You'd be surprised how many "American" idiots are out there. A few years ago I was walking away from a car dealership where I'd delivered the mail. Most of the employees were Hispanic. As I was heading to my vehicle, an "American" salesman who'd been in the office walked by me. "Damn, I'm sick of these people," he said. "Not a damn one of them speaks American!"

A clerk I used to work with (guy named Curtis) was whining about immigrants. "They should all learn to speak American before they're allowed to live here," he said. But he speaks with a powerful accent himself. What he said sounded more like this: "Thay shooood AWL larn tuh SPAKE 'murrkin if they wawn tuh live hyar."

After pointing out to Curtis that he didn't even know the correct name for his own native language, I told him he needed to learn to speak English before he started whining about the ability of others to do so.
