I gotta ask you guys a question,
I used to go "camping" with my family for vacations, mostly went to Spain and Italy. The places we went there were always a lot of people from holland/ the netherlands... and most of them were annoying as ****! I mean loud and obnoxious, they acted the way europeans describe americans, loud, rude, annoying... I also met a few people who were really nice though, but those could be counted on one hand...
Then later on I've been told that Amsterdam was a great place to visit, now this may have just been because of the weed or something, but damn...
Now here's my question, are you guys just as annoying when you're at home or are you actually somewhat kind there?

Well of course, all the assholes and uncivilised poor asses go to "the sun" for their holidays.
Civilised Dutch people go to Germany, or Denmark, or Sweden, or another nice country with great nature and culture.

A camping in Italy, I mean, what would you expect? It's just like Russians in Turkey, or Americans in Florida, people caring about hot weather only for their holidays = assholes.

Amsterdam is a great place, just don't go outside of the highway circling the inner part of the city, or even better, stay close to the small canals (grachten), and the only thing you'll hop in to is other tourists, or rich people who can afford to live there.
"No-go-areas" are Zuidoost, Sloten and Osdorp, but that's not because of Dutch people living there, it's more because of the moroccan immigrants (who also happen to only spend their vacation in warm countries)

So come visit my beautiful city, we have weed, blackjack and hookers

I rarely hear people saying nice things about our nature/culture (I'm from Denmark) so thanks for that :)

We usually go for warm places whenever danes go on holidays, probably because, as some french chick put it, Denmark doesn't have summer, there is green winter and white winter...

Also my family used to be somewhat poor... so yeah...

Lets just say that I know exactly what type of person you mean, and you can find those people in the Netherlands, but you'd have to look better. Only in those "all-inclusive" sunny southern hotels, they get filtered out of the Dutch general population. Perhaps your parents are from the same group as the assholes in the Netherlands come from, only Danes are extraordinary when it comes to things like behaviour. I mean, compare to England, Germany, Sweden, really any country in western Europe, and the Danish stand out:)
Only difference now? Copenhagen doesn't have weed and hookers;)

stand out how?

Oh and trust me, copenhagen has hookers and weed, only weed isn't legal everywhere, just in that little part of Copenhagen...

Turns out that DK and NL is quite alike afterall...

The dutch are excessively cheerful by nature, but Holland is a really nice place. Just don't go there in the winter.

they didn't seem cheerful at all!

They would sometimes just walk up to me, say something in dutch (expecting I too was dutch, being white and all) I'd be all like "What? sorry, I'm not dutch"
they'd just repeat whatever sentence while sounding annoyed, again I'd just say that I didn't understand what they were saying, then they'd just scoff angrily and walk away, I mean what the ****?

I went earlier this year for a couple weeks, never experienced anything like you described. But I'm American, so I might just be completely accustomed to asshatery

they're kinda hard not to notice when you're surrounded by them, I mean seriously, you go to Spain and expect spanish people roaming the streets, not dutch people acting like stereotypical americans...
