Model American

N is telling me about an immigrant whose parents brought him here when he was 13.

“This poor guy!” N says. “He hasn’t been able to fit in at all. I’ve watched 10 YouTube videos by him, and all he does is complain. Everything here is bad, the medical care is too expensive, the politics is ridiculous, literally everything is worse than in Europe, the quality of life is shit compared to France or Sweden.”

“Gosh,” I said, “this fellow fits in a lot more than we do. He’s a typical American! And he doesn’t even know it. Which is very typical, too.”
