A WW II 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 couldn't find a seat.

Finally he found a compartment with seats facing each other with room for two people on each seat and on one side sat a proper looking older British lady with a small dog in the empty seat beside her. "Could I please sit in that seat?" he asked. The lady replied haughtily, "You Americans are so rude. Can't you see my dog is sitting there"?

"Lady, I love dogs," he said patiently, "I have a couple at home and I'd be glad to hold your dog if I can just sit down." The lady replied "You Americans are not only rude, you are arrogant."

"Lady," he replied wearily, "I've been on the front lines in Europe for three months with no decent rest. Could I please sit there and hold your dog?"

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

And with that comment, the soldier calmly picked up the dog, threw it out the window, and sat down, rendering the lady speechless.

Then an older, elegant Englishman in the compartment spoke up: "Young man, I do not know if all you Americans fit the lady's description, but I do know that you do a lot of things wrong. You drive on the wrong side of the road, you hold your fork in the wrong hand, and now -- you have just thrown the wrong bitch out of the window."
