Dutch expats think the Dutch are ruder

Just over half of Dutch people who live abroad consider their compatriots at home less well-mannered than other nationalities, according to research for Dutch world service radio.

In particular, waiters, teenagers and shop staff score badly. Some 55% of Dutch expats think the Dutch have become ruder since they left the country.
