It’s all cultural, German and Spanish people are very friendly and accommodating; Brits and French are a bit prickly and take a bit of time to get to know!

But we love you all really xxx

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
The canaries are fine as long as you don't stay in the tourist centers. Loud drunken people are found in all tourist places.

You should have visited Madeira as well. It's beautifull and loud annoying people are virtually non existant there.

I went to Mexico once. The americans there were among the loudest and rudest persons I've ever met and thought they owned the place there.
Then again I frequently visited the States and met great Americans, which are not at all the stereotypes you'll find in Mexico and Vegas.

It's all being at the right places where drunken fucks stay away.

Unfortunately for the friendly Americans they've built up a very bad name the last few decades almost anywhere in the world except in their own country.

A lot of people here in Europe see the US as oil robbers. The US and their allies only intervene in countries where resources are found. Other african countries which don't have resources but do have massive genocides are left alone.
That said a lot of European countries including our own join the US to get a piece of the pie. It's detesting to say at least.

To be fair, you went to the canary islands.

Its the kind of place where the single mums with kids whos dads didnt bugger off, go on holiday.

Ive been to many places on holiday, Found lots of rude german and russian people in Egypt.

The english people who are nice, tend to spend a bit more that 700quid on a holiday.

I'm English and I fully agree with the OP's post. As someone else here said, a lot of these Brits abroad are indeed totally fucked up alcoholics that have nothing better to do than to read the sun, watch football and drink themselves to death.
I'm sorry you had to witness these fucktards first hand.
Almost all Americans I have met (there have been a lot) and I have been to the states a couple of times have been fantastic.
When I was over there, I met nothing buy hospitality.
I love my cousins across the pond.

This.


and pls note, thats the upper eschelon of a Rock holiday, most of em are 200 or 300.

I used to work there in my 20's, in the timeshare industry. Our bosses specifically told us not to target Americans 'because they dont qualify'...

On subsequent returns to Tenerife, on holidays, I would always adopt an American accent when approached by the touts (walking the gauntlet). They would instantly lose that fake smile and move onto some other poor victim.

That said tho - British people in general tend to be very economical in their conversation, almost streamlined. We ont like to take 5 minutes to make a point when we can say it in 20 seconds. A lot of Americans I've met do exactly that, almost as if their voice is the most amazing thing in the world and everyone should be listening to them.

I've read through 4 pages of these comments and not one person, not one, on either side of the debate, has made any attempt to try and understand the other culture. By reading these posts, I see the irony that you all may be from different sides of the Atlantic, yet you are all sitting in the same shallow boat.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
To be honest, I've had some pretty poor experiences at the workplace with anyone in the UK. They are nice as pie face to face, but as soon as you turn your back watch out. I was very much hoping that was just the business culture of the ones I've had to deal with, but it seems generally to be true. I've had friends and relatives who feel the same way working with different people from different UK companies.

There IS a cultural difference that must be taken into consideration. A quick Google search for US vs UK Business Culture comparisons gave some very good info and has helped me to avoid situations.

A little knowledge goes a long way, just don't totally let your guard down.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1335824


i know quite a few brits..none of which are rude..they are pretty much the same as regular Americans. I suspect the issue comes in when it relates to "rich" people in general..most rich people regardless of where they are from are snobs in every way possible..again..not all but most.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
btw i had the same thing when i was in Japan, i was inadvertenly rude sometimes but since i have some education and a basic notion of the world outside of where i live (unlike most americans) i didn't blame it on the locals.
Different places different customs and expectations.

Just read the entire thread. Very entertaining/illuminating and I had quite a few laughs.

To the OP. You had one bad experience. You've vented .. so move on. Don't blame an entire nation for the failings of a few. As one poster said... It's a bit 'shallow'

I love the Brits just as I love the Yanks. Good and bad in all of us dear Madam.

The english are rude pricks to everyone. The truth is that they live in crap country and they cant come to terms with the fact that the uk is nothing on the world stage anymore. They still like to think they are better than everyone else, they all have inferiority complexes and best thing you can do is stay away from them they are violent loud and unhealthy and full of crap toxins.

Re: Why are the British such Rude Pompous Ass Holes to Americans?
the majority of the global population are arseholes that think they're better than everyone else. I get an easy time of it being from scotland, people seem to like us for some reason lol. When people are out of their home territory in groups they seem to get loud and overbearing from what ive noticed, but folk need to stop being rude! That was shit what happened to you in the canaries though.

The assumption comes from the us media i think - they pick the stupidest people for reality tv and thats the image the world gets! Its kinda crap.

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

going to the canaries was kind of asking to be thrown in with a bunch of tits, british or otherwise

have to say though, OP - you totally come across as one of those americans who HAVE to socialise. leave people alone. if they want to strike up a conversation, they will

judging by youre general attitude, youre not a very nice person yourself. judgmental, generalising, uninformed, insulting

i wouldnt waste my time talking to you. im am not a 'snob'. people are SNOBS, they just dont want to make pointless, tedious conversations with bores like you who foist themselves upon others, in the name of 'being sociable'

yes, check yourself out. read back all the shit you have spewed

TALK TO ME OR I WILL HATE YOU!!

so, if they had been nice, would their 'fat asses' and 'bad teeth' and 'bad feet' been overlooked?

what a shallow, two-faced, hideous person you are

ooo! but i am so nice!

fucking get over yourself

oh, and please stop using the word 'brit'

people are english, scottish, welsh or irish. use their accents to identify them

ps. typical american straight and white teeth look like dentures, make you look old, look hilarious and scary at the same time

no dentists? no gyms?

seriously? YOURE the 'asshole', and you give genuinely nice americans a bad name

As I said earlier .. there's good and bad in all of us.

Forgive them Lord for they know not what they do. And BTW, I'm not even a christian. LOL. the world is full of dick heads.

But among them .. there a few shining lights!

I lived in Netherlands for some time and took Dutch lessons, I'm not loud and I looked into the cultural differences and such before my husband and I moved there. (I am not OP).

I'm quiet, I don't cuss, yet the girls in my class made me feel like I was in the midst of catty jr. high school girls. It was interesting in a way because I'd never encountered that before.

We also went to La Palma in Canary Islands, but back then it was mostly German tourists, not many Brits there.

I found Europeans in general more reserved, but the English struck me as the least friendly.
