Sorry, If Im posting a lot of French stuff today, its just that I have a Test tomorrow on all of this, so Im trying to get myself prepared.
Professions in French --- I want to know exactly what the professions mean, so I dont get them mixed up anyhow.
Un Pharmacien - That would be a Pharmacist
Un Commerçant - That would be a shopkeeper.
( What exactly does a shopkeeper do? Like it has only one category of things?)
Un boulanger - That would be a baker. I thought that a baker made cakes, but that was a Patissiere that did. So a boulanger just makes bread?
Un boucher - That's a butcher. So that would be a deli owner.?
Un Patissier - Pastry store owner. The person that sells all those goods. Like a cake.
Un charcutier - Delicatessen owner.
(I keep getting this and the boucher mixed up. What is the difference?)
Un fleuriste - Florist
Un caissier - Cashier

un commerçant = merchant, dealer (simply means he sells something)
un boulanger = right, bakes bread
un boucher = butcher but there are speciality butchers also; for example le charcutier = pork butcher (see your later vocabulary word)
un patissier = pastry cook, proprietor of a pastry shop
Here's a fun website on "les métiers" = just put your mouse over a drawing to see the job each one does:
