Not sure if or how this matters so I did not include it in my original post about "Judging National Culture" but I think it is interesting.
Among the many passengers I observed in the airport queue, stealing position from a fellow traveler as the line lurched forward through the labyrinth of belted alleyways, was a Nun in full habit. Although to be clear, I am not so sure she was Italian.
I found this amusing, and even more so, given that three of her colleagues, also in full ceremonial garb, were waiting and watching her progress. I guess if God is watching you should really feel no additional need to conceal your selfish behavior from your Sisters.
