I was wandering along a busy London street earlier today and saw some woman frantically waving at the black cabs that raced past her and becoming more and more frustrated as they didn't stop. Why doesn't anyone tell these dozy people that they are only for hire if the light is on - it doesn't matter how hard you wave and scream at them? Another story relates to 3 American 'Golden Girls' on the train back from Windsor who had obviously been looking around the castle as they were looking at the lavish brochure thay had bought. One of them said in a deep Southern drawl "This is a picture of the Queen's saloon" to which her friend answered "That's one hell of a saloon, it's so big you can't even see the bar". So I thought I would share these with you to get the ball rolling and wondered if you had any good tourist stories that put a smile on your face and made your day a little bit brighter laughing at the niaiveity, or in some cases, plain stupidity, of others.
