Truthfully I don't think we can put all westerners in the same category. I am definitly different than my British or German brothers. Nice to see that someone likes to people watch as much as I do though. ;-)

well, i m sure you are mistaken, ad exchanged Westerners line with the "Asians", i.e. all above exactly th other way around.

For example:

Westerners: The kid is going to be independent and make his/her own living.

Asians: Slog whole life for the kids, the centre of your life

Westerners: Queuing in an orderly manner.

Asians: Queuing?! What's that?

Westerners: The boss is part of the team.

Asians: The boss is a fierce god.

and so on..

.. i think, you changed the lines mistakenly..
