Was this a bit inappropriate, or am i being too sensitive about it?
Today at lunch, one of my coworkers mentioned they were going on holiday to England (the country I'm from), specifically to London (the city I'm from). They knew I was from there (they didn't ask me about it, but that's only because I'm extremely quiet in work and don't really say much anyway). Then one of them mentioned that English people can be a bit abrupt (which I didn't mind, I'd even agree on it to be honest). But then they started to talk about how rude people from England can be, particularly people from London. They did quickly turn to me and said "Not you though, you're very quiet", but even so I thought they were being a bit insensitive. I wouldn't have cared too much that they were talking about me. But my mum, brother and uncles are from London and they're the nicest people I know (way nicer than I am if I'm honest), and then they were basically insulting them right in front of me. It's not even that they have those opinions about the English that bothers me, a lot of people do, it's just the fact that they said it in front of me upset me a little.
If I read this question from anyone else, I'd assume that those coworkers were just a bunch of assholes. But the reason I'm even asking if this is ok is because my coworkers are all really nice, which is why it surprised me that they said all that in front of me. So that's the reason why I think I'm just being a bit sensitive about it. I don't know, what do you think?
