Funny how people can be such inbred jerkoffs. I was just fact checking a piece I just wrote for the BBC's gourmet food magazine and called up the famous fromagerie to confirm the price of their Vacherin. It went something like this (translated from the Frog of course):
"Hello. I'm writing an article for the BBC magazine olive and I'd just like to check the price on a cheese please"
"Ah, let me get you the manager". (in the background, off phone "Patrrrroonn, une magazine veut vous parler")
Another person on the line, most probably Roland Barthélemy: "I'm not interested". Click. The bastard hung up on me! I feel anger at the rude, overrated French artisan who probably likes to BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP
...but, I call back.
"Hello, you just hung up on me."
Him: "I told you I'm not interested. I'm busy". Preparing to hang up.
Me: " You are being rude. And anyway, you're in the article whether you like it or not. If you want correct information published about your establishment, all you have to do is tell me".
Him: "I'm busy". Hangs up.
Luckily there are legions of other fromageries offering comparable quality cheese at much more reasonable prices.
And with friendlier service.
And he is so out of the article.
