Why is if you give Americans a complete lack of info they can amaze you with their lack of curiosity?
Well I won't agree with you but I will give you a story, My husband and I went to Jamacia and we were treated so nice ( No tipping allowed) and still the people were very plesant and nice to see everyday, well we get back into the states and we are at the airport ( layover) and we got food in the airport, I got a burger that I need mustard for, well the stand did not have any and I asked the next stand where my husband got his food and I was told NO. I lauged and said you have got to be kidding me, I asked to see the manger and she came out from the food place I bought by food and after about a 2 min. conversation, I finally go a tablespoon of mustard. So I understand how you feel, but we are not all that way, but we are a much worse then most countries. If you don't think so, go to a mall and hold a door open for people and keep a percentage of how many will say "thank you"
:) I think that you should know, at your age (same as mine, btw - and welcome to FunAdvice) people are different all over.
In New York, they're very different than Oregon, or California, as those are the only three states I've lived in.
"but we are a much worse then most countries."
If you think customer service in the US is bad, you've obviously never been to Germany!
Nice way to group all American's into one large group of idiots.
