Granted we should always be welcoming to tourists visiting our country but it’s ok to have a little fun with this. Huffington Post Canada asked Canadians and these are some of the best answers…
“I have a friend in Toronto, do you know Dave Smith?
“When I recommended the War Museum, an American tourist said, ‘Canada was in a war?’
“I’ve actually seen American tourists coming across the border in the summer with skis on the roof of their cars.
Apparently there’s some magical line where winter never ends up here.”
“Why, when I insert my American bank card in an ATM machine, does it give me Canadian money?”
“Do you have the 4th of July up here?”
“What time do they turn on the Northern Lights (asked when I worked in Toronto in the tourism sector).”
Back in the ’80s, when I worked at the CN Tower waitressing, I approached my table of American tourists to take their order.
One of them asked me as they looked out the window at Lake Ontario:
“Is that the Pacific Ocean?”
Have you got one?
