By dumb tourists - China - Beijing
Today, a blonde tourist came up to me and asked me for directions to the nearest train station. I politely directed her there, and she left. Five minutes later, she came back and slapped me for not bringing her to an "English-speaking station". We're in China, lady. FML

Oh the irony.

Well china is starting to become the number one English speaking country in the world.

  shyeahh_fml  |  19

If I'm not mistaken, 21 is correct, but China is only the number one English-speaking country in the world because China's population is roughly 1.2 billion. They can have the most English speakers with far less than half of the population speaking English.

But do you expect to go a foreign country in East Asia and expect everyone to speak English?

She's stupid enough to not set her mentality to something like "I'm in China, perhaps they speak mostly Chinese" in contrast to "I know English and everyone should fucken know it too."

Lol it is ironic that she's blonde and would make such a stupid...statement. I'm not saying blondes in general are stupid. It's just that according to the jokes and stereotypes...they are make such....statements.

Oh no, we know why we're hated. But trust me, we're not all like the blonde chick in the story. So please be kind, and don't generalize all Americans off of one idiot.

Ok 24 theres afew things wrong with your statement.
1- no one said OP was American.
2- we dont have a problem with Americans down here in Australia.
3- you stated on your profile you live in SOUTH CAROLINA, which is just incase you didnt know in the United States of America.

So instead of giving your home country the big bag, why not try and make a difference?

The blonde chick could have been British or Irish (those are the English-speaking places that spring to mind right now). Maybe we shouldn't immediately jump on the "I hate Americans" bandwagon.

Plus, how can people hate Americans? Unless you've met all of them, it's a bit weird to just hate them for no real reason. I wouldn't like to think I was immediately hated because of where I'm from.

I haven't met many non-American idiot tourists. Not saying that all americans are idiots, just that idiot tourists tend to be american.

I'm more surprised that she had the audacity to slap a native in a foreign country. That's incredibly rude.

  cosmosis  |  12

Thats fantastic 9. Your a top bloke. Every American needs a hero, wearing his sisters sunnies to defend them from hurt feelings.

By the way, no one said anything about OP being american. And theres tons of stupid english speaking people all over the world.

Haha awesome to see a fellow Chinese on the site~ :) and how in the world did she track OP down in Beijing? Of all the Asian faces, you'd wonder if she was a true blond or a golden retriever... 0.0

Not knowing how to speak a language if you're a tourist is fine (after all, who's going to learn an ENTIRE language just to visit a country for a week or two). But expecting to not come across difficulties or a language-barrier is just pure stupidity. The lady in the FML is the latter.

44: for an instance lets assume that you are in a serious trouble or may be suffering from some disease and it can only be cured in a particular place and you dont know to speak their local language... how would you handle that situation??

  chosha_fml  |  25

#88 don't you think you'd be well-advised to know at least some key phrases in those languages by then? No-one expects fluency, but to rely on other people to speak your language in their country is kind of ignorant.

149 - Canada speaks English, Quebec speaks French. Pretend they are two entirely different countries. Seriously, it'll make more sense if you do.
