An american ignorance incident happened to me once that I will never forget.

American tourist asking mina:

-Where is the Reichstag?

-You mean Bundestag-Building?

-yes,where Hitler rules.

-Hitler is dead.

-Oh really,I am so sorry.

I thought he was joking first bcoz I couldn't believe what he had said but the I saw his sad face expression when he condoled me for Hitler's death.....

Really? That's absolutely sad and a huge slap to the face to the German people who lost so much to that raving lunatic . Sorry that my country is full of bumbling idiots, that guy probably voted for Bush and Obama twice. Edited by Gaius I. Caesar

Sorry you had to go through that. Most 'Murcans aren't quite that stupid. Most grandparents fought in that war.

:lol: Better than towel heads

Unfortunately he's been called that, too. And a few more besides. I don't regularly check the latest edition of the Big Golden Book of Ethnic Insults, but there were some even I hadn't heard of.

I blush.

I did something similar in Germany. It was my first trip and I was 13. I started talking to an elderly couple and I asked him what he did in the war. Which I later learnt you just don't do. Unsurprisingly, he said that he worked in the Post Office.
