Independent From This Holiday

| UK | Right | July 4, 2017

(I’m waiting in line behind an American customer who is exchanging idle chit-chat with the worker processing the transaction.)

Customer: “Do you know what tomorrow is?”

Worker: “Erm…” *looking at her till* “The fourth.”

Customer: “No! Independence Day!

Worker: “Oh, yeah.” *continues with transaction*

Customer: “Why don’t you have any banners or sales on? In America, we go crazy for it! Show some pride!”

Worker: “We don’t celebrate Independence Day here.”

Customer: *gasps* “Why not?!”

Customer: “…because we were the enemy?”
