Trinny in Jozi

(Not-so)-friendly conversation XXV

with 4 comments

In the lift at an apartment on The Palm Jumeirah…

American 1: Check out this cigar. It´s from Cuba, so it´s illegal in America!
American 2: Well, as soon as Castro kicks it, Cuba´s gonna be the 51st state!!  
American 3: Yeah – we should take over Canada too!!!

This is why (some) Americans annoy me, to put it politely. It´s also why I want to visit Cuba as soon as possible. 

PS – Anyway, cigars are like so before the credit crunch.

  2. You’re in for a long life of being annoyed because fortunately, inhabitants of other nations are prone to saying very silly things in public spaces. I think it always best to take what three people said in an elevator and apply to millions of people.

  3. Spot on Simon: it takes a wanna be neocolonialist to know one!

  4. And I accept your rebuke, Marian. Am all too guilty of one of those nasty generalisations we were warned against in varsity… Must say though, sarcasm does not become you 😉

    PS – Have changed my the entry to read “some Americans” in deference to my friendship with your usually sweet self.
