Thread Name: Do Americans know?
Subject: RE: Do Americans know?
Felisi, I'd have to say that you can substitute any nationality for "american" in your restaurant analogy, and not be far off.

After putting in a year at a Southern California amusement park (not Disney), and then supplementing it with a trip around the world courtesy of the US Navy, I've come to the conclusion that jerks are jerks. Doesn't matter what color, sex or nationality, the human race seems to be pretty evenly sprinkled with 'em, and since they're so vocal, they tend to be remembered more than the nice ones.

The good news is that nice people seem to be heavier in the mix. It just takes the time to know them.
