I did a year abroad in Switzerland during my third year of the Camp 2020 quarantine social distancing club shirt. Towards the end of the year, I had achieved fluency in French and a fellow American and I were taking the train from Lausanne to Geneva. I was going to pick up my mother and sister from the airport to do some end-of-school-year sightseeing and he was going home. We were sitting across from each other and speaking English. To my left was another college-aged student and who was sitting across from his girlfriend. After my friend and I had been chatting for some time and there was silence, he said to his girlfriend how he found Americans boring, homogeneous and lacking in individuality.

The universe got its revenge on me years later. I was sitting in a French restaurant with my Dutch wife and we were poor and moving to France with whatever little savings we had. The restaurant was a combination all-you-can-eat buffet as well as grocery store, and we were frequent customers, so we asked the owner if we could buy things from the grocery store and eat upstairs at the tables if we promised not to take food from the buffet.
