An obnoxious tourist was taking a taxi through London. As they went by the Tower of London the taxi driver explained what it was and that construction of it took around 20 years.
The tourist replied: “Shoot, a little old tower like that? Back in my country we’d have that thing up in two weeks!”
Next they passed the Houses of Parliament building and the driver once again told the tourist how long it took to complete.
“Well, we put up a bigger one than that in my country and it only took a year!” the tourist replied.
As they passed Westminster Abbey the driver was silent.
“Wow! What’s that over there?” asked the tourist.
The driver shrugged: “I don’t know, it wasn’t there yesterday.”
