[email protected] Posted July 12, 2020 Share Posted July 12, 2020 Our maire has been amazingly helpful to me I have to say. About 7 years ago I got robbed in Italy and arrived back home with no passport, no bank cards, no money in my pocket, no phone, no laptop, nothing, cos it was all in my luggage and rucksack that got stolen (don't ask, I was waiting for my coach in Turin and I took my eye off it for a split second and when I looked back it was gone). He lent me 1000€ to buy a new phone and laptop so I could carry on working and to tide me over until I could get at my bank account again, and ever since then he's kind of taken me under his wing and given me advice when I've needed it. Since I've been out of France he's even kept in touch by phone and text every now and again to check I'm OK. So I'm eternally grateful to him and I do think he is actually a good maire in that he's firm and decisive and has a good business head. But I know there are some who've got on the wrong side of him and are very bitter because rightly or wrongly they feel he's victimised them unfairly, eg pushed them out of their job etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
