It’s So Tiring Being French

It’s not easy being French. There’s the grueling 35-hour work week, the mandated rudeness classes, and now it’s getting tough to find a place to enjoy a Gauloises. As of today you can’t smoke in workplaces, schools, airports, hospitals, and other “closed and covered” public places in France. Next year the ban will extend to *gasp* cafes and restaurants. No wonder the country’s health minister is looking into whether workers should be allowed to take a nap while at work. The state-run health insurance provider and the Health Ministry both think it’s a good idea, but for now businesses want to sleep on it before making up their minds.
