Here's an e-mail I received today from a French male higher-up who was making fun of a CV from a candidate I want to join my exciting department. You could take issue with the sexism, but that'd be so early 90s of you. It's the "surmount my last resistances" that makes this win "Non-Anglophone E-mail of the Day"!
>>>>She will know soon that I totally share her centres of interest, especially the horseback riding...sounds great and promising. If she's blond, she'll definitely surmount my last resistances.
