Sensitivities over flags…..!
So we are driving through Tralee, Tireland, on Sunday and I say to my Customers……
“Oh there’s your flag again…..flying next to the Irish Flag and the European Flag”
Then I said, jokingly…..
“No sign of the British flag – they don’t like us over here”!
So after a minute one of my Texan friends said…..
“Well that’s wrong anyway”…..
So I had a think and said…..
“Well it’s not dark so it doesn’t have to be lit…..is it the wrong way up”?
“NO” he said “But the US flag should be higher than the other two”!
Great hilarity in the car on my part and I said to them…..
“But we’re in Ireland, not the USA”…..
…..but I’m still not certain my point was taken and I may have inadvertently caused offence…..😳
Knows some of the etiquette over the Stars and Stripes but by no means all…..
Let’s Tour England, and Ireland, and Europe, and the USA…..ooohps no LETS TOUR THE USA…..first!!
