It has been said that you can tell what kind of a person someone really is by watching how he treats waiters.

Nope.. you will dragged out by your feet and forced to have each and every meal at the McDonald's on Champs-Elysées. ;-)

P.S. Even though this is July, the daytime temperatures in Central Europe bounce up and down between 33C and 15C.
I would reconsider not bringing one single piece of clothes for a coolish night.

The temperature on the street yesterday in Paris was more like 41° C (106° F), which is about 25° F above "normal."

Anyone who dresses up to eat in a restaurant at that temperature (and many restaurants, including fancy ones, have no air conditioning) may receive the approval of superficial fellow diners but may still end up in the hospital.

But, Miss Thing, you have to learn to dress appropriately for your venue.

You don't wear a mink coat whilst playing tennis do you?

Then why would you wear jeans, trainers, and a t-shirt to a place like Violon d'Ingres?

Would you wear jeans and tainers to someone's weddding?

If you would, you are a horrid boor.

I'm surprised that some of you bathe.
