Fair play, and it surely helps a lot.

Wow... better declare war. From a French cultural perspective, there is nothing ruder you can do to them. Besides, I believe it's illegal in France to take a picture of someone without his/her consentment. Finally, should things really go sour, these types of recordings are not accepted as evidence in court.
