The French believe they are the biggest moaners in the world, a poll has revealed --and they appear to be rather proud of it.

More than 72 per cent of those surveyed believe they can out-complain any other nation, compared with 17 per cent who thought the Italians held the honour.

Surprisingly, just 3 per cent voted for the British as the greatest whingers.

The principal reason they put forward for all their complaining was: "You have to grumble in life, otherwise you get trampled on."

Only six per cent of the French said they never complained, with the rest regularly turning their anger on bank, shop and restaurant workers.

Staff seem to have no hesitation in answering back, with notoriously unfriendly Parisian waiters among those who admitted to aiming a Gallic shrug at tourists.

The survey suggests the French are continuing a tradition of protest dating back to the French Revolution, with thousands still regularly taking to the streets to make themselves heard.

President Nicolas Sarkozy is viewed as a classically irritable French politician, meanwhile, regularly snipping at people when he goes out in public. Many view the 5ft 5ins head of state as being a Napoleonic type figure, letting off frustration at his lack of inches by being rude to others.

Men are the angriest, according to the survey, with around 20 per cent complaining instinctively in almost any situation. This compares to 16 per cent of women who start moaning without provocation.

While banks and other financial institutions cause a huge amount of anger among the French, 31 per cent of women said their husbands or boyfriends were the biggest cause of irritation.

A staggering 25 per cent of French people even said that they moaned as "a way of relaxing", with retired people generally seen as the most argumentative.

The survey, entitled Are The French Moaners?, polled more than 1,000 French adults and was commissioned by the insurance company Maaf.

最近的一项调查显示:法国人认为法国是一个爱抱怨的国家,法国人则是全球的牢骚冠军。咖啡馆的服务员怒气冲天,另外法国人还喜欢在激烈的争辩当中不懈的耸耸肩,而政府出台的新政策也总是遭到街头抗议。调查发现93%的法国人认为本国人爱抱怨,但是只有37%的受访者承认他们自己爱抱怨。而且年龄越大,牢骚越多,政治家是六旬老人最不满的对象。有将近六分之一的法国人认为生活中你必须抱怨,否则你就会被轻视,另外有不到三分之一的人认为抱怨是因为法国人的性格使然。

老外观点:

法国的朱力安说:“这个新闻太对了,法国人太爱抱怨了,但是我从来不抱怨。在法国人里面,我算抱怨得少的,但是我批判得多。我的批判并不影响我的心情,但是爱抱怨的法国人,他们天天心情不好。所以为什么我不爱回巴黎呢,就是觉得他们整天都是绷着脸干嘛。”
