Uh-huh. Such as the time in Montreal when I asked for a tire gauge in english (not knowing the French for "tire pressure gauge") and was told "I...am...sorry...I...just...arrived...from...Paris...and...don't...know...any...English."

This was so blatant that I lost my temper and replied, "Quelle dommage! Je parle la belle langue mais un peu", turned and walked out. The next gas station was much more hospitable, and I bought two tires there.
