The train was quite crowded and a U. S. Marine walked the entire length
looking for a seat.

There seemed to be one next to a well-dressed French woman, but when he
got there, he saw it was taken by the woman's poodle. The war-weary
Marine asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"
The French woman sniffed and said to no one in particular, "Americans
are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat."
The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat available
was under that dog. "Please, ma'am.  May I sit down? I'm very tired."

She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"
This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little
dog, tossed it out the train window and sat down.

The woman shrieked, "Someone defend me! Put this American in his place!"

 
An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up. "Sir, you Americans seem
to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the
wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road. And now,
sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bleep out the window.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
