Oh lets talk about my visit to France. While walking around the town in Toulon, France, my mom, sister and I got hungry. We stopped at this little café thinking it would be a good place to stop and get something to eat. We sit down and the waiter hands us menus that are all in French. Let me back track and tell you that we were on a European cruise and had been going to 7 different countries throughout the 12-day cruise. France was our last stop until ending in Barcelona, Spain. Every other country had English subtitles on their menus, except for France. None of us could read the menu and the waiter did not speak any English at all. You could tell from the second that we sat down that the waiter did not like us because we were Americans. This made me really mad. Why would they be treating us this way? Why do they hate us so much? I started to think if this is what it would feel like for them to come to America. I realized that as Americans we don’t accommodate our guests that well and that we sometimes even have stereotypes and prejudices against them, even when we don’t know them. As the waiter was stereotyping me as a dumb American I will admit I was stereotyping her as one of the rude, disrespectful French person.
