Which country did you visit that gave you the impression that the inhabitants were really rude, even if it was probably just a cultural difference? What have they done that was rude to you?

Morocco.They are very cranky if you have your camera with you. They also try to pick them up. Even if there is a cap on the lens and you are not shooting. They are convinced for inexplicable reason that you take special pictures to make them laugh out how poor/dirty the country is. While I liked that picture very nicely. In Egypt It is exactly the other way around, you can’t possibly take pictures without people, so like posing them for the photo. On the market and in the shops they also make a chat with you or donate tea and coffee. In Morocco They greet you only when you draw your wallet and want to buy something clearly.

And what I found totally bizarre, they don’t bother to remember your name or mention you at all in your name.And I have a reasonably easy name. They immediately call you “Nasrania” (The Christian, which I am not, haha). I also found “Madame” just fine. 🙂

Qatar, by far.Started with customs, well there are more shagerijnige guests, but this is a long way to tell how expensive our visas were. He wanted my credit card and further I had to keep my head. When I asked it for the 3rd time he became so angry that it had not surprised me if I had been arrested. Then quickly gave my credit card. Then, our Indiaase taxi Chauf was called out to a few Arabs when he asked them the way. I have travelled a lot and have never felt so unwelcome as in Qatar before. Sandbox where money rules and things like environment, equality or justice totally do not play a role.

It was in the Keukenhof, which was full of tourists.I fell (after 卤 55 years in W Europe to have lived) that people from China, but especially those from Malaysia and Indonesia often talked very hard, what struck because no one did this, no quarrel or something, so they were accustomed to speaking.

I have met rude people in many kanden.In All the countries I’ve been to though.

But as a result, I did not feel that * all * the inhabitants of a country were rude.

In most cases, it involved everyday situations, such as pre-stakes at a cash register.Sometimes it was also called.

Paris, in France.

Unfriendly and Hautein.

There are several bodies in which a people can be rude.
In one country they do not keep doors open, in the other they throw junk on the street etc

“Being polite”, in many languages, requires intricate sentence constructions.Imfeeding Sages (would you, could you), unhelpful inserts (perhaps), evasive phrases (you may, would you mind), contact titles (du/Sie, tu/vous).That’s a challenge, when you have to communicate with someone in a language other than your own. Example (from when I ever worked with a local assistant in Suriname): “Give”. He simply meant: “Would you like to reach out to me”-an insane difference in komplexity. In a country like Liberia, where the official language is English, the politeness forms are still very limited-perhaps because English is spoken mainly by the upper layer of the population, and thus on commanding tone. Same in India: English is gladly spoken mandatorily…

Aside: In my pitch Australia, “You want to” is about the strongest and least polite command… “You want to fuck off before I hit you” or “you want to measure before you cut next time”.Any.
