Beautiful , thin, young people are treated better...in Europe

When travelling if you are beautiful, thin, well-dressed, and young you will have less problems when travelling in Europe and around the world. Doors wil open up, you will get better service at Hotels, Airlines, taxis, people will not try to steal from you, and the locals will embrace you...
If you are ugly and fat, you will have not have such a good time...people will not treat you very well...

You Troll haters:
You are angry because you know it is true, because you are ugly, fat and old, and only stick to turist areas, and people laugh at you as you sip your coffee in Paris pretending to be European...pretending to fit in...pretending to be an intellectual...posing and laughing at other turists who do not pretend they are something they are not

Before you try to flaunt your superiority that lies only in your teenaged imagination, learn to spell. It defeats your attempt when you misspell simple English words.

Being an intellectual poser, it pains me to quote Judge Judy, but she put it best: beauty fades, dumb is forever

What is your problem? I'm not fat, but I'm not thin either, not young, call me middle aged, and when I travel I use a cane for a jacked up knee and dress for comfort, and can truthfully say that people are so nice and considerate everywhere we've been (even Paris)that I believe that even if what you say is true, Europeans must have great respect for their elders, thats what you'd think of me. And I get treated great wherever I go. I can't tell if you're bitter or just hateful. Whatever, do yourself a favor and stay away from us not thin young and welldressed tourists.

It's a cruel world Catwalk.

Remember though - beauty can be a burden.

I am none of the above and have always been treated pretty decent in Europe. You must be confused and may be referring to your own standards.....

Catwalk,

Those fellas who are being so decent to you because you are young, thin and beautiful? They just want to screw you. Sorry to have to shatter your world.

We older, I mean senior, I mean elderly, I mean distinguished individuals who are a bit heavy, I mean broad, I mean chubby, call the people catwalk is referring to as "Flockharts".

I am extremely perturbed at this misuse of my name.

And I am even MORE perturbed that someone didnt get the reference!

Now back to fixing my spaghetto dinner. Do some people actually eat more than one of these things?

Love,

Allie
