You must be a Chef!

I knew it; this would happen sooner or later. To most Americans, French people and only good at two things: Cooking and ladies hair-styling.

So, it was just a bit of a surprise, but no real shock when a Canadian-born skier living in Pennsylvania, riding the chairlift with me, assumed wrongly that I “must be a Chef, right?”
I retorted “Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm neither a Chef nor a Lady hair-stylist.”

It's amazing how folks rely on stereotypes to generate their flawed judgment, as if any Venetian was a gondolier. Get real, America; French people can be everything an American would die to become, and even much, much more!
