RE: Funny, but you brought back memories of my wicked French teacher also. nt

what is it with French teachers? I know home economic teacher are famous for being uh, problematic, and my only experience with a French teacher was not good.

I had bought some extremely exotic French bicycle hubs, and all the product information was before the internet, and detailed in French on the box.

So, I got a big bag of fresh Mrs. Fields cookies. a big fad at the time, and went over to the local jr collage to bribe a French teacher into reading me the maintenance instructions on the box, as a favor in return for some nice chocolate chip cookies.

The woman I found looked at me like I had just requested a part of her liver and told me she could easily read the box , but would not , because she charged a minimum of $125 for any translation work. I declined the offer and enjoyed the cookies .

Eventually I found that the only possible maintenance was to expand the hubs in hot sand to remove and replace the sealed bearings. Buy race car parts, get race car problems. Works for bikes too.
