la pause-cafe

Well, here's something I haven't got in the book. The importance of 'la pause-cafe', or coffee break, in France. And our poor correspondent didn't realise for two years what she was doing wrong. When you're the outsider isn't it often like that? People just let you muddle on until you realise that it's not your shocking personal hygeine or terrible jokes that's to blame for the fact that nobody talks to you.
I'm glad to see that she ties in with my advice about toasts and business cards, though.
