well dressed middle aged French woman and the seat was being

sniffed and said, "You Americans. Your are such a rude class
of people. Can't you see my little FiFi is using that seat?"

The American walked away, determined to find a place to
rest, but after another trip down to the end of the train,
found himself again facing the woman with the dog. Again
he asked, "Please, lady. May I sit there?". I'm very tired."
