Don't be ugly.
Ugly American is a term used to refer to the obnoxious, arrogant, demeaning, thoughtless, ignorant, or ethnocentric behavior of American citizens. We all have our Ugly moments. No one escapes. Apple was an Ugly American when the after-sale warranty policies in China came to light. Marketing horror stories from Avon to General Mills abound. Uglies lose market share. Uglies lose influence. Uglies lose accounts. Uglies are not as successful as they otherwise would be. Ugly Companies fall short of their potential in the global arena and Ugly individuals fall short in their personal sphere. My goal is to document my own experiences and Uglies around the world. Heaven forbid, you may even enjoy yourself along the way.
