Something I heard...

I was on the lift with three Americans the other day, the conversation went like this:
A1: "So, is that an iPod you got there?"
Me: "yep, it sure is"
A1: "How is that?"
Me: "it totally rocks" (doing my best Canadian)
A1: "You know it's illegal to use them on the mountains in the US?"
Me: "No, I didn't"
A1: "Yeah, if someone hits you, and you're wearing one of those it's still your fault"
Me: "What if your hearing-impaired?"
A2: "Oh, it's okay, because the disabled wear a sign so you know to give them a wide berth"

WHAT? A sign? What's next, tattoos?

I'm just enjoying the freedom afforded to me by this (lovely) country. The US can enjoy it's lawyers.
