    I think that stereotypes always come from somewhere. Generalizing is not good...but it it doesn't mean it's not at least a little true.

    My brother is serving an LDS mission in South Carolina, he has told my family that all stereotypes are true down there. And there really are people who don't put a shirt on EVER.

    I am French as well as lazy.. But there are lazy people in all ethnicities.. I don't believe that just because you can say. Je suis né à France.. or Je suis français.. That you are entitled to a certain attitude or work style..

    I hope not. I'm half Japanese and half French, actually. I don't think I'm rude and I hope I am not. It does hurt my feelings when assumptions are made, especially when it involves race.

    That's why I kinda don't want to go to Europe. Don't wanna deal with idiots who think they're immaculent.*Yeah, it's most likely wrong oh freaking well.* Well at least not the U.K,Italy, France or Belgium. I might not even go to Russia.

    ALL stereotypes are a little bit true -- that's why they're stereotypes.

    Cultural stereotypes can be. I'd say the French enjoy life more than do work-obsessed Americans, but I still wouldn't want to live in Paris.

    Well some are. I'm guessing that's where the stereotype came from.

    The poll revealed 97 per cent of Paris public transport users believed fellow travellers were "ill-mannered" and lacked civility.

    The biggest gripe was people forcing their way onto trains before other passengers had got off.

    Other irritations were passengers talking too loudly on mobile phones, and people sprawling over two seats in packed carriages.

    Also included in the list of annoyances were queue-jumping at ticket counters, leaping over barriers without paying, putting feet up on seats, eating in public with one's mouth open and leaving litter behind.


    Some of my biggest pet peeves.

    Is it really a stereotype if they're even admitting it? And honestly....being a seasoned traveler, I'll add dirty to the list.... Try traveling to Tahiti on a plane full of them.... Not a good time....They are rude and think their s#$t doesn't stink they only think that because they can't smell it over their own Un-showered BO.

    Stereotypes don't usually appear out of thin air, there is usually substance to them.
