Yeah, not only that...the conversations are always the same.

LIB: Hey there, I'm (real name)...
Other person: Hi I'm (insert any random name)...who are you on the forum?
LIB: Oh, ehmm, I'm, I'm LIB
Other person: Ohhh, you're LIB?
*fake smile" followed by their hand checking for wallet, followed by a semi silent "Honey, we gotta go"
Other person: Oh, ehm, LIB...it was a pleasure meeting you, but it's getting awefully late and I just remembered that we still have to do our taxes for next year. *fake smile*...

Re: Bertrand's Birthday drink. cancelled

Bonne anniversaire Bertrand. A lot of us speak French, especially after a few drinks. Besides one forumer even runs a pub in GE.

A la prochain/until next time.

Yea, you lot have NOOOOOOOO idea how long the car ride to KFC Colmar was. My husband was whispering about ditching him on the way back! Never again

Happy birthday in advance Bertrand! Hope you have a good one and may this year be full for blessings and good things.

Re: Bertrand's Birthday drink. cancelled

You could go, then leave as soon as you feel like it's too much, most people do that. I doubt that anyone would mind they will just carry on enjoying each other's company and, like you, leave when they've had enough. You don't have to drink alcohol, I don't- one orange juice and leave, tell them that you suddenly remebered taxes to do or something
I am sure that your English is better than the German/ French/Italian of many on this forum. Fake it till you make it! Happy Birthday!

Aw...you poor contrarian you. That's what you get!
I'm sure it's not like what you wrote though...wear it with pride.

Bertrand, hope your bday with the other people were smashingly good! I am sure one day we all meet and it will be just fine...
