I have been meeting more and more Venezuelans here and I hate to say it but they come across really arrogant and rude as hell.

My heart goes out to the people of Venezuela right now.
A multitude of them are arriving in Florida, every day....

This likely has to do with the fact that they are accustomed to things being given to them. They are not used to working for a living. Up until recently their government was taking care of them and theirs was the richest country in latin america.

Even before Chavez? The Venezuelans i met in the 90s were like that too. I have met rude and arrogant people of all nationalities, but Venezuelans seem to excel at this.

Generally Venezuelans come in 2 types:



1.- From Middle-to-Low stratus . These voted for Chavez and now migrating by the millions.

2.- From Middle-to-Upper social stratus. Better known as "burguesses" (on its many flavors)



Yes the latter are the kind of people I prefer no to deal with, Arrogant,Snob, Loud, dressing the colors of their Country anywhere they go (as if that was something to be really Proud of), complaining about the conditions of the Country the migrated to, feeling above other people, making remarks of how physically beautiful they are compared to others South Americans.



The former you would see them as uneducated and very prone to commit crimes anywhere they go because that what they were doing back in their own city. They got used to easy access to health and social programs without having to work, scholarships they wasted buying the most trendy clothes or gadgets at that time.



Now they are arriving to Miami by the hordes and I am curious how the conflicts will pan out with the already established Cubans and Colombians there,once Venezuelans are majority in Miami.

You probably know better than me, I haven't met many of them. When I was in Colombia recently I was told that the Venezuelans aren't accustomed to working and are having a hard time adapting to life in Colombia.
