    Default French visit

    An elderly British gentleman of 83 arrived in Paris by plane. At the French check in desk, the man took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry-on bag. "You have been to France before, Monsieur?" the Immigration officer asked, sarcastically. The elderly gentleman admitted he had been to France previously. "Then you should know well enough to have your passport ready." The British gentleman says, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it." "Impossible. The British always have to show their passports on arrival in France!" The elderly gentleman gave the French Immigration Officer a long hard look. Then he quietly explained; "Well, the last time I was here, I came ashore on Juno Beach on D-Day in June 1944, and I couldn't find any ****ing Frenchmen to show it to."

    Not a bad joke, seen it before and it's been my impression that the French in general have hated the British for several hundred years
    However, iirc, and I'm not sure what beach they landed on, there were french commandos in the thick of it on D day.

    Surely he'd go to passport control rather than checkin?
