How about, "Can't ya write in American, you cheese eating illiterate surrender monkey?" or "Blow me, si vou plais"
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 9:46:27 AM EDT
Oyeah, something written in French would be better yet ! I'll just do a "copy-n-paste" [:D]

Just send him the "Will ship to US only" quote again.
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 9:58:45 AM EDT
Ya, just repeat the will send to US ony. He hasnt gotten smart with you. And if hes a gun guy then he cant be all that bad. Even though I talk alot of shit about France, they cant all be bad.

I agree. Take the high road. Let him take the first shot if he decides to.
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 10:03:03 AM EDT
I would second the "Will ship only in the US." How you gonna feel if you get a guy from Normandy who actually loves us?
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 10:03:58 AM EDT
No he hasn't gotten smart with me, but he obviously can't read. I get so sick of these stupid questions from people... Questions like: "Is it large pin or small pin" are getting old too... If you don't know that SP1's are large pin, you shouldn't be bidding... I AM a smartass, so the French guy will get a smartass reply... What that reply will be is yet to be determined...

Reply to him, "Why? You're just going to drop it the first time that someone attacks you."
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 10:06:07 AM EDT
[b] Let him take the first shot if he decides to.[/b] uh...he's FRENCH. they don't take ANY shots.

Remind him of your shipping Policy, United States only. Don't go on the defensive, unless he goes on the offensive. The French are in butt kissing mode. After the drop in popularity & tourism by Americans. Why ruin the moment? their actually being nice to us.
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 10:10:27 AM EDT
How about..."Oh you dont want this one, It hasnt been drop tested by the French yet."

While I agree you should just restate your shipping policy (once), I could care less if they are in butt kissing mode. They need to be in full blown oral copulation mode for ten or so lean, hungry years. Maybe that will teach them not to stab their "friends" in the back. This wasn't the first time the frogs tried to screw us. Let them wallow in their own sh*t for a while. Maybe that will convince them to quit electing socialists. Being "nice" to us ain't gonna cut it this time.

I like this one.

Even though I find the French (in general) to be annoying, I do agree with this idea.

While it is the United State's right to own France after kicking Germany's ass and taking it from them, we decided we didn't need a new state full of socialist surrender monkeys on the other side of the Atlantic. As such, France is not included in "Will ship to US only"

i'd just ask "what the hell do YOU want with a rifle? trophies go on shelves...not guns"

He just said he was french. Did he also say he was IN France? I don't see that. Is it the French, or France, that's the problem here. What if he lives in New Jersey? Would you sell it to a French guy living in New Jersey? [;d]

I have no problem with US citizens that happen to be of French descent. If the guy's in Jersey, ship away! Are uppers legal in New Jersey?[;)] Edited to add - from the guy's mail header, he appears to be in Paris. Screw him.

Now I like this one better.

I don't see the need to be an ass to some guy just because he's French. I mean really, being French is enough of a punishment already.
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 11:57:57 AM EDT
Politics be dammned, if he has someone to forward it in the US, take the man's money! Capitalism knows *no* bounds.
