If you come to France for a holiday or to live and somone starts to give you problems, then yes, the best advice is to walk away. But sometimes you need to know what they’re saying to you too. One of the hardest things I had to deal with was knowing when I was being made fun of in French. It’s important because it’s easy to get upset for the wrong reasons.

Insult 1: “Tu n’es rien qu’un petit branleur qui n’est bon à rien”
