The Top Ten
I lived there for years. I've traveled most of the world and lived in four countries (including the hilariously #1 on this list - a straight hater vote). Without question Polish people are some of the most base, tactless, ignorant, arrogant, deluded, shallow, racist, anti-semitic, lying, thieving, backstabbing, complex-riddled, and you got it, RUDE people on planet earth. Making it worse, they actually think they're wonderful, as many of them are also the least Christian, 'Christians' you'll ever meet. This is only funny the first ten times they tell you how lovely they all are (and start criticizing your country as many are also 'global/cultural' experts). They are on these kinds of lists for a reason. Yes, there are some exceptions, but every cool and thoughtful Pole I knew there hated it and was either planning an escape or was trapped there because of family.
Very rude and egocentric people, nationalistic and blinded from self appreciation. Should be higher on the list.
Catholics from the middle age thinking and doing, racist against any migrant or even refugee.
I've been to nine of the top ten countries on this list and none of them come close to being as rude and socially inept as Poland/Poles.V 39 Comments
Totally absurd. I've travelled and lived in a number of countries. When you're strictly talking about people and character here (not politics or power) American's, in general, are some of the most helpful, friendly, kind, creative, open, tolerant, honest, and fun people on earth. Every possible race, color, nation, religion, orientation, and creed can be found in even smaller cities, in the middle of nowhere, in the US. It's the melting pot of the world and it's diversity is unmatched anywhere Are there rude Americans? Of course. It's not perfect. But there is no way it's objectively one of the 'rudest' countries on earth.
Ridiculous comments left mostly by people with intermediate level English pretending to be Americans - or people who've never been there and are haters. There is absolutely no way any globally well traveled, remotely honest person thinks the US is even in the top 10 on this list. Clowns.
Famous quote, "you can't do that to me, I'm an American! " Well too bad! I just did. "God bless America" What? what about the rest of the World, so self serving!. I believe America should be # 1 on this list. I've been to 93 Countries and most people despise americans, thy ask me "are you from USA? I reply, don't insult me, I'm Canadian. They then become more receptive in conversation.
Most Americans are ignorant, they think Canadians live in igloos, bathe in syrup, and more. (At least the ones that have not been to Canada.)V 56 Comments
It depends on which part of UK
Very rude and some can be very negative and abusive and even violent. Very good at not minding there own business. Can be often arrogant. And think the world should all be like them.
Nice people with bad manners
Like many other countries, the UK definitely has some problems, but I have always found them to be very friendly and personable. However, they do need to address their tendency to be ridiculously strict with their 'rules' and relax their pants on some issues. Recently, at a run-of-the-mill highstreet cafe in York, England, a waitress came to my table and admonished me for sharing half of my sandwich with my husband. Apparently if my husband wanted a sandwich, he should have ordered one for himself, sharing is not allowed (what). She ignored the fact that he had already eaten his full meal. Seriously though...correcting adult customers? Let it go, you're not SuperNannyNation. Apart from that, they're usually warm and friendly.V 16 Comments
Absolutely ridiculous, France, UK and USA are among the most multi cultural countries in the world, in France more than 170 countries are represented, the tensions are more between some ethnics part than else. The French people are kind anyway and France stays the most visited country, so rude you say? Just because you don't know anything at all and just believing in stereotypes as any mindless guy.
France is my favorite country and I am Irish!
Very bad experience all the times I've been there. Simply rude people that think they're better than everyone else
France has an amazingly diverse culture, and the language is easy to learn, not rude at all.V 28 Comments
Very uneducated. - tigerbw
Arrogant and rude
The most rude nation in europe by far!
Arrogance, provinciality obduracy...
Cons: Rigid, arrogant, not very good taste in clothing, cold, grumpy and often not as efficient as the theory says (that's for the Swiss instead). Oh, and arrogant for no reason (they are not the most good looking or the brightest people in the world, are they? ).
Pros: the new generations become more and more open to the English speaking people then the older ones, the latter of whom not being able to speak any other language.
If you do not believe Italy is inhabited by the most rude, lazy, savage and stupid people, is simply because they speak only italian and so it is impossible for any foreigner who does not understand that barbarian language decipher the obscenity that they say. If you are a foreigner, a young attractive woman, a minority, or simply a civilized person, be ready to get offended, arrassed cheated, robbed or worse if you go in Italy.
We have been there once and it is one time too much. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
Haha, these comments made me laugh. I am an Italian and I know we are xenophobes and proud! We want to keep our country italian not globalized! Dear leftist scumbags, look what happened to Germany, France and UK where let migrants into their countries. - ItalianPatriot
Italy (along with Romania) are probably the most deranged Latin nations when it comes to people.
Pros about Italians: good taste in clothes, personality (when common sense rules the person), many men and women are very good looking.
Cons: literally no manners; no professionalism in business.
I'm Italian and don't listen to these idiots, Italians are not arrogant, they just have pride and confidence in themselves. When it comes to rudeness, it depends at the location. The south is full of short tempered and egotistic people, but the north is the complete opposite. Italians are not nasty and not demoralizing and they do not think they are best at everything, what the hell are these lunatics talking about. They're certainly not deranged, some people just need to explore and educate themselves more because most of these comments are completely false.V 24 Comments
Bro only the government some of the people who live there is nice
These crazy, fat and ugly lechers are racist towards everyone but russi and china, yet Kim eats food from all over the world and went to school in Switzerland.
I don't know place just seems like hell to me.
Kim Jong Un. Enough said! - Userguy44V 8 Comments
I have a lot of international coworkers from around the world and bulgarians are definitely the rudest bunch.
I am Bulgarian and I can confirm we're really rude haha
Unfortunately most of the bulgarians are very pessimistic and close-minded.
Not better than Italy, same kind of behavior towards foreigners and outside world.V 2 Comments
Entitled and disrespectful
They're mean sometimes to tourists. And yes they take racist notes to other people. Typical two-faced country...
Probably the most bipolar nation there is, always felt like I was treading on egg shells when in a restaurant in case any waiter or waitress snapped at me. Happened more than once, one time was because I asked to add a bottle of water to a meal, another time was that my friend ordered salmon, and instead of asking for two I asked for salmon also. Also never try to split a bill if you're out, it may be the last thing you do. Never witnessed so much dramatic people in my life.
Definitely rude. We had antiforeginier and racist insults in Budapest 2018. People in hungary are extreme rude and jealous...No way to return there!
Most rude and very jealous people.V 5 Comments
Mean rude if needed
Can't speak for the country, but without exception, every man I have met from this countrybor culture is abrupt, ruse and ahoet-tempered.
The don't know what is manner at all.
Cut in the line, no personal space, never say excuse me, sorry, or thanks.
There has no rules.
It's obvious. they got no manners, they are just filthy bugs in human form
So arrogant and full of themselvesV 15 Comments
Boi look at the Serbian politics!
No way! Serbs are really nice people and I am suprised how helpful they are.
I don't think that Serbian people are rude. Among the slavic people serbs are the kindest!
They are so mean to Albanians and Kosavans
Most rude country in Africa
I came across Egyptians during a work assignment and I'd say they certainly are short tempered and rude relative to any other people I've come across.
Egyptians are the most rudest, impolite & loud people I ever saw. They don't have respect for any one what so ever.
Most uncivilized people in the earth..V 9 Comments
Bigot, out of the normal world, high arrogance level related to no way of understanding the real issues, rejects categorically the scientific evidences.
Against any kind a morality.
If you are not old, man, catholic, better white Italian or having Italian roots and having no problem with pedophilia and homophobia (being yourself not heterosexual...) pass your way, in the other case you will enjoy the entertainments there. Welcome to Paradise! - ~~~
Because this is the Capital of the church of babylon, which literally hacked the original, spiritual christianity.
Devil is so confident nowadays,
and the "pope" francis got very well connections with Argentine fascist elite, please google it people : read about his past.
Still there are few decent Christian people out there,
somewhere in monasteries, vegetarians and praying to Jesus sincerely.
This fake church will fall soon.
I lived her all my life and they never ever discriminate me, one of the most polite people, they are super peaceful and loving towards anyone who comes by them.
I have lived here for 12 years. Beautiful place - awful, awful people...the rudest ever with terrible manners, bad grammar, and terrible spelling. The South Island people are much nicer, but to be completely honest, the people are terrible. Workplace bullying is rife, along with something called "Tall Poppy Syndrome" - (look that one up)...in other words, if they are envious of you, they chop your head off. An incredibly Passive Aggressive society. Horrible people.
I have attended school there for 9 years (I'm from Canada) and I have been bullied throughout the years, plus no one is very friendly. New Zealand is a nice place to visit but I do not recommend living there.
Lmao get real here. There's other countries who are far racist than new zealand haha. - KateCollins
Kiwis are very rude. They grow horns out of their forehead when you ask them about the weather. They cannot resist rugby with potatos and pepper sauce. And they call everyone idiots. People called Rose and Sophie are particularly rude, and will never stop critizing other people.V 4 Comments
Too rude to my body
At least not all Argentinians are like that! Gosh
Rude, loud and bad tourists, who insist you speak their language where ever you are.
80% of Russians are very aggressive people! Be careful there!
Gross attitude and a mentality coming from the medieval era. Russia, you may have big balls and great power all over the world, but you really need to grow up. Seriously!
It's pretty obvious we're not going to like people who associate us with drugs and Putin.V 8 Comments
They hate our country where we live in Canada
I don't like the way how all Arab countries treat women! They're DISCUSTING!
I'm scared of this country.V 3 Comments
I just got back from my trip to the Balkans and most of the people in these countries where super kind but when I went to Kosovo they where worse then the French they think that if you have the money to go there your just there to shove it in there face that you have money!
I know a man from Kosovo that lives in North America. He told me he doesn't trust women, or believe them. And he cheats on all of his girlfriends. He has a few of them at a time. And he hates Serbs.
Why isn't this in the top ten. I live in kosovo, and everyone there is so mean, like once I walked around the supermarket and the casheir was so rude to my mom,however the kids at school are nice, I think its just the adults that are mean
Well the Czech people are kind hearted and helpful. Prague is a wonderful capital city and there are lot of tourists from evrywhere around the world. My experience about the Czech republic is very positive, and I have some friends from the Czech repuplic also. I only can recommend this country to everybody!
I'm Czech, I love being helpful and all but no one ever repaid it to me, people here only care about their sake and always seem really annoyed by their jobs. I don't even enjoy going anywhere, especially in the main city.
Got stones thrown at me for speaking german by a guy who was in his mid twenties with his daughter standing next to him laughing. I never go there again.
I am Czech and most Czechs are selfish, ignorant and rude. It a remnant of socialistic culture, where everyone cared only about himself or closest family. Sure, there are many people who are nice and helpful, but every 4 years the selfishness crystalizes in parliamentary elections. Also Czechs like to cheat and have very low morale profile.V 4 Comments
I will no longer be having India on my travel list. Not until I feel safe to do so. Not impressed with the governments actions towards people like the Muslims and the killing of Kashmiri people. India must own up to their actions and work from there rather than put blame on Pakistan, a country much smaller than them. Shame, the rich Mughal history of India is to die for to explore but I'm afraid this isn't the India I apparently once knew.
INDIA basically IS the mother of all rude countries. They call themselves the mother/father of other countries, am I not right? "Bharat mata" hail mother India? It really irks me how arrogant India is and I am better off not going there or associating myself with these kind of people that have arrogance in their blood. Once in a while you will definitely find some good Indians though.
Lost all respect for India as a nation. While the world is busy calling all Muslims terrorists the real terrorist and extremists are the Indian people the vast population is hateful, cunning and hold extremist Hindu views.
India not in the top ten? Wow you guys are too nice.V 22 Comments
It should be in top 5 rudest countries Full racist people You guys will be surprised that I just met 4 to 5 good people in last 2 years over here.99% aussie's are frustrated, rude, rasict.
Australia should be in the top 5...
I'm Australian and I'm very kind to others.
I live here, but people can be rude if you're rude to them. Australia is a very welcome country and I have never met a racist person! But to be honest, this is pretty much the only country that you can call your friend a "cun*" without being rude, but personally, I think that's rude, but other than that, I love this country!V 11 Comments
Gossipy. Vain. Enjoy pecking orders. Vicious. Even those who deny it are casually racist, sexist and homophobic. Very enjoyable people if you know what lines not to cross.
Not only rude but arrogant.
Yeah some people are very rude and racist
Mexicans are the most rudest people and RACIST! in School has the worst Education Systems bad culture ignorant people out of my entire life! I hope may not survive in a few years.V 1 Comment
Hindu can't live in Pakistan.
Pakistanis are not rude, you'll met the odd people here and there in your lifetime as you would with any other nationality. What matters is that Pakistani's are known to be extremely hospitable that's what these people meant be them being extremists. Also how the fork does terrorism link with being rude - just a side statement that Indians (the ones who are best at making these comments) are obsessed with Pakistan. Lol.
Literally all they care about is their religionV 5 Comments
I got mistreated there! I asked for steak and they sent me pork!
I just HATE em!
I hate shadman as he is a pervert. He is Swiss too.
This is one of the most soulless country I've ever been to. And I'm saying that because of the Swiss. I've never seen such a rude nation anywhere in this world I've been travelling through for a while. Swiss tend to live in their own bubble, have an extremely rude behavior and believe the entire universe revolves around their country, which is clearly wrong. And the racism is at a very, but very high scale.
Pros: extraordinary landmarks, amazing food, it's great place to make money, perfect infrastructure, high linguistic variety, chocolate, watches, high efficiency in business.
I'm half Swiss. The people you meet here tend to look very nice and BE very nice to you if they don't know you, but once they get to know you better (and especially, if you're from another country), they will verbally abuse you and put themselves very high on the scale. I'm more Polish than Swiss, and I don't understand how Poland is #1 on this list. We tend to be very nice people, shame that most of us choose not to learn other languages. Switzerland is all fine, but (some) of the people... - redhawk766V 3 Comments
BURMESE people DISCRIMINATE SKIN COLR, RELIGION, ETC. EVENTHOUGH THEY DISCRIMINATE THE SAME RELIGION SAME RACE BY COMPARING WITH SKIN COLOR.
Greeks are nice people! Greece should ranked at the top 10 least rude country.
I spent my holiday in Greece (2015) and I had some good memories. The local people in Athene were NICE,KIND,and HELPFUL and not just the capital, also in the greek islands were friendly people. The landscape and the mediterran areas were wonderful. I haven't heard any cruel or racist word to my skin color or appearance. Unfortunatley I can't tell this from my country! :( Greece supriced me positive way. God bless and save Greece and the greek people!
I'm Greek and I'm nice, not rude.
They think they are the best people in the world just because they have great history but new age Greeks are racist and rude.V 8 Comments
Okay so I’m half Sudanese half British not trying to insult my country but it’s just president,he does not do anything
Islamic Republic (Khartoum as capital), lead by a terrible dictator.
Not to be confused with South Sudan which has enough suffered the barbarity of the government of Khartoum.
I accidentally voted it. But I'm Sudanese and if I tell you one thing, they are very welcoming people. So shut your big mouths up you haters😠
One of the worst in the world.
Plastic surgery capital of the world
They tend to expect more from you, they get plastic surgeries just to get a career. They woud bully you for any slip up.

Swedish people never say "thank you" or "sorry" and ignore people they meet, just pretending they don't see you.
They don't care for others. If you step on their feet and you say "sorry" they just give you a rude face and goes away fast.
Maybe it's the weather there which at times makes the Swedes inhospitable to the point of being positively hostile. My oddest Swedish experience was when a stocky, well-dressed man wanted to start a fight with me on a 'posh' niteclub dancefloor because I had accidentally bumped against him...did I mention I'm a 5'5'' girl? In fact, the guys there can give the impression of generally being a bit rough with their womenfolk. Overall, I think the Swedes are okay, but sometimes they're just a bit dark and surly. Maybe they're really cuddly underneath all that moodiness.
Sweden is far from being a rude country, I live in Sweden, and I can say that everyone I meet are so kind! - darthvadernV 3 Comments
Very untrustworthy people that are always trying to get some extra money from you. Had a terrible experience and will be happy if I never go there again. Airport is a disaster too!
When I try to study, every single kid in my class start running around punching each other and screaming swear words while the teacher does the same.
The rudest people in the world, everybody trying to get more money from you any way they can, never smile,never ever go there again
Can't u see it?
After living here for two years, I now think of them as the rudest people I've ever met, BUT what seems rude in my country seems to be acceptable here so I believe different countries and people have different ideas on what is rude and what is not.
Should be Number 1. Rude, Disrespectful, Careless, Dirty. They only seem to care about 1. Money, 2.Themselves, 3. How their hair looks. Their so called "Pinoy Pride" is completely Misplaced. The most dysfunctional People and Country. I am disgusted by them. - SIC

If you go to Quebec or Alberta, then yes Canada is rude, but if you go to.b.c. or Ontario the people are very nice

Amsterdam is a wonderful international city. Outside of that, the rest of the country is hideously rude.

Women are extremely rude (says a guy who's always had more female friends than male ones). Overall, relationships between people are very shallow and the Irish generally can be pretty fake about everything. Everything or almost everything revolves around drinking and I still doubt Czech Republic has the highest alcohol consumption rate. Their only quality is they are much more polite than many, many other nations. Should I even mention how ridiculously has the crime rate increased lately, especially in Dublin?
Why do people think Ireland is all about the drinking and partying? Its actually a very religious country and they have a very strong and interesting history. I like it there. ( I am American) I have been to Ireland for Irish Dance, and the flight we took, our taxi driver, and the guy at the hotel were all very nice, not to mention everyone we met in stores and stuff. Very neat country!
Really? How did Ireland become a contender here? Seems an unlikely candidate.
Ok, and people still use the angry drunk Russian stereotype? These guys smell like scotch, and always want to fight. It's a beautiful country, but they're worse than the Scots when it comes to rudeness.V 2 Comments
It is normal, the vast majority of Romania are Roma. Gypsies do not want to go to work or school. They are a nation of banditry. As you see Roma have NO history or good culture. Their culture is the streets and travelling; cunning, and steal before moving on to the next town.
Please thankyou and sorry do not exist in the romanian vocab, if you use them you are seen as strange!
