Assunto:  What do you think? the customer is not always righ
 
Mensagem:  <<[...] Would, on the other hand, be the consumer in English-speaking countries arrogant and bullying? would be a balance?>>

PP, you might consider rephrasing both of your questions. It seems to me that the object in the first question stands a bit too far apart from the modal. In the second, we can see a question with no object at all.

On the Parisian customer vs. buyer rather paradoxical issue I can't say much. I indeed have heard the French bear a reputation for treating customers rather harshly BUT this stems from ill-formed opinions and misconceptions. Not all French treat people that way though. Talk about my neighbors if they won't talk about you.
