American Madness - Part III

Americans love their big cars and they don't come much bigger than a Hummer.

I was fascinated at the sight of one of these beasts when it pulled up outside my hotel. It was black and the alloys gleamed.

The driver of the Hummer got out and it was obvious why he owned a Hummer - he was only 5' 0" in height (if that). He opened the rear passenger's door and took out a stool. Nothing odd in that so far. However, he proceeded to set the stool down at the back of the Hummer and stood on it in order to open the boot!

Now, I'm sorry... having to carry a stool around with you so that you can reach the handle of your boot sounds like the car isn't practical!
