Parisian waiters are known to be in a league of their own: typically rude, they also are often in a hurry… This seems to alway have been the case, even more than 60 years ago!
Here’s a beautiful black & white video of the Paris of yesteryear. Entitled “Paris waiters can’t wait”, it shows a race of Paris waiters. The goal was of this 1949 race was to be the first to get behind the finish line without dropping anything from the tray.
This was a lovely tradition. Wouldn’t it be great if it was reinstated today?
