"Of course the Europeans are great because..."

Saymo-saymo in Tokyo, and they drive on the wrong side of the road!
But NYC? Forgettabout-it. With a rental once years ago in Santo Domingo had to drive around a dead horse in the road.

Just thank your lucky stars that you weren't the one that struck and killed the horse.

Driving in foreign countries does have its' hazards. A rental car contract in Turkey had me agreeing to settle any driving disputes in the Islamic Court in Ankara. What a thought. Made me a super careful but nervous driver.

Iíve never lived or visited any place in the world where people drive in such an Entitled fashion as California.

Having driven in both California and Washington for over fifty years , I'm finding that the influx of people/drivers in both states is becoming problematic, especially in large, coastal cities. I've seen clueless drivers in both states ... equally.

Animals on the road

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To show the raccoon and the armadillo that it could be done.
Rimshot please.

Due in March. Need a name for it, and a truck.

If I understand correctly, you didnít have the proper pet documentation at the border, and you ignored requirements to have your dog on a leash in a privately owned business? At least you understand that your behavior is deplorable!

The purpose of this whole thread escapes me . We have taken our dog into Canada on many occasions and never had an issue . Complaining about the border guards enforcing the rules as written does not make me sympathetic to your plight .
I’ve been to Canada over 100 times and never got in an argument with any Canadian , in fact I am not sure that’s even possible unless you say something highly insulting or really stupid !
Glad you found an Escape to your liking

I read the original post as an attempt at being humorous, but based on the last few responses not everyone read it the same way. I think everyone should relax a little bit and maybe next time the OP should use one of those funny emoticons that are available.

I'm thoroughly relaxed, thank you!
