It is interesting to note that this is a relatively recent development - the Chinese were known for their strictness and etiquette during the Imperial Era (ideals which were exported to, and can still be found in neighboring Korea and Japan, as well as certain overseas Chinese communities). Beginning with the first Opium War and ending with the Tiananmen Square Massacre, China has underwent a brutal history of over 150 years of non-stop violence and political and social chaos. People could not care to abide by manners and they threw away many old traditions regarding them in order to survive in this new dog-eat-dog world. Things in China have only started to stabilize recently, but being catapulted from each stage so abruptly means these intensely competitive and pessimistic attitudes remain.

The Chinese in particular can seem very impolite. They talk loudly and sharply, and come across as bossy and impatient - usually when addressing their social inferiors. This is because China's socio-economic situation (i.e. many citizens live in abject poverty, but there are a lot of Nouveau Riche bastards) means that wage-slaves like waiters and clerks can be and often are treated like dirt.

One could say that the whole thing is [[ValuesDissonance a big culture-clash]]. It's not to say that there aren't genuine assholes among the peoples of Asia - there are ''plenty'' - but more often than not, a 'rude' Asiatic is not genuinely such.

* ''Series/SamuraiGourmet'' is Japanese, but it still manages to grab this trope because the "madam" of "The Demoness's Ramen" is a horrific Chinese lady. In fact, hers is the only meal of the series that Kasumi gets no pleasure from, and that's saying a lot.

* Creator/JasperCarrott noted after a visit to Hong kong that spoken Chinese could make "I love you and wish to have sex with you" sound like "I intend to wrap barbed wire round your teticles and pull it tight, then to batter you senseless with a concrete block." He suspected it would be impossible to express love or affection in Chinese - it wasn't that sort of language.

This is because Chinese culture in particular values bluntness, and China's socio-economic situation (i.e. many citizens live in abject poverty, but there are a lot of Nouveau Riche bastards) means that wage-slaves like waiters and clerks can be and often are treated like dirt.

* MargaretCho does an impression of her mother that relies on this trope but tends to be decidedly affectionate. Most of her mother's brashness comes from trouble with the English Language (the only one Margaret speaks) and urgent concern for her daughter. In her rush to {{Mama Bear}}ing, some things just come out wrong.
