I’m beginning to think that some French people are either particularly bad mannered or think that politeness does not apply when taking the mickey out of a foreigners accent.
Would people take the mickey or imitate so easily someone with a lisp or speech issue? I don’t think so! Why then do they think that I am live bait and that they can take the mickey out of my English accent without it being hurtful? I
’m having a bit of a self confidence blip at the moment and every day people I don’t know imitate my accent. Supposedly it is cute, supposedly I sound just like Jane Birkin but enough already! I don’t have the skin of a rhinoceros and to have to listen to people take the mick out of how I speak almost EVERY day is too much!
