Countries With the Rudest People

The Top Ten

1 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Absolutely ridiculous. I've lived in four countries, including the US, and travelled the better part of the world for decades. Outside of NYC, there is no way any reasonable, non-biased, well travelled person thinks Americans are even in the top TWENTY of any 'rude' list. Forget about politics or agendas, the people in the US are, in large part, extremely open, helpful, welcoming, kind, fun, and honest. It's the melting pot of the world with diversity - even in smaller cities - that is unmatched anywhere on the planet. It's not perfect, not at all, but there is no way in hell Americans are among the rudest people in the world.

Just because you know a couple rude Americans you can't say Americans are rude. I can go over to your country and find at least one rude person. Really this list is stupid

As a Canadian who has visited various states, I've learned that the Americans are both excellent hosts and rude ones. Much more to the excellent side, however. - beatles

Everything about the country and the people are rude. From the airport to the hotel to the restaurants to the sidewalks. People routinely cut in front of you in line. They spit in front of you, use the sidewalk as a bathroom, and will not move out of your way while walking. Add in the constant loud talking whether on the phone or otherwise, and they are by far the rudest people on the planet.

This list just pisses me off. They call me rude (I'm Chinese). - 50

They are the most rude country in Asia

3 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

I grew up in Germany as a kid, and I hated it. I went to a candy shop once, and I was missing 3 cents and the German man who worked there didn't let me have my candy. I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD. I didn't speak German, I only spoke English so everyone knew I was American. This obese German kid told me I was a "fat American" and punched me in the face. He obviously weighed about 70 more pounds than me though. At a playground, I was in line for the slide and an older German kid pushed me out of the way when it was my turn. He flipped me off on his way down. I hated going outside to play because of these adults and children. My mom asked me why I stayed home all the time and I used to cry and tell her about how much I missed America and wanted to go home.

Many Germans often are rude and grumpy.

I went to Germany and there wasn't one rude person. They all spoke english fluently and were always keen to help out with german. At the restaurants and pubs the staff who worked there were extremely nice! Do not know why this is high on the list! Also why is America first when America is second for most friendly people?!

Extremely rude people, If you're not German, they will treat you like garbage. If you were a Muslim, expect being treated as a clown.

Just here to vent. So disappointing how every Indian I've come across except for my friend I've known for years, comes across either miserable (shop keepers? )/condescending like the woman the shop today who got out her way to rudely tell me to go to the back of the queue for reduced items when I was waiting to see what the staff would bring out and had no basket/trolley like all those in the queue DID. She was rude, told me shed tell a manager, and I was still polite. I am of a certain ethnicity that maybe she and many Indians in fact look down upon. Truth is, Indians amongst themselves are racist/rude and I mean not just generally rude. How would she then have respected me. People like this I don't understand how they can be so rude. I just don't

It actually depends on your race. The lighter your skin is, the friendlier tourists treat you, but the darker your skin is, the ruder the tourists treat you. This Indian woman openly greeted me, but when she looked at my friends, she glared at them, gave them the Cutis (which means screw you and your whole family in India and Pakistan), called them the n-word in Hindi, and told them to get out.

People in India are EXTREMELY rude about other religions. If it comes to forcefully trying to tell Pakistanis that they came from India and Pakistan doesn't exist (this is a common thing emotional Indians say) they will bring religion into it and say the most disgusting things I don't want to mention. They are the most oversensitive, arrogant and hateful people in the world. They are extremely self-centered and big-headed. I am fuming.

India is okay. After all, they do serve the most delicious food. Sad though how they never give change. My mom paid 60 rupees for a fifty-rupee dosa... AND SHE NEVER GOT HER CHANGE! - COMMANDARZ

One time my family and I went to a French restaurant and the French waiter was so snobby! Eventually he blew us off!

Maybe if you tried to speak some French to the waiter, you would've been treated warmly. Think outside the square!

A really nice melting pot of lots of different cultures and origins.
In France more than 150 different countries are represented which makes France the most mixed European country.
And France with its different territories all over the world gives you such a marvelous panel of people.

Should be higher. Why? Because nine of ten Poles are basically AWFUL people. I lived there for years and am still traumatized by being immersed in what is easily the most toxic culture/people I've ever experienced. I pity any decent, open, kind person trapped there.

Poles are exponentially rude. Especially if you're not white. They will attack you in public, and everyone will cheer. Poles are backwards people who shouldn't be allowed to leave their country.

Poles are some of the most aggressively ignorant & rude people on earth. Period.

Everyone in a bad mood. Replying to you in the rudest way. Even screaming with no reason. Plus boys treat women as an object.

Most racist country towards chinese

hope javanese indonesians will die soon and china will nuke them

They may look nice and polite on the outside, but Indonesians are some of the worst people you can find on the earth. Neonazis, chain-smoking babies, poor disgusting slobs, slums, unbelievable levels of corruption, racists (especially towards the Chinese and Jews), prostitutes, teenage pregnancies, pollution of almost every kind and drug addicts are commonplace. These racists even tried doing a pathetic re-enactment of the holocaust (Indonesians-Germans, Chinese-Jews) TWO TIMES with thousands of deaths, rapes and severe torture. They BURNT the USA and Australian flags and even expect the other 2 countries to respect their horrible hellhole of a country! My friend, Indonesians are rude and racist underneath their polite demeanour outside, don't visit Indonesia, especially if you are a Chinese, they will bully and harass you thinking that you are an evil capitalist crook!

20 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

You haven't been to Australia, right? Go there and you'll come home with a relaxed sigh

Just look their behavior with Aboriginal Australians and poor migrants, and you have the rudest people, all descendants of convicts, habitual criminals.

I'm an Australian myself and I'm very kind to others.

There are obviously Americans dissing Australians here. By the way, I'm not a descendant of "convicts, thugs, thieves, galerians", "habitual criminals" nor anyone similar, nor is most of the population of Australia and, unlike America, there are NO SLAVES in Australia. Look after your own backyard, not that of other countries.

Totally disagree with your opinion. This the only country where people have care then themselves for others, all foreigners who visited Pakistan, they praised Pakistani and got know the real hospitality. For your information, there os no terrorism by Pakistani people, terrorist are created by other countries for their politics. We care about non muslims while they are in Pakistan or outside Pakistan. we want them get better life here in this universe and after death. Who care else than Muslims are do?

They kill minorities only because they don't follow their religion. It's a terrorist state. I don't think this country is gonna survive for a long time. It will be captured soon.

I am pakistani and I really think we have some arrogant people and there are warm hearted people but all are controlled by government. It spreads hatred.

I am a Pakistani, but it's true that Pakistanis are one of the worst nation in the world. Most of my fellow countrymen are arrogant, self righteous, ignorant, judgy, cynical, corrupt meatheads. Just look at our leaders and you will see the reflection of our people.
