Last weekend Paul and I went shopping for tennis shorts for him. Both the French Embassy and the American school have recreational clubs, and occasionally he will have time to play. Went into the shop that we thought was most likely to have something, and they did – for about $60.00. He asked the employee if he could tell us of anywhere else we could look. The man shrugged and said, "Is that any of my business? I sell what is here. Why would I care what anyone else does?" We realized that it was a dumb question, notions of customer care being rather different here from what we are used to in the States.
