I lived in Germany for 5 years....I can't tell you how many times I heard a US citizen make the comment "I'm an American, I have rights, you can't do that to me."
LOL...seriously, it happens. There are people that just don't seem to realize that once you leave our borders you must abide by the laws of the place you're going to.
Occasionally, it was a source of embarrassment to me.
