    During WW II an American soldier had been on the front
    lines in Europe for three months, when he was finally
    given a week of R&R. He caught a supply boat to a supply
    base in the south of England, then caught a train to
    London. The train was extremely crowded and he could not
    find a seat. He was dead on his feet and walked the
    length of the train looking for any place to sit down.

    Finally he found a compartment with seats facing each
    other; there was room for two people on each seat. On
    one side sat only a proper looking, older British lady,
    with a small dog sitting in the empty seat beside her.

    "Could I please sit in that seat?" he asked.

    The lady was insulted. "You bloody Americans are so
    rude", she said, "can't you see my dog is sitting

    He walked through the train once more and still could
    not find a seat. He found himself back at the same

    "Lady I love dogs - have a couple at home - so I would
    be glad to hold your dog if I can sit down", he said.

    The lady replied, "You Americans are not only rude you
    are arrogant".

    He leaned against the wall for a time, but was so tired
    he finally said,

    "Lady, I've been on the front lines in Europe for three
    months with not a decent rest for all that time. Could I
    please sit there and hold your dog?"

    The lady replied, "You Americans are not only rude and
    arrogant, you are also obnoxious."

    With that comment, the soldier calmly stepped in, picked
    up the dog, threw it out the window, and sat down.

    The lady was speechless.

    An older, neatly dressed Englishman sitting across on
    the other seat spoke up. "Young man, I do not know if
    all you Americans fit the lady's description of you or
    not. But I do know that you Americans do a lot of things
    wrong. You drive on the wrong side of the road, you hold
    your fork with the wrong hand, and now you have just
    thrown the wrong ***** out of the window."
