I find myself getting mad at ‘foreign diplomats’ when I hear reports from NYC & Washington DC of all the unpaid traffic tickets. I get upset at the arrogance. BUTTTTTTTTT
By happenstance I learned something. Did you know one of our president’s motorcade cars was ticketed/fined (120 pounds)a pretty big chunk in London the last visit. The ‘Beast’ would have been ticketed also, but the car behind was following too close and hid the tag from being photographed. During the briefing on the incident, it was said that American Diplomats have racked up OVER 7 MILLION POUNDS of unpaid traffic violations in London alone. BOY AM I MAD!
(Diplomats should have this tricycle, easy to park, no windshield wiper to put the ticket under)
What that tells me is that diplomats must be a VERY ARROGANT BUNCH OVERALL. So no longer am I going to get upset about the tickets that DC & NYC cannot collect, since our own arrogant diplomats are doing the same thing.
(If a diplomat carried his horse, he could park a long way off and ride back to work)
I thought diplomats were supposed to spread good will and adapt to their assignments by merging into the population. Oh well that is what I get for thinking I guess.
Sometimes I get a little disappointed when I learn things.
Thanks for coming by the log.
The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows. In the Renaissance era, it was fashion to shave them off! I just learned this today. (I am getting much smarter).
