Many of the things i had issues with in the states don't bother me as much as they did when i lived there. It's like " it's you're problem mate, i don't live there any more "
And within the US many consider half the population as "we" and the other half as "they". I met this guy in Perth recently originally from the States, who has lived there for over 30 years and he said it was so foreign going back, especially to the south.
