Marriage 101, Lecture 832: The Ugly American

SH: There's no ice machine in this hotel.

Me: Rats.

SH: We could get some from the bar.

Me: OK.

SH: I don't want to ask.

Me: Why not?

SH: Because it seems so American.

Me: We are American.

This is normally played out chez moi when driving and the need to ask for instructions!

But I'm not sure asking for ice is an American thing to be honest....you'd get away with it!
