Not welcome here

Two nights back in my home country – the Netherlands.

Two nights!

That’s all it took to have our camper’s left side mirror kicked off in the middle of the night. (It’s no permanent damage, but the intention for worse must have been there.)

They say the Dutch are tolerant and open-minded.


Until you try driving around with German license plates.

The longer I spend away from home, the more I wonder if this is really the country I want to return to. Maybe I lived in a bubble (and with Dutch plates)?

    1. People are real assholes. And the Dutch rank high is what I realize more and more the longer I’m gone. We’re quite outspoken in our opinions. Sometimes it’s a good thing, like in many work environments. Often it isn’t. Like I had a wedding party yesterday, and was taking a breath of fresh air outside at some point. Some other drunk ass hat comes up to me to let me know I looked like a pathetic person, and what was I going to do about this. What do you even say to these people, except walk on? When I told him the way I look is none of his business, he insisted three times that he was trying to make a joke. People really are just assholes.
