French Tact

The following is loosely translated from French:

Me: So, what else do you want to ask your American penpals?

10-year old French student: Are you fat?

Me: That’s not a very nice question- and it’s also a stereotype.

French student: Write it, write it!

Me: They’re going to think French students are very impolite.

French student: OK fine. Then put, “Are you fat or thin? We are thin.”
