    I don't chew gum.

    That said, people chewing whatever with their mouth open, like
    animals, irk me.

    Which reminds me: has anyone noticed how Chinese are consistently
    the worst tourists? They burp, spit, push, obstruct, and generally
    conduct themselves with the manners of a goat.

    Seitse,

    I don't know what part of the world you are from. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The Chinese people I have met are among the most polite People I know. Keep in mind we are known for being over polite at times.

    I dunno. I live in a red state in America. Most people here have the manners of a goat, or worse.

    You are disqualified. Canadians are too high of a benchmark when
    speaking about politeness.

    I wouldn't judge people in their own environment. They're, after all, in
    their turf. But, as tourists, you can see people out of their habitat and,
    henceforth, as in a petri dish where they can bee observed and analyzed
    in a sort of semi-isolation, with exogenous elements and strange stimuli
    lancing out very particular behaviors.

    I've seen all kinds of Americans/Brits, Germans, Japanese, and Africans
    touristing, and you get all flavors, from the polite and respectful to the
    outright animalistic. However, the ones consistently ranking among the
    worst are the Chinese. This, of course, comes from my own ethnographic
    notes but, truth be told, I do not recall other country organizing courses
    and pamphlets to show their people how to behave when traveling abroad.

    I need a certain amount of gum to properly chew nut think of myself still as aclosed mouth chewer.

    Chewers only bother me, when I have the Impression that they want Attention to what they are doing...
