An Italian to her companion, on a train which has just crossed into Switzerland, and which has just jostled about a little. Scornfully. "In Italy, trains don't move about like that." (She says it again, emphatically, a moment later.)
Three people have complimented me on my French in the last day. As my own traveling companion rightly pointed out, they only do so because my spoken French isn't actually all that fluent - it's just obvious that I'm trying hard.
