A US marine stationed in France returning to base, is wandering through the train carriages looking for a an empty seat, the only one he finds is occupied by a little French poodle, he approached the woman and asks “Excuse me ma’am, could I please take that seat?”
The woman replied: “You Americans are so rude, my little Fifi is sitting there, find another.”
The marine wanders the entire length of the train again and can find no empty seats, so he returns to the lady with the dog.
“Excuse me ma’am, I really need to sit down, I’ve been travelling for 18 hours, I am really tired, I really need to sit down, please can you move your dog and let me take that seat.”
This time she replies, “Not only are you Americans rude, you are so arrogant too, no, my little Fifi needs that seat, go find another.”
The marine doe one more circuit of the train in desperation, and finding no other seat returns to the carriage picks the dog up and throws it out of the window.
“You awful terrible man”, The woman cries, and to her travelling companions declares “Will no-one defend my honour?”
An Englishman stands up and addresses the marine. “You Americans are always doing things wrong, you eat with knife and fork in the wrong hand, you drive on the wrong side of the road, and now Sir, it appears you have thrown the wrong bitch off the train”
