(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.

After work drinks…

A: I remember when I went to the US when I was really young… I visited Disneyland and ate a lot of flapjacks.
B: But you can´t say “flapjacks”.
C: Why not? Does “flapjack” have some secret gay meaning I don´t know about?
B: No, it´s just not our style. None of those Americanisms! We say “pancakes” here.
C: Well, actually, if we´re talking about pancakes in the US, we say “crêpes”.
