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?

I guess that is part of the adventure of travelling, seeing how different cultures act and react.

I think Americans can be just as snobby. It is often their way or the highway.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
I would have to say most Europeans and bits that are rude to American travellers have deep down psychological envy towards us and are pissed that their ancestors didn't get out and come to America when the getting was good. They are also pissed because no European country really has much influence in the world sure Europeans are well educated but what do they really contribute to the world other than what has been invented or established by an American innovator, besides German beer because that is the best in the world. I'm sure that will loss most of you off that are over in Europe but if it wasn't for us loud dumb Americans your ass would be living under the Third Reich but hey you idiots let the European Union come into being so I guess It's not to far off from what was planned anyways.

BTW, my husband and I have vacationed in Florida quite a bit, and of course there are loads of Brits there on "holiday". Anyway, while staying in a motel near Disney World, we discovered some of the Brits staying there were walking to and from the park, and crossing multi-lane highways to do so. So my spouse, out of the goodness of his heart. took it upon himself to ferry a family of four to and from the park for three days so they wouldn't get run over on the highway. That's how "Yanks" do things.

You can say that again!

We had to take 10 different planes and two inter island Ferries to get there see all the islands. I don't care what country you are in, the security agents makes everyone feel like a criminal. I got pulled aside 4 different times and was had every inch of my body groped.

I got groped in America 2 times, in Rome 1 time and in Spain 1 time.

Flying used to be fun, now it's worse than miserable. And the sad thing is YOU PAY to be made to feel like a criminal!

We've got three Brits, unconnected to each other, in my little town here in Colorado.

One mumbles under her breath so nobody can understand her.

One Brit's "gone native" and acts like an American.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 728979


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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1423319


i'm shocked tbh.

i love americans, and have never ever met one family of americans in the canaries, but i can assure you that if it had been my family you met you would have had the warmest welcome ever.

what you have to realise is that arseholes exist in ALL countries.

please don't let one or two bad experiences tarnish your opinions of an entire nation. that is incredibly shallow, and I think you're bigger than that.

Re: 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.
 Quoting: American 1423319


This is true. My great grandmother was from Málaga, Spain, and she HATED the English. My other Portuguese relatives hated them too. They treat natives like they're idiots. They are such condescending idiots. Maybe it's good for them to be brought a few notches, but it's always the same the rich pigs ruin it for everyone. Most English people I meet that are normal working class joes, are kind and warm and more than willing to hear your POV.

These spoiled rich royal fucks are bored and have nothing better tot do than act like perpetual toddlers.

It's kinda like when a woman cheats on a man and they divorce. When the man goes on and finds someone hotter, he's happier, and he becomes more successful without her, she resents him for it.

Typical....you have succumbed to the American propaganda machine, congratulations!....

In general i think Europeans have a much better standard of living than in the US, better working conditions, more vacations, vacations abroad, their food is much better quality, less crime, more history......

I think Americans are jealous of the rich history and culture that Europeans enjoy.....

Most of the pioneering science comes out of Europe....

Newton

Curie

Faraday

Voltaire

Pasteur

Watt

Fleming

to name but a few.......not to mention all of the literature and art.......

Dont get me wrong, America is an amazing country, and in its few hundred years it has achieved much, like NASA (even though it was German scientist really that made it what it is, Verner von Braun..)

However it is still in its youth as a nation, lets hope it can still be great nation for years to come, although things aint looking too bright right now......unfortunately.

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!
