Stupid Americans

Seriously... the Amazing Race needs to be cancelled. I'm embarrassed for every American when I watch that show. No wonder some foreigners think Americans are stupid!

For those of you who are not "cultured"...

1) It is not OK to get pissed at a Chinese Cab driver because he doesn't understand English.

2) Spanish is not a universal language! In other words, just because you know the Spanish word for "yes" does not mean you can roam the streets of Germany saying "Si"!

3) When trying to overcome a language barrier, You just make yourself look RIDICULOUS when you speak slower, talk louder, and use your fingers to try and communicate with someone.

Arghhh... LOL!

ETA: the "r" word has been changed. Now kindly remove the stick out of your rear end or leave my post. Thx

Ummm..."retarded"?

Pick a new word sugar, otherwise YOU appear stupid. You cant attempt to make yourself look cool and educated by poking fun at others while using that word. You look like a hypocrite. An insensitive and sad one at that.

i live in japan and the language barrier kills me.  i'm trying to learn slowly but surely.  however, i can assure you that miming is just as good as knowing how to say what you mean sometimes.  the japanese people i've met could all moonlight as street performers, lol.  but i definitely thing the first 2 are true and something i see often enough to embarrass me.

At what point am I trying to make myself look cool and educated? What I'm saying is pure common sense. I'm sorry if my terminology isn't PC enough for you.

 Do you mean PG? And you should care to censor what you say when it comes to that word.Some people find it offensive and hurtful..Which DOES make you look stupid and insensitive.

Which is also, pure common sense.
