OH MY GOSH!  I mean really…come on now!  Mummy and Ms. Sandra were walking home from the big flea market this afternoon and passed by a little patisserie where some delightful little confections were displayed in a glass case inside the store.  The case was next to the storefront window for all of the people passing by to see…so of course, Mummy being the photographer she is, pulled out her camera to take a picture of the pretty food.  Within SECONDS one of the employees RACED over to the window and stuck his finger in front of the camera and shook it back and forth to indicate that she WAS NOT allowed to photograph his food!  WHAT THE HECK????  Now I can’t be 100% sure…I’m just a little dog…but I don’t think this pastry chef  is any world renowned chef…known far and wide for his pastries.  It was just a hole-in-the-wall shop…..nothing glamorous AT ALL…sort of rinkydink actually.  But the pastries were in pretty colors and just looked sweet and pretty in the glass case…just very “french like” and Mummy wanted all my friends to see how pretty France is…but THIS French person was not so nice….he should be more proud to show off his work.  Now, when I go back to the flea market…Mummy said even if she was STARVING she wouldn’t stop in his shop.  When you treat people like that…you leave a very bad impression and lose a possible customer for LIFE.  Mummy wasn’t going to buy anything today…but now she will NEVER  buy from him.  So…be nice to people.  Just sayin.

    They were like that when I went as well. It’s like they think we can steal their recipes by LOOKING at the goodies! Laduree did that too, but they asked nicely. I did get some good picks from there though!

    We think this man is pretty “full” of himself. Ms. Millie, perhaps he knew about your cooking skills and thought you were trying to steal his ideas.
    Pffffttttt…..this man does not realize he is dealing with two renowned chefs. Hey sweetie, bring that French oven home and show him a thing or
    two about the “real” art of cooking. You’ve got this sweetie!

    Millie some people are just like that I bet he would do the same to the English Chef Gordon Ramsey . He probably wouldn’t even let him in the door.At least you Mummy got part of it and it is pretty.

    That happened to us in Germany! We stopped at a doll shop and they did the same thing! Needless to say we never went back! They should be proud of their things and should be SUPER HAPPY we want to look , take pics, and touch (minus food) their pretties!!

    LOL Millie – Do you remember I ‘got the finger’ from that women in the Flea market when I went to take a photograph of the pretty bag in the window. So silly!!!! Really…… It does upset you for a moment, but don’t let them spoil your day! 🙁 xx

    And he ruins his chances of future visits by us, because we will ask “Millie, where was the shop we SHOULDN’T patronize?” Tsk Tsk…silly man!
