Also, French people. They often won't speak English to you even though you are struggling like a mother ****er to communicate in French and they speak very good English. It's like an ego thing or something to them
So one or two chinese people cut in front of you in a line and you now hate 1.3 billion chinese? I think the dictionary word you r looking for to describe yoursel is "retarded"

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

KB24, I'm sure more people have done that to him. And he may not hate "Chinese" people, he may just hate whatever culture that is that facilitates such rude custom. Like, maybe Chinese people in America don't do that? I don't know. I would hate the custom of people cutting in line, and I'm sure that isn't limited to "mainland Chinese".

I'm xenophobic of people who leave that last "ue" off the word "queue", regardless of what color they are.

I don't hate Indian-Americans but I do hate the ones who stand 1 inch behind me in line. Especially after I do that white person thing where you turn around and stare at them like "ahem, been here 6 generations bro...step off" and they still don't understand you are flowing with American Independent Spirit and this space is my space.

I've got a few Indian friends (wouldn't say they are some of my best friends). Met 2 of them back in College. Thought it was funny that both guys, on separate occasions, told me, without prompt, "never trust an Indian". lol. Maybe they were both lying? I didn't know if I could trust either guy.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

So yeah prohorn,

So if i find few white guys doing coke and calling black people monkeys, i should hate the white culture that facilitates this behavior?

So if i find a few jewish lawyers arguing cases for murderers, i should pass judgement on the jewish culture?

So if a find a few black people...

So on...

You see where this logic leads you to?

China has 1.3 billion people. India has 1.2 billion. Keep in mind that world population is 7 billion. So you r passing judgement on more than 1/3rd of the worlds population based on a few people of that country you encounter?

R u busting my balls or u rly srs here?

Those aren't customs like line-cutting or standing 1" away from someone in line might be.

Uggg, she spelled "creek" like she says it... "crick". DIE DIE DIE

Also the pre-emptive attacks upon people who won't re-post are terrible. "Too cool to re-post". WTF? Shut up lady.

In fairness, I have no idea how she spells it. She copies and she pastes. Some people take the "repost or else" directives very seriously.

lol yeah it was not 1 or 2 people

regarding passing judgement on 1+ billion. Yes imo

say you see 200 out of 300 mainland chinese act in a certain way (random sample), I'm going to go on to conclude a random mainland chinese person will have about a 2/3 chance of acting that certain way. A random sample of 50+ is about where I start stereotyping

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

I'm friends with a lot of teachers on Facebook. Most of them (obv) young teachers 3ish years into their careers or so. All of them constantly have Facebook statuses bitching about how much money they make and how all these other professions make more money than them but don't "make as big of an impact."

I mean it's incessant... at least one per day will post a status complaining he/she doesn't make enough money for having "one of the hardest" jobs in America.

I want to reply every single time: "Ever stop to think there's a reason your salary isn't very high? Did someone lie to you before you decided to become a teacher about what the expected salary is? What did you expect?"

Then, this summer, all of these same people posted statuses about how nice it is to be able to sleep in all summer, do whatever they want and not have to work for 3 months. Always have been fine people to me, but these statuses seriously make me want to choke them.

DIABETES... I am asking if everyone could put this as their status for one hour. I'm pretty sure I know the ones that will. Think of someone you know or love who has or has had diabetes. My wish is that in 2011 a cure will be found. Will you post it for 1 hour to honor those who have fought or are fighting diabetes? Hope to see it in your status
I like the accusatory tone of "I'm pretty sure I know the ones that will" implying that anyone who doesn't is an evil *******.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

Facebook's very own Romeo and Juliet announced that they were "in a relationship" just over a month ago. Since then they've spammed my feed with heart-warming declarations of love for one another:









Unfortunately, their true love was not to be.







So now Juliet is reduced to "liking" inane statements that reflect her hearbreak, and making forlorn posts on Romeo's wall. Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things.

I had heard something similar, so when backpacking through France I made sure to memorize one phrase in French: "Bonjour (bonsoir), Monsieur (Madame), s'il vous plait, parlez vous anglais?"

In case the translation isn't obvious, it means, "Good day (evening), sir (madam), please, do you speak English?" Worked great, never had any issues with the ones that knew English being helpful.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

Backstory: Cousin, finished high school, went "away" (75 miles) to University and couldn't handle being away from mommy and daddy. Finished first year and quit and moved back in. Approx 1600 photos of self posted (of which probably 1500 are cell phone pics in mirror).

Updates in last week:
what to do today...
didn't know picking up a vacuum could be so complicated....
should probably remove herself from bed.
gunna lay in the sun
thank you guy at the starbucks drive thru for shutting yourself in the window. Made my day.

--> and then then best one to follow those up:

loves being an adult!

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

from the person i posted about last time

Quote:
God has no cell phone, but He is my favorite contact... He has no Facebook, but He is my Best Friend...He doesn't have Twitter, but still I follow Him...He has no Internet, but we stay connected! ! If God has been amazing in your life post this on your wall.
Quote:
Friends are like panties....Some crawl up your butt. Some snap under pressure. Some don't have the strength to hold you up. Some get a little twisted. Some are your favorite. Some are holy. Some are cheap. Some are naughty. And some actually cover your butt when you need them to. Re-post this for all the friends you know and love, give them a laugh today!!
Quote:
FOR ALL OF YOU WAITING IN HEAVEN:
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms. I have you in my heart.
Put this as your status if someone you miss is in heaven ♥ ♥ ♥
Quote:
A married couple in their 60's are visited by a fairy who grants them both a wish. "I want to travel round the world with my darling husband" says wife, two tickets for a luxury cruise magically appear in her hand. Husband says:"Sorry but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me." Fairy waves wand and husband becomes 92 ... Moral of story - men who are ungrateful should remember fairies are female!!!. ..pass it on girls
Quote:
The recession has hit everybody really hard... My neighbor got a pre-declined credit card in the mail. Wives are having sex with their husbands because they can't afford batteries. CEO's are now playing miniature golf. Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen. A stripper was killed when her audience showered her with rolls of pennies while she danced. I saw a Mormon with only one wife. If the bank returns your check marked Insufficient Funds, you call them and ask if they meant you or them..

Dr Seuss 2011--I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like this healthcare
scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie & cook the
books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret
deals. I do not like ex-speaker Nan, I do not like this "Yes We Can". I
do not like this spending spree, I'm smart, I know that nothing's free. I
do not like their smug replies, when I complain about their lies. I do
not like this kind of hope. I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!
and it goes on and on
