I usually attend Disney's Comedy Warehouse on Thursday nights. That's traditionally Cast Member Night, with the later shows heavily attended by those poor unfortunate souls.
One night, the performer asked for a "pet peeve" around which to build the last improv of the night. It was 'Brazilian tourists.' They normally reject that outright, but this one time they took it.
Everything Disney people hate about Brazilians came up in that short improv. The women who wear bathing suits to the park that would get them arrested on the Florida beaches...the Brazilian cultural imperative to shove and lie their way to the head of a queue...and their belief that anything in a store that's small enough to be pocketed, deserves to be pocketed. (I think Eisner made his millions from the legal fees paid when the Brazilians found out that was wrong, and how tight Disney security really is.)
Which is not to excuse those Americans who refuse to tip the wait staff, or other nationalities, of course.
