Gracias… I mean Merci!

First day back in Paris after going to San Sebastián for a long weekend and subsisting on “Hola”, “Gracias”, “Buenos Dias/Noches”, “Soy vegetariano” and “Habla usted francais o anglais?” the entire time:

Metro Cop: Bonjour, mademoiselle.
Me: Bonjour! (I hand over my metro ticket.)
Metro Cop: Merci. (He hands back my metro ticket.)
Me: Gracias!! (Staring and smiling straight at him.) Uhh – I mean merci!! (And I run off.)
