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.
Uhh... I'm Polish. We're not that bad, believe me.. It's only that most of us never choose to learn foreign languages, because they don't understand how difficult our language is to learn... Or because they just never could learn it.. Ok. Now, this is probably gonna sound wrong, but I'm sure most of the people commenting are the "I don't know anything about it, so I'll speak up" kind of people. Sorry if that sounded rude, but that's the way it is. - redhawk766V 18 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!
France has an amazingly diverse culture, and the language is easy to learn, not rude at all.
Honestly, France is the most visited country in the world, so as a tourist who doesn’t speak French at all, it was so dificult for me to order my food or to ask a route. Nobody speaks English and apparently no one makes the effort to understand you or helping you.V 25 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.
Although I'm American citizen, but I have more respect for non-American citizens than American citizens (only those who never been outside of USA). All the stereotypes about certain people come from Americans themselves. They are most ignorant people because most never travel outside of USA. They say that Chinese are good at maths, however, this only applies to Chinese Americans, not native mainland Chinese. They make rude jokes about people based on skin colour, hair colour and other physical traits. Racism is always persistent in United States since slavery of Africans. Americans are so arrogant that they put more emphasis on individualism. They do have strongest military, but they withdrew from recent wars like Iraq. They have the largest prison population due to gun killings, property destruction and crimes against humanity. Not all Caucasians are Americans because they can be from Europe, Canada or Australia. Americans are mostly prideful pricks who are always arrogant.
I think it's one of the rude country because likie there's a lot of bullying going on and that means that a lot of people are rude.V 36 Comments
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.
I can agree! I'm from Germany and German people are often rude and grumpy.
Very arrogant, extremely cold and rude people! Efficiency and good work is a myth. People should not believe that. Wondering how the numbers show a powerful nation in Europe. Maybe in numbers but not on live quality.
They got their rudeness from the Nazis - infinitecirculationV 10 Comments
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.
Rudeness can be bafflingly subjective. While smiling may be a common way to greet someone, in Italy it could be interpreted as insincere we discovered when travelling across the country. When I wanted to ask directions our first impression was that nobody was willing to help us, or in such an unintelligible language. When we tried to make contact nobody smiled and looked really helpful or approachable. Only later I learned that in Italy smiling at strangers can be interpreted as making fun of them.
No! Get rid of Italy!
Italians are so helpful and polite. Very attractive people and very romantic language. Been there three times never had problems, always wanting to help a hand.
Italian Bengali are even more polite and friendly - infinitecirculation
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.
Traveled extensively and found, Brit drivers most courteous, but London rip-off, watch your prices and change carefully. France, locals great but watch out for err non-locals, danger violent thieves. USA, most people great but too many hands out for tips for no reason, NYC great but every where do a deal. Asia, everyone wants to do a deal, possible USA influence. UK, USA and France definitively not the rudest.
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.
Never met so many rude people until I moved here...and I'm American! - catlvrV 13 Comments
Not better than Italy, same kind of behavior towards foreigners and outside world.
Refuse any immigration, close-minded.
Go to a restaurant in Prague.. And you'll be shocked
You want to live in Czech republic? You must speak Czech fluently
No more than Italy or Sunotisaja
Czechs are sometimes rude people,Although they are helpful.
Egyptians are the most rudest, impolite & loud people I ever saw. They don't have respect for any one what so ever.
Egyptians are the rudest people on the whole planet
Most uncivilized people in the earth..V 7 Comments
What should I say..
It depends what island you go to and what area, North island especially in Rotarua, Hamilton and Auckland there are very rude and racist people there, but in the South Island the more south you go the nicer the people
They are very rude and over all jerks no manners what so ever
I live there and I'm canadian they are so racist!
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.
Rudest people I have ever met in my entire life
Are you serious? they are really friendly - infinitecirculationV 6 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
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... - redhawk766
The Swiss just don't have any personality.
I am from Bern (the Hauptstadt (capital). I have met good very nice fellow 'Schwyzer Lüte' and some bad apples as well. Still, as I was born there CH is special to me.
I would say that the USA in my experience is most likely the winner for being the rudest and most obnoxious place on the Third Planet from the Sun (especially with D J Trump as their new President)!
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!
Not helpful at all, very rude not only to foreigners but among themselves. If someone shows kindness, watch out they want to rob you.
Depends on the area.
It's pretty obvious we're not going to like people who associate us with drugs and Putin.V 5 Comments
That's the rudest country in Europe ladies and gentelmans. I waited to use toilet then a guy said "get out its not a public toilet" like 4 times. I was all nice to him even asked with hello sir but the people here are just horrible. Every taxi driver wanted to scam me for like 10 euro, I was in 4 restaurants and in 3 of them waiters were absolutely rude and wanted to scam me, I wanted to smoke a cig but I had no firelighter so I asked a bodyguard at havana club if he can lend me firelighter for a while and he said not for you. Island itself is nic but people here are more than horrible. I do not recommend this racist and selfish country to anyone.
Rude, Arrogant, Gropers, Letchers and Ignorant. Thank God it's an island and they can't affect the rest of the Med!
We drive horribly and lots of traffic and we accept too many immigrants (Arabs). But Malta is not that bad as a country.
Too much immegrants and Arabs and muslims, They can steal your money and be very rude to you and bad service, we had experience at one restaurant called D'office Bistro in Valatta, And the waiter was very bad and rude to us and tried to steal our money with fake bills and his name was Khodor Bayan.V 1 Comment
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!
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.
