No, they aren't insects coming out for the fetishists among us.

Look, there are rude people in every country, and unfortunately, they are bound to travel at some point. When my wife and I were last in Paris, we sat near two women from Houston who were complaining about how "old and dirty" Paris was. That said, my wife and I are frequent visitors to Paris, and patronize the local shops, spend our dirty dollars there, attempt the language, and get on wonderfully with everyone we meet.

Tell you what, you don't hold the acts of a few boorish Americans against me, and I won't hold the crazy woman from London who lives down the street from me and keeps asking me if I'll let her do a "reading" for me (she thinks she is a fortune teller), against you.

You know, that reminds. I don't understand why I have to learn the language of a country that I'm visiting on vacation. I mean really, I can understand learning a few words to help get around, but I don't understand people getting mad because you can't order in their language in a restaurant. People come to live in this country and don't learn the language and it doesn't bother us all that much. I realy don't feel like having to read a language book or take a class just so I can vacation in France or whatever. What a crock...

I once saw a Japanese porn that featured girls taking big - no, I mean, like fucking BIG, like "OK, there's gotta be like a hidden dispenser or something" big - dumps all over these dudes.

Pubes: pixelated.

Turds: GLORIOUS CLARITY.

I decided to be a good representative for my country, and tried to help them out; so I said to them:
"Where are you trying to get to?"
"Holland"
At this point, I thought to myself, forget it... Better not to ask them how they intend to get to Holland from Knightsbridge underground station, as they may find it rude. However, I think they read the subconscious, bewildered expression on my face, so the man continued,
"Holland Park"
"Ah, well you ought to take the Piccadilly line east to Holborn and then take a Central Line back west to Holland Park"
"But it looks much closer if we change at Green Park and Bond Street"

At this point I gave up, and walked off... I really did not want to get into a discussion about how the Tube map is not to scale or geographically accurate. Not only that, but they would also spend longer waiting for trains. Surely, they would realise that a man with a local accent, in a suit is not going to direct them wrongly, particularly given they were in T-Shirts and Shorts... Hear Hear!

Wonderfully superior post. Great to find you are proud that you know more about the London tube system than tourists.

I think you missed the point being made.

I think the point was the he felt completely justified in being outlandishly dismissive to elderly guests to his country who don't prostrate themselves before him as a font of almighty knowledge, based off the clear assumption that well-dressed men cannot possibly be mistaken. Am I close?

Watering in the evening promotes the growth of fungus, which will kill your lawn. Also, control your damn irrigation system so you are not watering while it is raining.

Park your car in the garage. Why do so many people stuff their garages with years of detritus and park $60,000 in the driveway? Pick up the trash in front of your house. Stop throwing your cigaette butts out of your car. The world is not your ashtray. Nor is it your trash can. Why can you carry that soda can up the mountain in your pack, but the moment it is empty it is now trash and it's mere 1/2 oz. in weight is too much to carry around?
