An American Veteran Can’t Hold Back When A Snarky Frenchman Slaps Him Down At Customs

People around the world enjoy the opportunity to travel and, at times, they might get to leave their home country and travel abroad. When that is the case, a passport is needed.

That is what leads us to the following joke. It seems that an American veteran who was a retired teacher was trying to visit France. The problem was, that there was a man working in Customs that was giving him a hard time.

If you haven’t had a good laugh in a while, we have a special treat for you. This joke will not only give you a good chuckle, but it will also give you something funny to share with others.

A group of Americans (retired teachers), recently went to France on a tour. Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.

At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry-on bag. “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”

Mr. Whiting replied, “The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show my passport.”

“Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France!”

The elderly American gave the French customs officer a long, hard look. Then he quietly explained:

“Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate your country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchman to show it to.”
