Lady and her dog



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."
