is this true about Americans? (if so, why like that?

The American characteristics of easy informality, calling people by their first names, making physical contact with near strangers, exchanging personal information on first acquittance, being loud and boisterous, and failing to use polite language (please, thank you) when making requests of waiters and service personal are all seen as being vulgar and rude by the French.

Update:

OR WHY *SOME* ARE LIKE THAT MORE IN USA MAYBE? (WHAT IS WRONG WITH BEING PERSONALLY FRIENDLY RIGHT AWAY WITH SOMEONE?

    It is not true of ALL Americans. However, it is true of far too many Americans.

    "Making physical contact with strangers"? That one is a major fallacy...unless it is by accident on cramped public transportation. You try to get too comfortable with a stranger in the wrong part of town and it will turn out badly. Most Americans like to keep our distance from one another I would say.

    Black women are always natural butchers just like Asian men are always natural janitors.
