This is not going to make any sense except to my friends from Montreal, but Sam's story sounds like a Tim Horton's commercial.

I bet the Canadian had a Tim mug tied to his backpack and the Chinese man was munching on Tim bits.

Some friends of mine were in Italy - Rome no less - and were followed by a large group of people that were not looking "friendly" ... after a couple hours one of my friends went up and asked what they wanted.. they asked if he was from the United States. After saying they were Canadian they all went out for drinks...

A very strange world we live in.
And that is really funny about the Tim Hortons.. haha! But alas - they are owned by the Wendy's Corporation.. so I scratched them off the list of places I eat/shop.

It doesn't just happen to the Canadians/Americans. When i went to the Azores (owned by Portugal), a group of about 8 of us (all roughy, toughy sailors + me) were sat outside a cafe having a nice time and a few beers. After a time a group of local lads turned up and told us we weren't welcome in the Azores until we returned the Falklands to Argentina. We told them to go away and we weren't interested in any trouble. They insisted they weren't going away and were interested in trouble. A few of us then had our chairs pulled from underneath us, so trouble started. The lads who had interrupted our quiet afternoon got a lot more than they bargained for and were soon sorted out. I have been to Lisbon twice though and found the Portugese a really friendly bunch. Some people just use other countries politics to cause fights with individuals who have no real interest in these issues, but in this situation someone had obviously told these lads there were a bunch of Brits in town so they may have been bored youths just looking for a fight, maybe not.

Good point, everyone from all nations have to deal with bigotry. :(

Does anyone on TP actually travel with their Tims mug? Or is that just a little too cheezy now that they had that commercial?
