Agree on that....some people are just inexperienced when it comes to travelling but I wouldn't resort to calling them dumb..unless they fall into the Bali 9 mind set

I like people that have stood in line waiting for the initial boarding pass and ID check at the airport and wait until they are before the TSA agent before fumbling to find their wallet which contains their ID.

What? Didn't ya notice what the rest of the folks in front of you were doing? Kills me.

However, blazers are the right thing to wear, not suit jackets. It's a very popular look for the guys in their 20s. Fashion trends, like anything else, change with the times.

I'd much rather see this look than the hideous outfits most wear these days, mostly the men and women in their 40s and 50s who try to look younger but fail miserably! Really, do people have no mirrors anymore?




haha in michigan where i am from if a guy was seen wearing something like that he'd get beat up, and I have never seen anything like that in Miami either thankfully

was in bogotá and a guy was telling me how much bogotá sucks and how dangerous it is because he got mugged. this was coming from the guy who didnt speak a word of spanish, dressed like a dirty vagabond european (im sure you guys know the type of people im talking about), and explained the only thing he was doing was standing and looking up at a hill near an alleyway when someone popped out at him with a knife.

I've seen it at plenty of clubs in South Beach.

You see that in grocery stores a lot, also. People act surprised that they need to produce some kind of payment method AFTER everything is rung up.

Um...no, they're not. For example, right-of-way is totally different than in the U.S. If you're not paying attention to the little diamond signs that change it, you could find yourself in a nasty wreck with someone who DOES know who has the right of way.

U.S. military members and their families (and anyone else working on behalf of the U.S. miltary there) arriving in Germany are given a rather thick study guide to pass the written exam necessary to get a USAREUR driver's license. More than half of those who take it fail the first time.

I spent almost 10 years in Germany and my biggest fear was meeting one of my fellow Americans on a German road.

But, BOT: Freshly arrived in Germany, I rushed down to the local Toom Markt (similar to a Walmart, but smaller building) to buy lots of German candy for friends back home. I put all of my purchases down on the conveyor, paid the cashier and it was only then that I noticed there were no baggers. Everyone brought their own bags to carry their purchases. Luckily, there were some boxes nearby and I loaded the candy into them.

That's the way it is at Aldi stores in the US, and at most Sav-a-Lots, too. Aldi's a German company, though, so maybe that's why.
