American soldier does the wrong thing on a train.

Posted November 30, -0001 By Exocet

An American soldier, who had been serving in Afghanistan, had just returned from several weeks of intense action against the Taliban. He had finally been granted leave and was on a train bound for 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 lady and was being used by her little dog. The war weary soldier asked, “Please, ma’am, may I sit in that seat?” The English 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?”
