There's tons of 'em out there, but what particular ones can you personnally not stand?

With me, there are two:

Firstly (and not surprisingly) are the endless stereotypes of Heavy Metal. I'm sick of constantley hearing people say that it's "Satan's Music", that it takes no talent to play (any one who's tried to learn a Death Metal song knows how idiotic that statement is),
that it's all just screaming with fast guitars (that one really p**ses me off) and most of all: that all bands work for the devil and are trying to brainwash society (again, complete and utter BS).

Secondly, as a religious person, I'm annoyed with every stereotype and false accusation on the Christian religion. I've heard just about everything: that the church only exists to brainwash people, that every christian is an intolerant and condemning a-hole, that all priests are pedophiles, the list goes on. Most of these accusations are from athiests and sometimes followers of a certain pagan sector. Clearly they think just because one group is like this or one person commited a terrible act that all christians are like this. Again, a total load of crap.

So which stereotypes annoy you the most?

That all Polish people are dumb.    I find it odd how how you can't tell a joke about a black, Chinese or Jewish person without getting a "racist" label thrown at you but everyone can enjoy a good Polish joke.

I mean don't get me wrong, I've had a few relatives that are true "Pollocks".  That and at least the Polish can laugh at the jokes but honestly, if we can take the joke the rest of the ethnicities should too about their stereotypes.

The Irish are the same, my friend. Nobody cares about Irish stereotypes, or joking about them. Truth be told, most Irish don't care much about the stereotypes, and are quite comfortable making fun of themselves and everyone else, preferrably over a drink.

Speaking as someone with ADHD & Aspergers', I am just plain sick of being portrayed as someone who walks around with their head down, twiddling his thumbs, & talks like a four year old.

And that mantra, "jobs Americans aren't willing to do" really makes my blood boil.

lol... It's really... Job That American's Cannot Legally Do, that's because those jobs are either below Minimum Wage and/or unprotective for the workers... It's going to be funny once the Illegal Immigrants become American Citizens and then they have to quit their jobs...

To many ladies out there...(none of which I'm sure reside on this board btw  TeddyR)

1.) Not all men are "stupid".
2.) Many men are "good"  for other things beside lifting something heavy.
3.) Men do in fact think of other things besides sex.

Those are the breaks. While the three points you bring up are true, unfortunately it's a case of "the squeaky wheel gets the grease." The men that are stupid, are useful for little more than sperm donor or lifting heavy objects, or think of nothing but sex, also make the most noise, therefore they get the most attention.

One stereotype I hate is 'children in restaurants always misbehave.'

We've had people seated next to us get up and leave, or move tables, when they realized they were next to a FAMILY (when the HELL did that become a Bad Thing (tm) in America?).  It makes me see red that they assume our children are the little hellions they think they are by prejudice.

We've had people come to us and say "we thought about moving, but didn't; just wanted to say your children are very well behaved."

We've also had quite a number of people comment to us how they behave at restaurants, even to the point of giving small trinkets to them as 'reward.'  No, these are not people we know...complete strangers doing something nice to reinforce positive behavior.

But, we still get the snide looks, mostly from older couples/groups who probably have been through it with their own children and now think that gives them license to be uppity.

On the other hand, our children are certainly not like this ALL the time - they CAN be the little hellions people presuppose they will be.  But in those cases, WE tend to leave for two main reasons.  (1) It's OUR JOB to handle it, not to ask everyone else to deal with it, (2) we don't want to reward bad behavior with the fun of eating out.

So, I guess part of what bugs me about this is that not only do some folks presuppose the little ones will misbehave, but they ALSO presuppose that I won't take care of it in a socially appropriate way.

Keep in mind, I'm not talking about 5 star dining establishments here...places like Ruby Tuesday and the like are not really the kind of place where anyone should hold really high expectations to 'atmosphere' anyway.

Oh well, rant off...
