Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
My Husband and I just spent a fortune traveling to the Canary Islands which turned out to be a big "holiday" place for the rude, pompous, ugly, fat, British.

We went to five of the Canary Islands and were treated like shit by the British every where we went. They were snobbish ass holes to us even though we were very kind and polite.

One young British cunt was sitting next to us in the restaurant at the hotel and would cover her fucking ears with her hands. My husband and I were talking very quietly like all the other diners.

The snobbish Brits act like the Canary Islands belong to THEM and not the Spanish.

Last year we took our family to Norway for vacation and also noticed that the British we encountered were very rude to us for no reason what so ever. Basically, just being at the same hotel they were in.

The Brits call us fat Americans, etc. But let me tell you, Almost every single one of them were FAT and they all really did have bad teeth and OMG! You should see their feet! The resorts we stayed in were all 5 star so you had to have some money to go there. You'd think these "well to do" Brits would invest in some dentistry and a good pedicure. Yuch.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
BTW. The Canary Islands sucked, mainly because of the British assholes. It took us 2 entire days traveling by plane and it was not worth it at all. I would go to Hawaii any day than to be around those pricks on Holiday.

They were so judgemental. Even the young ones. They would criticize everything. Even the fact that we eat with our right hands.


I was telling my Husband how shocked I was by how rude they were. If those assholes came to America people would be very nice to them and strike up a conversation with them to make them feel welcome and to hear there stories and what they did for a living, etc.

Not these British assholes. They turned their noses up to us every where we went.

If you meet them in ones and twos, they're as nice as anyone else. When they pack-up, they tend to out-do each other in "acting British" for fear of losing class.

Nothing personal towards you, whatever show they put on pretending to be horrified at your very existence was for the sake of their peers.

In ones and twos they're salt of the earth.

Go easy on the Brits,hell they lost their empire. By the 70s their whole way of life became a huge crap fest. They seem to like us Texans or at least want to be us. That's common though...I mean who doesn't?

You won't like this but most Europeans consider Americans to be very loud and rude and to us you are.
It's a cultural thing, not necessarely personal or snobism (although it may be sometimes).
Your table manners are horrible compared to how we are brought up and even if you do make an effort you talk very loud.

I have had some British friends for years at another forum I go to and I love them to pieces and they are hilarious.

I'm still in disbelief at how snobbish and put out they all acted to be around us.

I know American's table manners are horrible compared to how Europeans were raised. I will admit you all have very elegant table manners.

There were also a lot of Germans at the resorts we went to and they were very nice and talkative to us. They all had impeccable table manners as well.

We went to FIVE of the islands and it was just me and my husband. We kept to our selves and never talked loudly.

LOL!!!!I've traveled quite a bit myself, and Americans have nothing to be ashamed of in the table manners department. I've sat next to Belgians, Germans, Brits, French and Spanish, that could all turn one's stomach watching them eat. The brits are big on talking and eating at the same time, and the rest just seem to be shoveling it in (continental style of course). So we eat with our right hands, it tends to slow us down a bit so we don't look as if we're literally shoveling directly from plate to mouth. Get a mirror out and watch yourself eat.

Most of us are no more than 2 generations off the farm, seriously. The loudness is an unconscious carry-over from those days, shouting in the wind, shouting across the field.

My folks were both part AmerIndian, and our house was very quiet--conversation was quiet. A cultural thing. I actually suffer at how loud the majority of my friends are.

It's a cultural thing.

Part of the "rudeness" is a cultural thing, too. People didn't have long to get to know each other travelling thru the prairies/wilderness/forests. You met, you sized each other up quickly, and you became friends on the spot if that was what was in the cards. Open, frank and immediate.

that's carried down thru the generations, for the most part. You'll find that New Englanders are the most European-like of any Americans, as far as being "reserved" goes. They've settled in place longer than anyone else, and that reserve has built up thru generations.

It's not just loudness. My wife is Belgian, my inlaws live there. you Belgians hate Americans more than anyone except possibly the French though they hate everyone. You guys are citizens of little failed nations with no future that will soon probably fracture. You bark alot in an attempt to get attention and console yourselves by calling Americans fat or stupid. We are your favorite scapegoat for all the worlds ills. But we are the first you whine to when you need something. {Libya a good example}I was stationed in Europe for years, I enjoyed every minute I was there but the next time there is a war in Europe I hope we leave your smug ungrateful asses hanging.

Well, we mainly traveled there to see the volcanoes. Not to lounge at the pool. I just thought it would be interesting to talk to other people from others cultures. We were very polite to them.

But I can tell you that if you came to America we would make you feel welcome and wanted. We would probably even buy you a drink.

The Brits made us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. The Germand were nice, the Spanish were ok and the French were rude, arrogant assholes too.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
The Canary Islands are a magnet for people like that, a beacon for the drunken twats that plague our streets every weekend.

There is a culture of ridicule in this country, of actively seeking out things to mock, ridicule and put down in order to make one feel superior or to try and make that person believe that they are so much better, or happier than they actually are.

Naturally not all Brits are like this, you get arseholes everywhere but I do know the kind of people you mean and I have also had my holidays completely ruined by British arseholes myself so I know how you feel.

Sorry on behalf of all decent Brits who do not treat people like this.
