I’m pretty laid back when it comes to things like this, but I know some people that see their arse if they ask for a Coca Cola and get a Pepsi. Not sure why because Pepsi is better anyway, but people don’t seem to like it. I’ve never known anybody go to this length though.

This guy sounds like a bit of a dick, to be honest.

As a result of this pedantic tosspot, Canadian airlines may now be forced to have a French speaking crew member on board every single flight.

Because of lemonade.

Michael Thibodeau is a ‘French language extremist’ that sued Air Canada after he ordered a Sprite, and was given a 7UP. Don’t know why, 7UP is nicer anyway!

Thibodeau said that the cabin crew were ‘malicious, oppressive and reprehensible’ – because they couldn’t answer his questions in French. Even though he actually speaks fluent English.

Thibodeau was actually awarded $8,000 dollars in compensation, before Air Canada appealed and the ruling got overturned. He then took it to the Candaian Supreme Court, where it was ruled that the Official Languages Act doesn’t let citizens sue for being spoken to in the wrong language.
