WHY I WAS CALLED A "FUCKIN MAPLE LEAF" YESTERDAY

  1. I'm in Scotland on exchange for the semester
  2. it's been great!!!!!!
  3. last night we went out and got fairly drunk (as one does in Scotland)
  4. at around 3 am we left the pub we were drinking at in search for food
  5. little did we know that this would be a massive ordeal
    as in ZERO restaurants open except for ONE McDonalds
  6. we get to this mcdonalds and there is a line to get in, complete with a bouncer
  7. just as we were about to get in, a group of drunk guys tried to butt us in line
  8. I VERY KINDLY pointed out that the queue starts down the block
  9. they asked me (rather aggressively I might add) where I was from
  10. I happily responded "Canada!"
  11. and they not so happily responded "fuck you, you fucking maple leaf, we're from here"
  12. and I said something along the lines of "that's great! but there's a line"
  13. this is when I realize I'm about 20 seconds away from getting punched
    my friends also realize this and start to prepare themselves for a real fight
  14. I'd like to point out that I am very small, and I would be destroyed in any serious fight
  15. but luckily the bouncer let us in just in time, and we avoided a fight!
  16. all of this effort was worth it, just for the single and hilariously unimaginative insult "you fucking maple leaf"
