It is incredible that grumbling, however rudely, by two foreigners about delays at the payment counter can lead to such a generalization about foreigners (DS 15/6/08 ). Such rude grumbling is not the exclusive domain of the English and is certainly well within the domain of Bangladeshis. If such a generalization is acceptable, it is no wonder that Bangladeshis are all painted with the same brush in the Middle East. It would have been more appropriate to complain about the rudeness of the two English ladies without referring to 'these foreigners'. The generalization that foreigners are rude is itself far ruder than rude grumbling about customer service.
We Bangladeshis are more than capable of inflicting injustice on our fellow Bangladeshis without help from foreigners. On a lighter note though, the English would be far ruder about corrupt politicians than we are.
