Reader comment on item: Hating America's Success

Submitted by Alexander M Smith (United States), Oct 12, 2004 at 14:06

I have traveled over the world as a C5 Quad. and even though we try to be friendly there are a lot of my competitors who are very antagonistic to most of the Americans. I was injured while in Puerto Rico by a scorpion sting and the medical doctor that was there from France said that it was only a bug bite and it would get better after awhile. Some friends from Germany got their medic to look at it, who in contrast to the French doctor, cut it out and put on a bandage that he changed every morning and evening. The French would not talk to anyone else, and we had some trouble with the Danes. But I am sure that if some of our folks had listened more they would have learned something that they did not know.
