      Don't wreck our image, I like to shock everyone about not being able to get from one Igloo to the other unless we have snowshoes strapped on our feet. But we've progressed ans now build modern highrises out of snow and ice too and call them H-ighloos.... don't ya just lov'em, eh

        I am mystified as to the Great Love of Tim Horton's I find everywhere I travel in Canada...

        Actually, not everywhere. In Qu├ębec they do not dominate the market. Could it have something to do with Quebeckers' superior tastebuds? (Only half-joking!)

    I'm a Canuck, and I *have* to share my stereotyping story with you guys!

    I used to work as a room attendant at a hotel, some years ago. We had this cart full of our supplies that we wheeled along with us, and parked right in front of the room doors.  There was this convention in town, and many of it' guests were staying at this hotel.  Oil company owners and workers, I think. There were a lot of very typical Dallas-Soap-Opera types there: powder-pastel suits, ten gallon hats, bolo ties, snake skin boots, and thick southern drawl.

    This was in July, in Ottawa... when it was some 30 celsius out in the shade.

    I'm standing at my cart, picking out what I need for the room I'm working on, and these two guys come back to their rooms on either side of mine.  Pastel suits and everything.  They have skiing equipment with them.  In July.  One of them is trying his key-card on his door, and it's not working.  He says to his buddy: "Hey, mine don't work, does yours?" and his buddy says: "Yup, mine works.  Maybe you can get that pretty lady to let you in. Does she speak english?" 

    Naturally, all Canadians speak French as well as English.  It's in the rulebook, right?  With my total butchery of the french language, I just HAD to do it....

    I make like I don't understand when the first guy asks me something.  He whips out his french-english dictionary and says, very slowly, something that sounds like: "Parless voos le frankase?" So, I said yes.  Then, when he laboriously asked me how to fix his keycard, I spewed a bunch of rubbish that would have translated into something like "the purple puppy sits on the toilet on the roof of the hotel, go there."

    He's flipping furiously through his dictionary, with a confused look on his face. 

    After a while, I just said: "You know, if you'd asked me in english, I'd have answered you back properly the first time. You go to the front office to have them reissue you a card."

    Good thing he laughed... cause if he complained, I might have gotten canned then and there.  lol

    Oh, and he put his skis away. big_smile

    1. Frugal Fanny profile image62
      Frugal Fannyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I used to like Degrassi when I was knee-high to a grasshopper, eh?  I was like: "Sweet". But then, it got all lame and stuff, and then I was like: "Whatever".  But then, when my bff said she didn't like the new Degrassi shows because they were all just 80's throwbacks, I was like: "I know, right?"

      lol
      Know what I mean, eh?

      They just showed up at the shack late last night.  They were down to 3 Molson and 2 Blue...asked if I had a jerry can so they could syphon some gas to start a fire on the road to dry their boots out.

      I said sure, come on in...grabbed the chainsaw, got them some wood - handed Bob the jerrycan and asked Dougy to make sure they didn't fall asleep out there and burn up their snowmachne suits (those neopreens leave Nasty burns) - they had drank all but one Molson by this time; offered the last one to me and I said heck, just take this bottle of Glava - yous need it more than me!

      So...they are well enough - I brought them out eggs and toast in the morning but they were already gone.  Could see they had one hell of a time though - partridge feathers EVERYwhere....

      Lemme know if you see them soon, k?

    No we don't live in igloos

    (But the kewl part is we CAN if we want too!)

    Yes we get cable TV

    (We also get satellite TV and Internet TV - even in the igloo, if we want!)

    Yes we drink beer but not as much as .....well, yes we do

    (We don't Need to drink as much beer because our beer is Strong and your (usa) is like water.  You get fatter, we don't)  :}

    No, there is not snow all year round

    (Nope, only for 7 months where I am)

    and no, we are not all either Eskimos or Indians

    (OR Quebec-ers EITHER!)

    But we are friendly

    (We sure are - and rather apathetic which is why the whole world loves us so much!)

      We also wear long-underwear because we are Smart.  We wear toques, not *hats*, and we wear *gitch* - not underpants. (don't get those 2 confused please!)

      Our men lace up their boots only to work or to fight.  Most of us like hockey a lot.  We get awesome free medical care with our high taxes (SO worth it!) and 90% of our country is still wild!

    Well, even the parts with people are wild.  Our Military has Rocked in every war, but the USA news refuses to acknowledge us at ALL - except to make fun of us...mainly that we are all *uneducated, drunk, stupid and think the red green show is REAL!

    Our Doctors and Nurses are great.  We have unsurpassed help/aid for those in need and therapy/aid for every family (NOONE gets left out).  - all (again) FREE.  Only France can surpass our social policies.  It's one for all and all for one.  And even Quebec sees that! If the poloticians would leave them alone and stop trying to rip them out of the country, all would be well.

    Maybe they will - whenien Bouchard got the horrific flesh eating
    disease while trying to rip the country apart - well.....He moved to FLORIDA! LOL
     
    I Loved my visits to QC - it is SO beautiful! - Like the rest of this great land - awesome beauty!

    Canadians ROCK!  I LOVE CANADA!  The TRUE North Strong and Free.

    IMO, Canada is the best country in the world to live in and having been all over the world, I know home is best.  A lot of Europe has class and style; grace and history.  I *might* choose France or Iceland second choices.  Love London but too crowded for me.  Nope.

    It's Canada for me and yep - the whole world loves us (except maybe the usa when we don't cave in and send them everything for nothing) - like our water, trees, natural gas and all our many natural resources.  We gave/still give the USA so much for free that now they seem to Expect it and want MORE - All FREE.

    Try and strong arm us will ya!?

    Not very neighbourly now is it?

    I think I'll draw a line through the USA and make all those tiny little states - say - 9 provinces.  See how they handle that for awhile! :}

    Lol - all in good humor people.  Don't get all mean on me! "}
