Shit SB Says in Reply to Her Idol, Ms. Moon

There is nothing so ridiculous or embarrassing as Americans on vacation.

You have clearly never seen Europeans on vacation in Florida. One word: speedo.

Some aren't so bad ;)

DTG,
No, but I once encountered some speedo-wearing Europeans vacationing around the pool in a Holiday Inn in Ohio. It was THE GROSS. The Moms and I had to take our cocktails back to the room. That shit nearly put me off my dinner.

Jeannie,
Thank you. I am appalled by most of my own countrymen/women. I'm aware of how Americans are perceived elsewhere, and much of it is entirely justified.

Ms. Moon said...

Oh Lord. Yes.

When A and I leave the country, I often have to remind her to not behave as the "ugly american".

My favorite European encounter was the French family of 4 at Disney World all wearing matching velour track suits. Plus why do they wear such ugly shoes? You would get your ass kicked for wearing tennis shoes like those in most U.S. neighborhoods.

Mel,
I don't get the ugly shoe thing either, but then I own several pair of Birkenstock clogs. Laugh.

Love to you and A.

I think that any tourist on vacation has the potential to be ridiculous. We are out of our element and fear sometimes makes us do and say really stupid things.
