I've lived in England for five years now, and nearly every English person I've ever met has told me upon our first meeting how stupid, uneducated, loud, or rude Americans are. Gee, thanks, nice to meet you too! To a man, I have never observed an English person who was not some combination of these him or herself, in addition to being an Anglocentric snob of tremendous proportions.

I'm a teen from south east england, not london, and to be honest I don't think I've ever met anyone who either call's themself one when they speak or talks about the weather alot. But I admit I do know people who drink tea... but in England a teen drinking tea is not commen as it tastes (to me and most other teens) of burnt toast. And in reality the idea of English people being posh and well spoken is rubish, sure some people have good pronounciation and good upbringing but a large portion of the nation speaks english in a slang form. And most English people are unpolite, there is no arguing with that. However if there is one stereotype of english people is that we are harshly judgemental and stereotypical. I don't know why this is but being different in an english secondary school(high school to americans) is the worst thing imaginable. And it continues through to adulthood. My dad for instance is highly homephobic and judgemental and has no fault voicing his opinions. Which for me is not good as one of my best freinds is gay(and people make his life hell for it). In england people tend to think americans are loud and rude, and I'm sure some are but not all of them. Have the people calling americans loud and rude ever met a stereotypical 'northerner'-scary experiance.
