Agree...We regard ourselves as polite - a stereotype that happens to be true, but IME Americans are way friendlier and much easier to approach. Another thing we’re known for is our chronic need to apologize all the time. I can't help but wonder what’s with that? Sorry, about that.

Yes indeed! I’ll look at this post from a different angle. Most seniors in America are quite pleasant once you start talking to them. I go for a nice long walk in my neighborhood 5x a week for the exercise. Most of the folks that I stop to chat with are seniors. Nice folks and most are always in a good mood.

Now compare and contrast American kids and teens. Wow just wow! It’s like they are in their own little odd bubble! I can guarantee you I wasn’t that odd and socially akward when I was that young. A lot of them default to nasty because they have zero communication skills. They have zero interest in others. Odd ducks for sure!

I’ve been to other countries and their youth aren’t nearly as warped as American kids.

I think the Gen Z-ers in the US spend a lot more time on their screens vs. face-to-face communication, generally speaking. From my observation from traveling and having a step-daughter from Europe, I've noticed they still meet and talk in person, the "old-fashioned way" more than American teens do. I'm not really one to talk about being socially awkard however, but I have borderline ASD so that's why I'm the way I am. I think I've gotten worse since the pandemic.
