Global Netizens are sharing a dozen things the Americans aren’t ready to hear, so buckle up! the opinions are absolutely brutal.

The current imperialist flag. So far.

Non-Americans have some strong opinions and questions when it comes to the US, and according to this viral Reddit thread, they’re not afraid to show it. Recently we asked non-Americans, “What’s something that Americans aren’t ready to hear?” and the results are fascinating.


Here are some of the top-voted responses:

1.”A lot of your favourite food brands make better versions of their products here. America often gets the short end of the stick.”

u/YodasChick-O-Stick

“American living in Germany — can confirm. Philadelphia cream cheese is so much better here!”

u/bursatella

YOU are the ‘foreigner’ for me and another 220 countries!

u/TaikoLeagueReddit

“Apparently, they aren’t ready to hear that people from countries that aren’t ‘America’ do not consider themselves as being from ‘foreign’ countries.”

u/adlcp

3.”American bathroom stalls are exposed as fuck. A grown man could crawl under one of them, and the vertical gap has a big enough gap to make full-on eye contact with anyone walking by.”

4.”Many other countries get minimum four weeks of paid vacation leave for employees and paid maternity leave — even for the father.”

u/Zahliamischa

5.”Staying alive isn’t something that should cost more than the person’s net worth.”

u/LorckFrak

“You live in the main global superpower. A country that can wipe a lot of other places off the map because country has so much wealth — yet people die of treatable health problems because they can’t afford to go to the doctor.”

u/cloudpeak36

6.”The amount of food you waste is wild.”

7.”The way you add tax to everything at the cash till is mental. Just tell me what it costs on the fucking label!”

u/Sufficient_Vanilla18

8.”Treating your president like someone you worship is bizarre. As an Aussie, I don’t understand worshipping the royals, either.”

u/Appropriate_Sun6311

9.”The US is a great place to be rich and a bad place to be poor.”

u/IllustriousGuard1943

10.”The quality of your fast food is absolutely horrible compared to that of Canada’s. I’m referring to the same chains: Burger King, McDonald’s, etc.”

11.”You DO have an accent.”

u/imakeverylittlemoney

12.”It’s okay to have healthcare not tied to your employment with a massive, fat middleman in between.”

u/yongrii

13.”School shootings are an almost uniquely American problem. The rest of the world is disgusted. Truly. The need for children to practice ‘active shooter drills’ is an unfathomable sci-fi dystopian horror for us.”

u/JessieOwl

14.”TURN THE VOLUME DOWN — YOU’RE TOO LOUD.”

Americans can always be identified before you see them 😂

15.”Forcing students to go into debt for further education is disgusting. One should be able to get more education without having to risk never financially recovering.”

u/uckin_anti_pope

16.”You all eat too much sugar.”

u/whtsinthename

“I lived in the US for six months. Shortly after moving, I bought a loaf of bread and made a sandwich, but it was so sweet! I told my housemates that I think I’d accidentally bought a dessert bread. They tried it. NOPE — regular bread. It was just FULL of sugar!”

u/goldboldsold

17.”Seriously though, why is it so expensive to call an ambulance?”

u/Single_Ad6775

18.”Tipping in America is BS. Owners of restaurants and places need to pay normal wages.”

19.”Your lack of a cohesive trade union movement screws your lowest-income workers and allows/encourages your political parties to pander only to the elite.”

u/juzzy23

20.”Your education system is far worse than you think.”

u/mdsMW

“Not just worse, but also really, really bad in terms of metrics and history.”

u/BeastmasterBG

21.”The world doesn’t revolve around your country.”

u/rayyfcb19

22.”Not everyone speaks English in the rest of the world. Learn another language; it’s good for the soul and the brain.”

23.”The “World” Series ONLY happens in the USA

u/Kommonwealth

24.”If you tell me you’re Polish, but you were born in USA, never went to Poland, never learned the language, and you don’t give a f*ck? Yeah, you’re not Polish — you’re American. Same goes for any other nationality.”

u/Robert_Kurwica

“Just because your grandma or whatever was Irish/Italian/German etc., doesn’t mean you’re Irish/Italian/German etc. — and that’s okay.”

u/TheAndorran

And finally…

25.”We aren’t jealous of you, like, at all.”

u/Junkmatt
