Having researched more deeply into OECD’s Society at a Glance that was the basis for our last post, I am coming to the conclusion that I was born in the wrong country. Is it too late to get French?
When they are not on strike, the French spend almost double the time we Americans do eating and drinking. If you do the math, we are talking almost 10 work-weeks each year. Wait…I made a slight mistake: that’s 10 American work-weeks, which would be more like 12 French work-weeks. For those of you in Rio Linda, that’s 3 months.
They also spend more time sleeping. You would too, after a meal like that.
