He gets on my nerves with his "My good man" and "My good Germaine". What gives him the right to speak to me like that? After all he's nothing but a grocer made rich by canned food! What "My good man" means is "My good BROKE man, if you live it's thanks to me, thanks to the money I made in canned food. Be kind, my good Maurice, here's your doggie sugar"...
"Poussez, poussez l'escarpolette"
