It's American women, like this Professional Class, clueless dolt, that make my life here in Germany much, much, harder than it has to be.
This breathless 'can't see past the nose on her face' astonishment thing of hers over the the fact that the rest of the world does not see America as The Sun that Planet Earth Revolves Around is exactly why the 95% of rest of the world has come to not have much, if any, respect left for We The Peoples of the USA.
And she's one of the smarter, better educated, and better traveled Americans.
Which, I guess, if Google is right, and she's a Product of GWU's MBA Program, majoring in, get this:
Business Administration Marketing & International Business is yet another indictment, (of a long line of them), of America's Higher Education System.
As well as the Elite Business School MBA Class. When I worked at Andersen Consulting in the late 1990s the place was rife with these idiots. You'd have thought we'd have learned our lesson over the course of this past decade, and started to produce better and more competent people, but I guess not.
And if Google is further right, and this is actually what she does for her Career, then things are even worse than I thought.
I'm so embarrassed by this I don't even know where to start.
BTW, I had a devil of a time finding a can of Campbell's New England Clam Chowder this past winter in the Marienplatz because American produced foods are, rightfully, not prominently displayed. Especially in the nicer German supermarkets.
And why should they be, when the other 95% of the world's people have so much better food to offer than America does?
