“A few years after my parents got married, but before they had kids, they took a vacation to Paris,” the woman said. My mother collected stamps and wanted some French ones to add to her collection.”

So while her new husband, who was fluent in French, napped in the hotel room, she went to a local post office, planning to spend around $300-$400. She found the post office and queued up for a long time. But when she finally got to the counter, this happened:

“The woman behind the counter told her in perfect English that she didn’t speak English, so my mom waited for another post employee to become free,” wrote the woman.

The Other Worker Was Rude

“The second employee finally became available but was very rude to my mother, telling her that she couldn’t help her, couldn’t sell her this, out of stock of that, etc., while rolling her eyes and being otherwise nasty and rude.”

This terrible treatment almost brought the woman’s mother to tears. And she suspected they were being mean to her because she was American. The woman was really upset. But then she got angry.

She decided she wasn’t going to take this; instead, she would give those rude post office workers a taste of their own medicine. The woman marched back to the hotel, woke up her French-speaking husband, and explained what had happened.

Now he was furious. How dare anyone treat his new wife like that! The pair returned to the post office and waited for the same worker to become available.

Then, using her husband as a translator, she told them she wanted to buy a copy of every stamp and stamp block they had. But first, she wanted to inspect them all.

It Took a Long Time

It took the post office workers nearly an hour to collect and display all the stamps. The deal was almost done. The setup was complete. Now here comes the revenge.

“After the nasty woman had a nice stack of plate blocks for my mother, one of every stamp design they had, my mother turned to my father and said, “Tell her I’ve changed my mind,” shared the woman.

The tables had turned. Now it was the post office worker who felt insulted and embarrassed. The woman and her husband then walked out of the post office to enjoy the rest of their vacation. Perfect.

“As a French person, I approve of your mother’s revenge,” said one user.

“Why does it seem like a sizable proportion of French people do not like Americans?” asked another. “I realize America has many bad stereotypes (some well-deserved), but it seems that France hates us more than most. I’m glad this woman stood up for herself.”
