Wish I’d written this (shamelessly stolen from the Thorn Tree Message Board

1 October 2004


We were in line to buy tickets at Monte Alban in Oaxaca. At the front of the line there was an incredibly loud and rude college kid screaming repeatedly at the ticket taker in English: “I’M AN AMERICAN STUDENT! I GET A DISCOUNT!” The ticket taker just kept looking at him saying “No entiendo.” This guy shouted at her for 10 minutes or so, until he finally gave up. When it was my turn, I spoke to the lady in Spanish. She gave me my tickets then pointed to the guy walking away and said, in English, “What a jerk.”
