This is along the same vein as "American stereotypes thread, but it got me thinking. I am not American born, my parents immigrated here legally. So I have a unique view at having seen people in my home country and here. There are hicks, rednecks, conservatives, etc in every country - not just the US. But I've noticed that people in the US just seem more "rude". I have seen that even with myself. Compared to my cousins and relatives in my home country - I am definitely not as nice. I think American culture in general gets people to thinking they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. We also take a ton of things for granted in this country that others less fortunate do not. Even the girls here seem much meaner than a girl from Europe, China, India, etc.
