"Short/firm questions for best results" Etiquette Tip by bluedemon21

Etiquette, Paris: 9 reviews and 11 photos

As a Canadian, I am used to a certain amount of effort and courtesy on behalf of customer service related people. I had to push away my "polite" manner to get answers and acknowledged. Firm questions-to the point.
For ex. "How much to the top of the Eiffel Tower"? not...."Excuse me, I was wondering if you could tell me the difference in price between going to the top vs. only to the 1st platform"
Parisiens will sense your weakness...treat them like crap (within reason) before they do it to you. :)

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
