4. Yep..

I have a story about that..
I work at a local hotel, and when there's a problem with a third party reservation like Expedia (and there are almost ALWAYS problems, don't use them they suck, call the hotel directly and book...SOOO much easier, if more expensive---just sayin'), usually I get someone from...well... NOT America. I got aggravated one night, and said to this poor wage slave:

"Look, I know your at work, and I KNOW your job probably sucks, but here's the thing. If you can look out your window, and see either Desert, Tropical Rain Forest, or skyscrapers rising out of third-world slums, your name is NOT Jennifer. I don't much CARE that your name is not Jennifer, I DO care that your employer thinks I'm dumb enough to NOT KNOW that your name's not Jennifer. So please,tell me your REAL name, lose the script, think like the Human Being you ARE instead of the corporate robot you're NOT, help me help this other person, and then we can BOTH get back to hating our jobs. "

My problem was fixed in about 3 more minutes, and she seemed grateful to talk to an American who thought of her as a little bit MORE than just a Worthless (customer) Service Animal.

I know it's a pain in the ass sometimes to deal with these poeple, but personally, I think if those people are going to help perputate an American Economic Sphere of Influence, then they should be getting paid an AMERICAN Federal Minimum Wage (not their economy's equalivant), and in American Dollars if they damn-well want it that way on their paycheck. If they are going to work for US so we can be lazy, those people should be among the richest fuckers in their country, as far as I'm concerned.

But that's just me.
