S'il Vous Plait et Merci


I saw a photo on Facebook this week.  It was a Parisian chalkboard outside a café.  It said, " Un Café 2 euro. Un café s'il vous plait 1.80 euro!!!  When anyone asks me about  Paris,  I always start with, "Bonjour, merci et s'il vous plait."  It works every time.

These letters brought to you by one of my favorite shops in Paris, MERCI, bien sûr.

Merci
111 boulevard Beaumarchais
75003 Paris

I found out I can get away with a multitude of language skills if I'm polite and just try! Those are the three biggies!
