I kinda think the Biggins family, besides Mela, is a little rude. It could just be the guest they were having, though. No matter how rude Tammy was, they were JUST as bad when they were chewing and burping when she was reading her story to them. The end part got me mad too. When Mela was reading off how the money was spent. I would have at least SEEMED more grateful or happy if I learned that my debts were paid off. The Dad was just like "Yeah, great. That B%^(@H is awful though. And I'm not saying Thank you"
And as nice and kind as Mela is, I bet her kids know even less of Asian culture than she does. Even if kids don't learn about it in school, they should know and learn about other cultures, rather than thinking that they only need to know about the U.S of Atm, which the whole world revolves around.
I'm not saying that the Biggins think that, but some people do.....Anyway, I hope I didn't sound condensending.
