American Idiots

I asked my friend Caroline to tell me what she thought of Americans before she came over from Sweden and here the words she described us as: Arrogant, Rude, Snobby, and Cranky...Just to name a few.

Why are we (Americans) like this?

She said that everybody she's met so far in California only talks about themselves. Tis true..for most Californias anyways. They couldn't give two shits about anybody but there precious little state. Sad, if you ask me.

I've also noticed that a lot of people are very cranky these days. Yes, I know we all have busy, stressfull lives...but is it that hard to say please and thank you. Or SMILE once in awhile. I was in a grocery store last week buying deli meat and the lady who was helping me seemed rather frazzled and annoyed that I needed help. I talked to her politely and asked her how her day ways. By the time she rang me up I could tell she was in a much better mood. Now was that so hard?

So, for all you Americans out there, Listen up! Don't be a meany head. Be nice. Have a great weekend, be polite, and smile once in awhile. Toodles.


  1. I lived for two years in LA and just recently returned to the UK. I couldn't have a higher opinion of the US. I love its people, their optimism, their positivity... it's a beautiful uplifting place.
