To those of you who are American, please stop apologising and feeling bad, I actually found that lady and her friends quite amusing so they made my day. And what's more the story got published on here, that's more exciting than a pot of gold any day

Sorry OP. Was the whole group as idiotic as her? How did they make you? By all of them swarming you? You should've mentioned leprechaun rights, and having important leprechaun things to do and tried to excuse yourself.

Apologizing on behalf of a group you are part of is an act of acknowledging that yes, there is a problem, but wish to ensure not everyone is like that; including yourself. Example would be me out with my friends at a bar and one of my buddies is being a total ass to another patron while having tipped one too many bottles. I'd apologize on his behalf to the target while getting him away. Nothing wrong with acknowledgement and politeness.

That's fair. But your initial protest was against Mororbo apologising FOR someone/something, not on behalf of someone. If what upset you was the behalf thing, that was absolutely unclear.

23- First, I don't know if "man" was meant just as a casual remark, but if it weren't, I'm a girl. And isn't this kind of being empathetic and sympathetic to OP by apologizing for the acts of the American?

I'm terrible sorry, I read it as "straw, man?" It's hard to detect tone when you read. My mistake. Or, should I not be sorry? Does it apply here? However, please don't think of me as uneducated and in need of research if I didn't understand a saying. Certain things are said in certain places. I don't mean to have an argument with a person on FML, so I'll leave it at this. Your argument wasn't great in the first place, and now you kind of seem like a jerk. But to each their own. Have a

This thread of comments to me represents ever FML comment about "idiotic Americans" posts: 1. The Canadians and Europeans who comment about America's high rate of ignorance and stupidity. 2. Americans apologizing for the ignorant American(s). 3. Americans who still go around posting "we're still the best" and stuff.

If he was smart he would take advantage of those idiots. 5$ a picture this is probably the last time you will see a real live leprechaun. Forget being humiliated by it, use it. From an American.

Wow. All I have to say is some of us Americans are actually sane, also you can keep that lady over there in Ireland, we already have to many that are cookoo. Lol and I picture her being to rough with all the pats on thw head. Knowing me I would kick her in the shins

It's true.. So many people are quick say.. That's Americans for you.. While I agree there are a lot of stupid people in America.. I'd say the same thing about every single other country. It just seems like everyone wants to hate on Americans. Hm.

#59 is it possible that #6 isn't American but is just living there? honestly, I cant remember if the location is picked up via internet or if we enter it in ourselves

And comments like that are why I hate going to Canada. Not everyone is the same, so that stands to reason not all Americans are an embarrassment to our country. That being said, I like the Australian way of hating everyone equally.
