So bad feelings, did they just get worse?
Just so you know, since it's my birthday this saturday, I'm going to put up an extra page then.
He said "Do you think it suits me?"
French fact: the pronouns "Tu" and "Vous" can both be used to refer to a person in the singular (vous is second person plural, usually). 'Tu' is used with people with whom you are familiar with, or friends. 'Vous' is used (in the singular) to maintain a distance between yourself and the subject. Notice how Jacques is using 'tu' with this lady, but he uses 'vous' when talking to Alistair?
I use 'vous' a lot, even with people I know. I think I'm subconsciously maintaining a distance between myself and others. But I only took one psych course, so what do I know?

So...They know each other? I still don´t trust that Jacques isn´t going to do anything.

I don't like the distinction between "tu" and "vous". When I use "vous", I feel inferior to the person I talk to. I am always confused with the parents of my friends. Should I use "tu" to make them my equals/friends or "vous" just because they are old folks. For me, "vous" should be used for great respect and age is does not automatically grant respect. But, I don't want to hurt the feelings of older persons who were raised to believe that elders should be respected no matter what. What a headache!

Well... "Vous" is more of a polite way to speak to a person while "tu" is familiar.

Oh and happy birthday in advance dude! ^^
