Cultural Differences

Today, I received an email from Lydia – NFF who is married to an N.  She never responds to emails and if she does it is like 2-3 weeks later.  Well, she is playing her ‘nice’ card this past month and I haven’t been responding.  Warning, I find this email very, very, very, very offensive!

Subject: Cultural differences….

On a chain of beautiful deserted islands in the middle of the South
Pacific, the following people are stranded:
* Two Italian men and one Italian woman.
* Two French men and one French woman.
* Two German men and one German woman.
* Two Greek men and one Greek woman.
* Two British men and one British woman.
* Two Bulgarian men and one Bulgarian woman.
* Two Japanese men and one Japanese woman.
* Two Chinese men and one Chinese woman.
* Two Irish men and one Irish woman.
* Two American men and one American woman.

One month later, on these absolutely stunning deserted islands in the
middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred:
* One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.
* The two French men and the French woman are living happily together
in a menage à trois.
* The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating
visits with the German woman.
* The two Greek men are sleeping together and the Greek woman is
cooking and cleaning for them.
* The two British men are waiting for someone to introduce them to
the British woman.
* The two Bulgarian men took one look at the Bulgarian woman and
started swimming to another island..
* The two Japanese have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions.
* The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy, liquor store,
restaurant, and laundry, and have gotten the woman pregnant in order
to supply more employees for their stores.
* The two Irish men divided the island into north and south and set
up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because
it gets somewhat foggy after a few pints of coconut whisky. However,
they are satisfied because the British are not having any fun.
* The two American men are contemplating suicide, because the
American woman will not shut up and complains relentlessly about her
body, the true nature of feminism, what the sun is doing to her skin,
how she can do anything they can do, the necessity of fulfillment, the
equal division of household chores, how sand and palm trees make her
look fat, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her
nicer than they do, and how her relationship with her mother is the
root cause of all her problems, and why didn’t they bring a damn cell
phone so they could call 911 and get them all rescued off this
forsaken deserted island in the middle of freaking nowhere so she can
get her nails done and go shopping.

Stereotyping!  I felt so horrible reading this…I have friends from these countries and I am American and then I remembered why I am not contacting her anymore.  They had also made a racist comment to someone else the last time I saw them…that was a definitive moment for me.  I don’t deal with haters…Narcissists, Racists, Evil, Evil people.  Enough.

  1. wow is this supposed to be funny? this is so bizarre. not only is it just throwing a bunch of race names around, what is with that hateful mocking attitude towards women at the end? i tell ya, narcissists will laugh at anything. they are just biZARRE. and she’s a woman? i think narcissists think anything bizarrely hateful is funny, even when it’s about them!! HAH. DANG they are weird! this doesn’t even make me angry, its just so nonsensical. and WOW it is hateful, oh my god. what is this. its just soooo bizarre! eesh. you’re right, this woman is narc. she’s nutsos. you really have no business or time to waste on her, you are two fundamentally different people. you are better than her.


  2. Hi Lisa! You said it…It is amazing the non-sensical things she does! Her ‘usual’ way with me is that I contact her to see how she is and I have to be the one that stays in touch. I stopped the energy in staying in contact and then I get this email. I’m hoping that we fade away from being in contact with each other. Thanks for the support.


  3. That is the most vile and negative email I ever seen. I hate it and I cannot understand why would someone be this insensitive to send it to you. Anyway, thanks for coming forward about this and I am sorry to say Lydia is narrow-minded and has no consideration for whoever is reading this. Secondly, that offensive email is a negative stereotype of nationalities mentioned as above. Man, I wouldn’t want to be friends with Lydia anytime.


  4. Hi Whatsaysyou,

    I actually have been trying to let the ‘friendship’ fade…non responsive…just hoping it would be that we lost contact with each other. But the N notices this especially if you gave them the attention they needed. I do believe this was her form of punishment. We haven’t been in regular contact and all of sudden I get this email from her. She hasn’t faded yet…we still are useful to her. It will probably come down to telling her that we can’t be ‘friends’ anymore out right.

    Thanks for the support.
