That is true. IN MY OPINION.<quoted text>
The best thing that has ever happened to me also happened in the US. I was in Austin watching game 4 of the World Series at a sports bar. I had been drinking there for a few hours and asked the bartender where a good place to go was after the game. He suggested a place called the Mean Eyed Cat, which was a Johnny Cash themed bar.
Sounded pretty awesome so I asked how far away it was - as in, is it walking distance? He said it's to far to walk so I said it's fine cos I'd just get a cab. He insisted that I don't waste my money and handed me his car keys - said he was heading there after his shift with the other bar staff so he'd just get a ride with them and grab his keys back off me when he got there later on.
So I drove his car... after he'd been serving me drinks for a few hours... a complete stranger.
The guy was a champion - but the funny thing is, people in the US (at least in the south) were so hospitable that it kind of just felt normal at the time and didn't come as too big a surprise.
It annoys me when I hear people here bag out Americans when they've clearly never been there! I have lived in Australia all my life and I can honestly say you'd never meet an Australian that would be as trusting and generous as that.
