So it appears my current card is all but useless in Tunisiaah, therefore I need a Visa/Mastercard that can be used internationally and whose funds shall (...) be drawn from a French bank account.

Does anyone know of one which gives airline miles or any other perks ?

I don't know much about crhaadit cards but don't they send a monthly statement that YOU pay with a cheque? If you want to automatically debit an account I think you usually get an Interac card from them that automatically removes the money from your account.

There is an airport in France called (chambery) Challes-Les-Eaux (wich I believe is his hometown), with Challes pronounced as shall (roughly). The joke thus was that he shall (les-eaux) enter the Les-Eaux behind every shall. This changed over time into shall (...).

Thanks for that.

But how on earth is anyone who doesn't know the original story going to figure that, they are just going to think he is a muppet (like I did[do?]!)

Well, back on topic to help the poster out...

Most banks should be able to provide a Visa debit card against your account. It works just like a credit card (as long as it carries the Visa symbol) but deducts the funds directly from your account. Ask your bank, I would be surprised if they don't provide such a card as Visa and Mastercard are recognised pretty much the world over, and debit cards are available with both providers.

As for 'Interac' cards; they are specific to Canada. A bit like 'Switch' and 'Electron' are specific to the UK (or has that now been expanded to Europe?).

It comes from "It appears", transformed over time into "It's a pear". Which in French translate into "C'est une poire".

Actually, the true expression is "will (fool)"

Shame on you.

Can we make a formal request then that UTA or anyone else STOPS putting that damn 'rhaa' or its variations in posts or thread titles.

You honestly don't know how irritating it is. It's not funny, it's not clever! The words 'purile' and 'childish' naturally suggest themselves.

Yeah, they give those to you once you turn 14 in Norway. Can't get a real Visa until you're 18

it was probably funny/cute at first, but even real humor becomes lame when used too often.

31 Nighthawk : have you ever met Will (him)? He actually TALKS like that in real life! Not just occasionally, but 24/7!! Drives you nuts after just 5 minutes!
