So, picture this: A Sunday in Seoul, myself, Tim, Dylan, Lewis (all English), Eunha (Korean) and Myles (Irish) are sitting in an Irish pub called Wellingtons, talking about the night before and nursing our hangovers. We were just being ourselves and it was fine.
The table over though was a little different. All young men and all drunk. It wasn’t a question of what country they were from. They were the loudest, and everyone knew what they were talking about. It wasn’t the most intelligent conversation.
So then, one guy gets up and comes over. He says to hungover Tim “Why the fuck aren’t you smiling?”. Tim doesn’t smile. He went on like this for a bit, then finally said “Does your fucking mother have cancer?”. I was actually stunned… Did he really just say that?
The guy was being a complete asshole, and he was looking for a fight. The problem was he was with 10 other soldier looking American types. Then, eventually a girl at another table (who turned out to be from Canada) said, “My mom has cancer you dick”.
I really like the United States. They have some pretty awesome things. They also have countless great people. If you’ve ever met Mark or Aaron Venasky, they are two classy guys (sure, they have Canadian blood). Or my friend Ashley. Or Nicole. Or Kevin. Or Huy. Countless others that are really great people.
It’s just you have a few dick heads that give your country a horrible name internationally. Oh, and that Bush guy. So, I’m going to try to never judge any U.S. citizens as bad people, but I feel bad for you if you are one. You have a lot of dicks giving your good country a bad name.
