#4 It's been 40-some years, but I remember being in Montreal and asking a store clerk something in English and getting a blank stare - until I said I was American, at which point my question was cheerfully answered, in English. French-speakers had to be binlingual to 'function' but English-speakers did not, which generated animosity.
