wildcardjack: I understand Germans are obnoxious at resorts. Something to do with claiming pool side lounges by putting towels down before breakfast. They might be able to cow europeans, but Americans are used to taking over previously claimed territory that appears abandoned.


They don't put out towels before breakfast, they do it the night before. We always used to stop and piss on them when we were stumbling home at 4 in the morning.

We stopped after watching a German porno though, because we realised they had probably been enjoying it all along.

I went to Japan once and got so farked up on shochu that I passed out in a pile of my own puke.  Woke up a few hours later, realised I was covered in puke and couldn't go back to the ryoken like that, so stumbled in a laundromat, stripped down to my underwear and put everything in the wash.

It took a while to wash and dry the clothes, but that was all good because they had a beer vending machine just outside. A few people came to the laundromat, saw me sipping beer in my jocks and just noped back out the door.

Anyway, clothes all clean, finally stumbled back to my room and thought I was home scot free. Woke up the next morning with my face stuck to the tatami mat with dried puke though.

*sad face*

Went to book in the same inn the next year, and the bastards said they don't allow Australians. farking racist coonts.

Just in case the locals mistook them for Americans, Brits or Australians, the small group was "covered in maple leafs."

Canadians -- do you guys always use the term "leafs" instead of "leaves" when referring to multiples of your country's symbol? Because I really want to imagine a group of people walking around covered in Toronto hockey players.

They are angry.

Because they have no self identity. Canadians do not get to just 'be Canadian'. Everything they are is constantly compared to Americans.

So their identity becomes that of "well.... we aren't Americans.." followed by whatever half-baked theory they have about what makes them better than and separate from the Americans.

Basically, it boils down to "Marsha, Marsha Marsha!"

moeburn: I'm a Canadian, and I tried to go on vacation to France once.  The rural French would just ask us "Where are you from?" and then, after being told "Canada", would let out a relieved "Oh thank GOD".

The Parisians, on the other hand, simply did not believe us.  Apparently so many Americans had come to Paris pretending to be Canadian, that they now just assume all english-speaking people with a North-American accent were from USA.

I also learned that French people like to "smoke out" tourists.  On 3 separate occasions we tried to eat at a restaurant, only to have every single Frenchie in the entire seating area light up a cig at once.

Oh, and people tried to pickpocket us 5 different times in the one week we spent in Paris.

fark France.


You posted almost the same story on reddit and nobody believed you there either, do you think other sites are dumber?

Try 4/Chan that's more you're trolling ability.

Gunny Highway: real_headhoncho: Are you sure those are not Americans pretending to be Canadians when they travel?

I noticed Brisitish people asking me if I was Canadian the few times I was over there.  I have no idea why but I assume Canadians probably get offended if you ask if they are Americans, and the opposite isnt true, so they play it safe and ask everyone if they are Canadian.


Absolutely.  You never ask someone if they're American.  It's like asking a woman if she's pregnant.  Always, always assume she isn't until she TELLS you.

Whenever I go overseas while pretending to be Canadian I always make up some fake custom to perpetuate. Keeps foreigners on their toes. Oh you guys don't kiss your wait staff on the cheek after a meal? Oh my bad. I guess that's just a Canada-only thing.

You don't even understand the half of the hatred towards America that exists in Canada.

The day after the September 11th attacks, everywhere people were saying like "fark those Americans" and "they deserved to die" and "that's what they get for being American".  Everyone, whether they were white rich people or poor minorities, truly jumped for joy after 9/11.  They just stopped short of burning flags in the streets.

plushpuppy: Benevolent Misanthrope: Not even close, subs.  Let's face it - our state department doesn't have to tell us to pretend to be another nationality when we travel abroad.

real_headhoncho: Are you sure those are not Americans pretending to be Canadians when they travel?

I wouldn't be surprised.  I also wouldn't be surprised if they were residents of Ontario or Quebec, which are far more tightly tied to the US, in many ways.  If an Albertan acted like that, his compatriots would shut him up and board check him later.

Albertans are rednecks


BCers are hippy wannnabes.
