Leave it to a Marine to get in trouble again!!!

The train was pretty crowded as a U.S. Marine walked up and down looking for a seat. The only seat open was taken by Joan Blades of and her poodle. The war-weary Marine, asked, “Ma’am, may I have that seat?” She just snorted, looked at him, as if he were dirt and said to no one imparticular, “Military bomb throwing types like you are so rude, can’t you see my little Libby is using that seat.”

The Marine walked the entire train, again, but the only available seat was under that dog. “If you don’t mind ma’am, this is the only seat available, I’m on short leave to see my family and I’m plum tired.” “She looked him up and down and yelled, “Not only are you rude and arrogant but who the hell do you think you are just because you wear a uniform.” “The Marine didn’t say a word, but simply picked up the dog and threw it out the window of the moving train. Miss Blades went hysterical, “Is there not a man on this train who will defend my rights?”

Finally, an English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, “Sir, you Yanks often seem to have an extraordinary penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold your fork in the wrong hand, you drive automobiles on the wrong side of the road, and now sir you seem to have actually thrown the wrong bitch out the window.”
