  Actually they are no less, nor more rude than anyone else. My French is just school French. I and the French shop and café people I "worked" with (as a customer) had a wonderful time! We laughed a lot and they taught me a lot. I loved the entire experience. Though the most widely used language, at least in the West, it would be a great pity if it replaced others. To expect people to speak your language and you not even try to speak theirs is arrogance in the extreme. After all when they come to your country they make the effort. Join in, its lots of fun!
