No one works as hard as americans....we have to to support all the welfare nations.
Perhaps poison rations would help.
2002-04-02 06:50:53 PM  
I'll second that.

My God. I hate poll's.
2002-04-02 06:52:18 PM  
i think i'm that way 'cuz i don't get laid.
2002-04-02 06:52:18 PM  
I overeat because I get bored. But the grumpy and short-tempered part was pretty much right on.
2002-04-02 06:52:50 PM  
yeah no kidding, we have the longest workweek out of any of the major economic nations (i.e. japan, germany, etc.). no wonder we're so pissed off. and fat.

Over worked, under paid.

The rest of the world is annoying, incompetent, lazy, and grabby. You'd be grumpy, tired, and short of nutritional judgment, too, if you were constantly picking up the slack.

France goes on vacation.
2002-04-02 06:56:13 PM  
And manipulative. The rest of the world is damned manipulative.

Pisses me off.
2002-04-02 06:56:13 PM  
My wife's like that, even when she's not tired. So what's new?
2002-04-02 06:56:45 PM  
I strongly resent being represented this way! I would go out and kick some nonprofit organization ass, but I am too tired. Maybe after my afternoon snack.
2002-04-02 06:57:14 PM

i gotta go buy me some glasses.

Americans are grumpy, short-tempered and prone to overeat because they are HUNG OVER.
2002-04-02 06:57:45 PM  
I would agree with that basic premise. Maybe that's wh y i ' m soo o oo oooo oo o o sssssll l l lll ee eee e e p yy yyy y y y y . . . zzzzzzzzzzzz
2002-04-02 06:58:24 PM  
What the hell I'm not short tempered. I'll kick your a$$ for spreading such b.s.
2002-04-02 06:58:27 PM  
Shut up and pass me another chicken leg and some mashed potatoes and gravy. *BURP*

2002-04-02 07:00:29 PM  
I'm asleep right now.
2002-04-02 07:00:47 PM  
So what does that say for the rest of the (3rd) world?
2002-04-02 07:01:31 PM  
Grumpy? I'm not farking grumpy. Asshole.
2002-04-02 07:01:54 PM  
"Americans are grumpy, short-tempered and prone to overeat because they are tired."

Since when do people refer americans as americans?

African Americans are grumpy.

Hispanics are short

Asians are tempered and

Whities are tired.

"Maybe it's because we are retarded party animals."
2002-04-02 07:03:08 PM  
fark you! I'm not grumpy you bastards!
2002-04-02 07:04:12 PM  
I see wedge and I think alike. Quit stealing my thoughts you bastard!
2002-04-02 07:05:05 PM  
americans are just looking for excuses to be ok with getting fatter. awwww poooor us overworked americans. tired? from what? certainly not from all that exercise we are getting from sitting here (not just fark, but internet, TV, etcetcetc.

(i can say this all because I am still all sweaty from my 3 mile walk that I completely hate having to do because I spent so much time sitting here instead of actually moving, but now I am in my 40's and weighing in at over 200 when just 5 years ago I was in a size 34 waist. damn our grumpy and tired and fat asses....)

pay attention kids, 135 pounds is nice, but dont get used to it.

(grumble grumble - I miss eating dinners)
2002-04-02 07:06:30 PM  
my understanding is that you guys get 2 weeks holiday from your employer each year - is that true?
2002-04-02 07:10:20 PM  
I've been saying this for *years*. I meant it as an insult though, not as fact! Glad to be right for once. Bloody Yanks!
2002-04-02 07:12:33 PM  
What really pisses me off is when some loser can't make up their mind in the buffet line and holds everything up. I get so mad and worked up over it I can't sleep.
2002-04-02 07:12:51 PM  
Jshinners: That's the theory. A lot of people I know work from when they get up to when they sleep, and they're still on call. I feel bad for them, too. They have three cellphones, and take them with them on vacation.
2002-04-02 07:12:54 PM  
I suppose it depends on where you work. It's not required to get that much vacation or anything. I happen to get a good deal on vacation, sick and "personal time" at my job though.
2002-04-02 07:14:15 PM  
fark, shiat
2002-04-02 07:14:32 PM  
It's easy to get time off from my job. I just have to tell them something like thirty years in advance. :)
2002-04-02 07:16:11 PM  
I should be American...
2002-04-02 07:17:39 PM  
I've heard that when you die, now the only thing you take with you is your pager.
2002-04-02 07:19:20 PM  
I can blame having to get up at six thirty for high school, which, might I add, is the lamest piece of crap on earth, for being fat and angry?

Snap, I'm going to sleep in, stop working, and lose weight!

THEN I'll be a rock star.
2002-04-02 07:19:28 PM  
Americans are grumpy,



Why you little piss ant reporter, if I get my hands on you I'm gonna wring your scrawny little neck.

and prone to overeat because they are tired

Shut up and get me a twinkie...and hit the lights on your way out.
2002-04-02 07:21:40 PM  
I always get my nine hours a night.
You bet your ass.
2002-04-02 07:22:10 PM  
CitronR - thanks for the answer; seems too short a time to escape, I feel sorry for anyone who is restricted in that sense. I'm also amazed that the this seems to be the standard in the US (correct me if I'm wrong).

Work to live, not live to work.

Hmmm...I am working, hungry, pissed and tired.

Perhaps I could claim temporary insanity and mow down the class I am teaching with an AK 47.

THEN I could eat them.

AND I could go home early.

2002-04-02 07:37:12 PM  
you're telling me.....I'm in Canada and I do tech support for Road people piss me off...
2002-04-02 07:37:44 PM  
Death to everybody except America!
2002-04-02 07:39:31 PM  
We're not overworked, we just have to take everything to extremes.
2002-04-02 07:39:57 PM  
We work as hard as we do because we have to ... to pay all the taxes.

We are grumpy because we have an increasingly balkanized society because of rampant immigration and the 3rd world culture of the hyphenated americans and the resulting demands they place on society for social services and governmental involvement that we pay for with our taxes.

We are sleepy because its all bullshiat, and we're sick of it ...

We eat too much because we can ...

Hope this helps ...

The Nando Times are Anti-American terrorists. Let's drop daisy cutters on 'em, like real American patriots would, not wussy liberal wimps tht are stupiter than u can imagine! Lets rolll!
