Transcript: Euro

 

 

Alors nous avons l'euro en France, euh, depuis deux mille deux, depuis le premier janvier en fait. L'euro est arrivé avant ça, mais euh, on l'a eu entre les mains on a pu payer avec, on a eu des billets et des pièces à partir du premier janvier deux mille deux. Et je me rappelle c'était très bizarre puisque les prix étaient pas du tout les mêmes. Avant, pour acheter, pour aller au cinéma, on payait trente-cinq francs, et euh, en fait, après, bah, c'était euh, à l'époque, je sais pas, peut-être six euros.

Donc ça faisait bizarre; on avait l'impression que tout était moins cher mais c'était qu'une impression puisque il s'est passé l'inverse. C'est que, en fait, on a... la plupart des commerçants ont augmenté leur prixs et en fait, on s'est... on s'est un petit peu fait avoir sur ce plan-là. Mais en tout cas, c'était assez, je me rappelle, j'étais avec des amis le... pour le trente-et-un deux mille un et en fait, le lendemain on s'est retrouvé avec nos petits sachets plastiques avec des... on avait acheté des sachets plastiques avec des pièces d'euros et on était contents, on les regardait, 'fin, c'était, c'était assez marrant.
