Do you butt in line for food..?

the barcelo is getting a lot of reviews with people butting in line at the buffets(mainly french canadians). This seems very alarming to me..

As macdon says. Ignore it. Doesn't have to be French Canadians. Its all nationalities. Have a great trip.

Cheers

I see what martian69 is saying. Yes we should all try to ignore the comments. However is mostly all the reviews where this was said it was directed to the french canadians.

I wouldn't worry about it. Just bud right back :)

Let's not get too politically correct here... our Francophone cousins - God bless them - do tend to ignore lines more than Anglos. That's a simple cultural fact.

No big deal though, simply mention the line forms to the rear or butt right back. With rare exception they take it with good humour.

Cheers,

Terry

"... If you would know how many times I read this on reviews from Cuba..."

================================================

I think that says it all right there. (Unless the multitudes of people who make the observation are imagining it?)

In any case, tranquilo, it's no big deal...

Cheers,
