I started to watch Direct8's programme, Le Championnat de France des Râleurs on Youtube but it's too long and there's too much strong language.
But râler is a phenomenon worth mentioning.
It's when you turn "Victor Meldrew" and it all comes out.
It's an adult tantrum.
It's when you throw a hissy-fit.
It's throwing your toys from thr pram.
It's when you say "Could you give me a hand with this, please ?" and suddenly World War 3 breaks out.
The fact that there's so many ways of expressing this in English indicates that the Brits do it too.
