For the first time since having a French company (or a company anywhere for that matter) I have a rubber stamp.
Whenever anything is official in France it has a rubber stamp. Invoices need to be stamped and when you sign a contract you must stamp it with the “cachet” of the company. Never until today had I used a rubber stamp, so the feeling of finality and importance that the stamp created as it hit the paper was a new experience for me.
No wonder anyone with a little authority in France is so keen on their rubber stamps! I can now understand why the bureaucrats get so carried away with the need to stamp everything. Stamp, stamp, stamp! I practised my stamping to get the degree of ink just perfect and stamped everything in sight! I’ll be fed up of it tomorrow but today I actually feel French!!!
