my surprise when I woke up to the email below this morning:

Résolution 2013:

- faire un blog sur tout sujet, poster 3 articles par an et demander de ne pas payer à chaque fois que je dine, dors ou fais quoi que ce soit

- si ça ne marche pas, envoyer un vilain commentaire et me faire rembourser....
______________________________
Translated:

- Make a blog on any topic, post 3 articles per year and ask not to pay every time I dine, sleep or do anything

- If it does not work, send a nasty comment and get a refund ....
______________________________

I don't know if the person was trying to be funny, but this is a total disregard for professionalism in my opinion. I do speak French, so I was able to decipher that snide commentary in about two seconds.

The point is, I'd steer clear of this company. If they can't respond in a polite and friendly manner to a request as simple as their schedule of courses, I shutter to think of what spending a day with them would have been like.
