 Yes, Douglas, the local courtesies can be tricky. I try to keep my mouth shut and  follow my hosts' lead . Otherwise, I know please & thank you wherever I am. That can get you miles of   friendliness.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

I try to be polite also.

I told my Australian friends and hosts about the directions incident and they were horrified that an Australian could be so rude to me. I think the chap was having a bad day and I was his easiest target. He lectured me like I was a little ten year old school boy.


I was on a Sydney bus and asked the driver for directions.  This next part is hard to believe.  The driver actually went three blocks off his designated route and drove the bus full of people to my destination and let me off.  Of course I thanked him.

Once at a restaurant I asked the waitress if she would please package my leftovers...you know, some odd scraps.  Later at home I opened the box and much to my delight she had packed me a complete fresh meal.

Oh! I just thought of a couple of other crazy-ish things I've done in public. They happened around 4 or so years ago when I was visiting Canada with the chorus and band students to see Phantom of the Opera.
The first thing was when we first got there we went to the rainforest cafe for lunch and I immediately got my camera out when we got our food and took a picture of my burger, because it was a "Canadian burger". Before we left the restaurant we got some stuff from the gift shop there, as we were paying for our stuff me and my friends were going bandannas over the change we got because it was Canadian money and we were really excited. Me and my one friend went to the bus and our other friend was still in line when she got on she told us that as we were walking out the 2 girls who were working there started talking to each other saying how they loved Americans 'cause we were so funny or something. We all just laughed and got even more excited. Also all throughout the day we were wondering who was Canadian and who wasn't, but never actually asked anyone. But when we were at this science museum place and we were in another gift shop and we heard a person say "ehy" or however its spelt and we just got so excited...again. The only time all day that we heard that, made us kinda bummed...that and we never got to see any Mountie's...although we dud see a wooden one on a sidewalk and I almost took a pic of it. But when we were at the theater there was this one kid sitting in front of us (as he was looking for his seat he went past it 'cause he was to busy looking at me and my 2 friends) we got his attention and them asked him if he was Canadian...he wasn't.

This last one isn't something I did while in Canada just something weird and kinda freaky that happened on the way back. It was the middle of the night (or really early morning) and we were at a rest stop and while everyone was getting back on and what not this one kid got on our bus and he had a video camera on and as he walked up and down the isle he got everyone on camera and then he got off and apparently the same thing happened on the other buses. I didn't really thick anything of it at the time just thought he was a kid from another bus and didn't get a good look at him, it turns out as we all learned when we got back from our principal before we got off the buses at 4 in the morning that he was actually like a 20 something person who know one knew and got on all the buses!

I sang "I Will Survive" on the Bank waiting-room. It was full of people and really quiet. I was listening in my iPod and didn't know everyone was listening to me. I though it was embarassing.  :-[

My family owns a guest house, and I don't like people staying. A woman knocked at the door and I told her I was sorry, but we didn't have rooms for the night. I had a bag of about ten sandwiches in my hand, but I hate my mother's sandwiches because she puts the butter on about an inch thick. My mother then asked me who had been at the door when I closed it, and I said it was a woman but I'd told her we had no room. I was also looking for a quick way to get rid of the sandwiches. My mother ordered me to run after the woman and tell her that we do have room. So I run, arms and legs flailing, after the poor woman, who was halfway up the street, and I was screaming and waving sandwiches. They went everywhere, on the floor, on the bonnets and windscreens of people's cars, and, aided by me, also found their way into the gutter, and the hair of shocked onlookers. The woman did not come back.

Good. I recently smashed a teapot in the stone floor of the hall. It was 9:00am, and I had to waitress, which I do not like doing. So I told my mother, "if you do not let me go upstairs, I shall smash this teapot in protest." She didn't let me go.

I laughed at both of those, BeautifulAnastasia! You seem to be a dramatic person! :D TroubleTwin2, I agree with you!

These are all so entertaining.
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...
And when you are hungry or thirsty, there is someone who drives you away.

Well to date - about two hours ago, I raved and ranted in the backyard, in my slippers, with my hair a mess and me looking like thunder, with foam coming out of my mouth!
I was raging at two men in my family.
It's hard being the only female.

Wow, Lindelle, you're the only female?? I imagine how hard it is!!!  In my house, There is my Grandmother, my dad, my mother, me and my little sister, which makes dad the only male. He wanted a son very much, so he wouldn't be so lonely, but he got two daughters! And I think they won't have any more childen... Sometimes we make him do what we want, poor dad! My mom is very hard on him, and he never complains.

Haha, Lady you and me have almost the same living situation, but instead of a little sister, I have a little brother!

It's not so bad Lady.
I have three boys.
25 year old is a teacher, the one that needs to buy a new car 'cause he brings it round to us all the time, nearly every weekend to be fixed. He lives around the corner with his girlfriend, a little too close to us.

21 year old is in finance and recently moved back home to save money so he can buy a house in five years time. OMG he's with us for another FIVE years is what my husband says.

And the baby, 18 year old who's a fireman. He's very career minded and we think he'll be with us for a few more years.

At the evening meal there's always talk about sport and guy things, I've no clue as to what they're talking about so I get shitty with them but don't say anything.

My future daughter-in-law is a lovely girl but I don't see her that much as she's young and busy.
So without any other female in the house, no wonder I sometimes look stressed.

I do love my boys dearly, would never be without them.
