place of birth

Last week I was on a train  and a couple with a small girl were sitting next to me. Suddenly the girl turned to the man and yelled: "You are Scottish, we are English; you were born in Scotland, I was born in England, mummy was born in England." She repeated these sentences nearly ten times and each time with more bitter tone. I looked at that woman; she had a big stupid grin on her face and seemed very triumphant! and then I looked at that man, he seemed very embarrassed with his head down!! I was sure that small girl did not know what she was saying and just was immitating her mummy like a parrot. They left the next stop and I was thinking that stupidity has no boundaries! That idiot woman thought that she was superior to his partner because of her place of birth!! Unfortunately it has some deep root in the society and those ignorants that think this way are not few.
