Besides, two of my friends lived in Vietnam for six months, and even they said the Vietnamese were rude to them despite becoming locals.

There was the bread lady who refused to give me back the proper change, the food seller who charged me triple even though I saw how much the customer in front of me paid, or the cabbie who rigged his meter on the way to the bus station.
