Get a lot of Yanks when you travel round the Greek islands. God, they just bore me to death; they constantly talk about themselves, eat too much food, waddle about and finish off by saying how hardcore they are and then passing out drunk after half a shandy.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1424342


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. You will be appalled.

I think the resorts we went to attracts a certain type of European dick head. The men even tied their sweaters around their shoulders and tried to act very upper crust.

I can tell you that I have a great body and I go to the gym 5 times a week and eat healthy. I do not eat junk food. I don't ever think I heard a Brit say he/she was on her way to the gym. And you Brits are in worse shape than Americans. Honestly. The Brits I saw were all fat and out of shape. Do you guys even have gyms in Britain?

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.

Well as a matter of fact we do have gyms in the UK and this comment of yours just goes to show how lacking your are in the conversational department.

They say a lot of Americans don't have any clue as to what goes on outside of your own country and you have just proven yourself to be one of those generic definitions, well done.

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.
 Quoting: Nano Bunny


I know they aren't ALL bad! I knew they all had to be of a certain snobbish class.

You sound like a wonderful Brit!

I LOLed and the drunken twats. That's what they were.

My husband and I were kinda chuckling at the young snobbish British gal who was covering her ears and acting APALLED that we ate with our right hand. Miss prim and proper would go take a shit and stink up her hotel room just like every other living human being.

I think the British are kind of reserved. You have to let them come to you. If you force yourself on them, they tend to react with disdain and sarcasm.

Maybe they just felt you were too pushy. Americans often push themselves on people and expect too much of people.

Once they open up and decide to come over to you, they can be pretty friendly and fun.

I like Americans. But some of you guys hold some seriously fucked mindsets and views. I travel a lot, so I know this from firsthand experience (maybe stop drinking that fluoride water...)

Plus, the people who travel to places like the canary islands are normally cunts lol

Much love, op.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1423323


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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1423319


Please don't let that experience make you think we are all like that. The canary islands is considered a "Cheap" place to take a vacation if you're from Europe(cheap flights- a good currency rate)so the type of people that visit,well, you get my drift.

I traveled to the USA for 3 weeks with my gd, and we loved it. There was so much to see and the people were very kind and welcoming.

As I said I enjoyed my time {12 years} in Europe. I know them well at least the Germans and Belgies. 30 years ago they were fine now they are not "mentally" fit to do anything other than bitch amongst themselves and blame the US for the worlds ills. If the German's ever get a hair up their ass,have a flashback to 1939 and march through the Ardennes again..I hope they kick Belgie ass all over the countryside. But even the good ol' krauts have become a bit whiney ,at least the ones in the north.

I went to the Canaries recently and stayed in a very good hotel. There were plenty of Germans, a lot of Spanish and quite a few French; wonderful people, wonderful food in a wonderful location - all-in-all a fantastic holiday.

To be honest I was quite pleased that there were not many Brits around, but not half as pleased that there was not a single over-bearing, loud mouthed asshole demanding attention the whole time I was there… I truly pity your fellow diners!

True story. The third time, the Germans were "held back" long enough for the Americans to get into position.

Not proud of this, but the way it was.

What exercise are you referring to? I was stationed in Germany all during the 80s. This would be news to me.

I'm relating what I was told by a co-worker who'd participated in the exercise--I've no idea what the exercise' name was, sorry.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?

Back in the early 1980's there were war games between US troops/German troops.

The games had to be restarted THREE times, as the Germans had won each time before the exercises had barely begun.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
I think the British are kind of reserved. You have to let them come to you. If you force yourself on them, they tend to react with disdain and sarcasm.

Maybe they just felt you were too pushy. Americans often push themselves on people and expect too much of people.

Once they open up and decide to come over to you, they can be pretty friendly and fun.

We didn't force ourselves on them. We went to two empty seats at the bar and ordered to drinks and smiled at them and laughed with them at their stories. They looked down their noses at us.


In America, if you were sitting at the bar having a good time and someone with a strange accent sat next to you we would buy you a drink and engage you in conversation.

It's ok..... after seeing the same kind of pompous asshole on five different islands, I don't want to know them or hold a conversation with them.

I just wanted to have a conversation and see what their life was like..... not marry them.

I must admit that I'm really suprised such a well educated, humble and good conversationalist wasn't aware that there are gyms in Britain.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1419777


I never said I was better than any of you.

You Brits call us fat American's etc. Have you looked in the mirror? You guys are just as fat, if not FATTER than Americans.

Now you are acting like a typical condescending British prick. lmao
