French train désastre - the real truth

You may have heard the news, reported gleefully by the American press, that France's railway service just received hundreds of new train cars that -- zut alors! -- are 8 inches too wide for over a thousand stations.

There's been a lot of finger pointing going on in France right now, but, having spent years trying to learn French, I think I know the real explanation of how the inexplicable could've happened: Someone got confused because the paperwork was...in French!

Happens to the best of us.
