a mexican in america told me that americans are lazy

she said that mexicans use their dishwashers for drying racks, and wash all their dishes by hand.

is this just her.. i mean I know that it is not just a mexican thing. i have even done this. why did i feel this was slightly offensive?

i mean besides her telling me americans were lazy. she IS lazy herself! i wont get into it here.

  • That's why we can hire them, so we can pay them next to nothing and be lazy.

  • That's hilarious Anon :04...and my knee-jerk response to her would be what Anon :59 said....

    I don't think laziness or lack thereof is related to race...especially when related to washing dishes...

  • I teach English as a second language so I have a class room full of foreigners every day. The whole world thinks we are lazy, burger eating, coke drinking fat asses. McDonalds is our ambassador. They think the reason all of our jobs go over seas is bc we are too lazy to work.

  • They probably just can't figure out how to work the dishwashers, because they're in English. LMAO

  • i agree there are all kinds of lazy people and non lazy people everywhere
    i used to work with her, i witnessed how lazy she was on a daily basis, and she had made remarks to me a couple times about how much of a white girl i was, which i never knew why she said it... so i mentioned to my boss how it was uncalled for... i happened to be a minority there...and it was at a chiropractors office. and it all went downhill from there. he talked to her about it and they laughed about me behind my back... it never got better. she made $20 an hour as the receptionist and played bejeweled and was on myspace all day behind the computer. i made $11 an hour and worked my ass off massaging client after client, doing paperwork, filing, cleaning, putting up with the doctor's crap... anyways... i no longer work there... but saw a question about the dishwasher and remembered that. she pissed me off, im venting a couple years later. betrnow
