Professional what?

I am a consumer with an interest in what you so called professionals know. After hiring a friend to do some work on my home A/C system I realized that although I must respect his knowledge of the trade I didn't have to like his bedside manner. Of course with his 35 years experience and a PHD in pissing off friends and the public, he proceeded to do the work while drinking beer and smoking pot. He also had this ship eating attitude which I cannot understand since I was willing to pay him whatever he said and was not looking for the deal. I had to put up with his bull ship for 4 days to remount my A/C handler, put a drier on the line, evacuate the system with a borrowed from another friend's pump and guages. The work he did so far cost me $357.00. The system is not charged. He wanted another $100. You must understand that he was in need of money and I was willing to pay him for something I wasn't using for 2 years and would probably never turn it on since I don't really need the A/C. My fans keep me comfortable and I take cold showers. I saved probably $2500. in electric bills the past 2 years. Americans are a bunch of spoiled rotten idiots. In order to work on A/C you need not know a heck of a lot. Skills are minimal at best and I would say the drinking and smoking pot are probably the hardest ones to learn. It takes practice, cost money, and burns your brains and health all to hell. So remember anyone can be a smart ass A/C technician.

He's aledgedly your friend. You didn't know he smoked pot and drank beer?

35 years in the trade and he has to borrow a vac pump and guages?? I smell bullshit on your part.

I'm deeply insulted!! I'm Canadian, and we're just as spoiled as those Americans, buddy!

"Americans" refers to U.S.A. residents, not Canadians. Sort of like "Brits" refers to British, not Scotish, even though both are part of the British Isles.

Sure are! That's why we differentiate between us and you. :-)

Sorry, but Brazilians are also Americans.
If you don't like our continent, then please go somewhere else.

OK, then we are both North Americans then.
Why do you not consider Canadians to be Americans?

Seriously, where do you live? I'm surprised at your confusion over what, to most, would be considered accepted vernacular. "American troops" does not include Canadians or Brazilians. When an Italian says he's "going to America", he isn't coming to Canada. When you say "I'm proud to be an American", do you mean a North American??? There are other differences as well. To become an American, you must speak english, write a test, live in the country for a while. To be a Canadian, all you have to do is show up at the border. Someone from China can live in Canada for a few months and declare himself Canadian. After all, every vote counts, right? I wonder if I lived in China for 6 months, could I start telling everyone I'm Chinese?

Yes it does. "US troops" only includes United States folks.

How do you know?

Yes.
Lots of Americans don't speak English. Many speak Spanish, Portugese, French, etc.

No citizenship process?

I guess so.

No, you would be a visitor/alien.
