I am American my DH is not. My nephew graduated from high school recently so his parents had friends and family over to celebrate. We (my dh, bil and I) were talking to him and his girlfriend about how they met. She says that he told her his parents would like her because she's not some "dumb american". I instantly got offended. I've been married to my dh for 12 years and never knew this was how they viewed Americans. They are teaching their kids this foolishness? Amazing. These kids have aunts and uncles that are American. Is that their opinion of us all?
The funny thing is, I am a doctor. I guess in their eyes I am a dumb American doctor.
