Why do we say "french leave".
Apparently there is an old french custom of leaving a party without saying goodbye or thanking the hosts. Personally, I think it refers to the even older french custom of deserting from a military force.

Ah yes, Trevor! But they then thanked the hosts by means of a French Letter.

Unlikely,Jolan. The french don't have much experience of such things. After all, what do the french call a pretty girl? A tourist.
