What can I say except it’s a stereotype for a reason?
(Though there’s another stereotype lurking in there — the angry expat woman — which is also, well, a stereotype for a reason.)
Or maybe archetype is the word I’m really thinking of? An archetype that gets taken up and roleplayed, in some cases? Hmm. Makes me think of Graham Greene novels, now…
