London.

The train was very crowded, so the soldier walked the length of the

train, looking for an empty seat. The only unoccupied seat was directly

adjacent to a well-dressed middle-aged French lady and was being used by

her little dog. The war weary soldier asked, "Please, ma'am, may I sit in

that seat?" The French woman looked down her nose at the soldier, sniffed

and

said, "You Americans. You are such a rude class of people. Can't you see

my Little Fifi is using that seat?"

The soldier walked away, determined to find a place to rest, but after

another trip down to the end of the train, found himself again facing the

woman with the dog. Again he asked, "Please, lady. May I sit there? I'm

very tired."

The French woman wrinkled her nose and snorted, "You Americans! Not only

are you rude, you are also arrogant. Imagine!" The soldier didn't say

anything else; he leaned over, picked up the little dog, tossed it out

the window of the train and sat down in the empty seat.

The woman shrieked and railed, and demanded that someone defend her and

chastise the soldier.

An English gentleman sitting across the aisle spoke up, "You know, sir,

you

Americans do seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You eat

holding the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong

side of the road. And now, sir, you've thrown the wrong ***** out the

window."

I say pictures of world championship sky diving after the WTC and I think this goes in the same category.

Never the less it made me smile. I like the deeper message of it.

-\tIts in London: he cant kick ass in his own country

-\tHe cant discuss a problem in a decent way

-\tHe attacks the wrong target in a cruel way

-\tThe English man doesnt understand whats happening.
