A Reddit Discussion about which social norms are weird in the United States but normal in the rest of the world.

People Share Things That are Weird in America, But Normal in the Rest of the World

The United States is a country that really likes to do things it's own way. I remember in elementary school we had a unit on measuring temperature, and my teacher showed us a map of countries that use Celsius vs countries that use Fahrenheit. The only countries that used Fahrenheit were the USA and Liberia. The US was like, “I'm going to commit to this measurement, even if my sole ally is a country with a population less than half the size of Ohio.” That's what I call standing your ground. It's…

Stubborn Dude Makes Hobby Out of Refusing to Pay Account Closure Fee

When faced with annoying hidden fees lurking in the “terms of service” section of every account contract, most people will just begrudgingly pay the damn $50 and move on with their lives. But a small percentage of impressively spiteful people refuse to let them win. u/fredsam25 is just one example of the sort of person who will go well out of their way just to stick it to the man , even if it takes several years.

Dad Gets Roasted for Lying to Daughter Instead of Taking Advantage of Teachable Moment

Parenting is tough. What might seem like a mundane little parenting mistake to a parent could very well negatively affect a child's behavior for years to come. Not gonna lie, when I read u/tycjy 's post inquiring whether he was an a-hole for secretly eating cupcakes before his 10-year-old daughter could get to the frosting, I thought, “what's the big deal?” But what do I know? I've not yet been blessed with the miracle of children. Plenty of parents didn't hesitate to critique OP's parenting sk…

Boss Calls Employee 'Privileged' and 'Lazy' for 'Only' Working 60 Hours Per Week

Why is it so hard for some bosses to treat their employees like human beings? There are about 112 waking hours in a week (assuming the average adult gets 8 hours of sleep per night). That means, if you work a full time job, you only have 72 precious hours of free time. If you work 60 hours a week? Make that 52 hours of free time. One redditor on r/antiwork said that their boss expects them to work over 60 hours per week doing hard labor under the hot sun. At a job like that, is there even time…

Toxic Mother Tries To Force Daughter To Leave College To Raise Her Siblings

Older daughters are often forced to be third parents for their younger siblings. Many parents have more kids than they can reasonably care for, putting excessive pressure on their older children during their teenage years. Teenagers already go through enough stress, trauma, and anxiety without the element of rearing children. They didn't ask to be parents, yet they are forced to perform that role as if it's their duty. Redditor u/Dangerous-Host9819 is one of those eldest daughters. Her mother e…

CEO Doesn’t Invite Engineers to Company Party, so They Throw a Bigger One and Expense It

When the head of a company treats some of their employees with respect and others like garbage, do they expect those undervalued workers to just take it? When one CEO prohibited all the hard-working engineers at the company from attending their massive customer appreciation party (that all the sales employees were invited to, by the way), the engineers maliciously complied with the help of their VP.

Employee Finds Out They're About to Get Laid Off, Finds Best Ways To Make Their Employer Uncomfortable

There's nothing worse than getting laid off . Just kidding, there is something objectively worse than that: finding out you're getting laid off from an outside source days before it happens. Being terminated without pay is possibly worse than getting let go, but getting let go always feels somewhat slimy, especially when your department is seemingly cut for no reason. Getting laid off is like saying, “we'll give you a little unemployment as a treat.” It's seemingly innocuous, but it's just anot…

Boss Berates Deli Worker for Not Serving Karen Minutes Before Closing, Employees Maliciously Comply

This humble redditor's tale of retail hell has it all—the entitled Karen who makes demands minutes before closing and leaves a nasty review when she doesn't get her way. The unreasonable boss who expects the employee to do the work of ten people but chews them out if they log even 15 minutes of overtime. And the triumphant workers who show their boss the meaning of malicious compliance .

Thread Discusses Common Things People Base Their Whole Personalities On

Human beings love to stuff themselves into little categorical boxes in order to simultaneously fit in and stand out. But to strongly identify with something outside yourself sounds pretty absurd when you really think about it. Is the type of breakfast cereal you consume really such an integral part of your core being? Do you feel like the bands you listen to represent the whole of your personality ? Not to get all philosophical, but I'm pretty sure the things people tend to base their entire pe…

Karen Demands That Cashier Override Sale So She Can Use Coupon, Ends Up Paying More

Sometimes it seems like Karens are so determined to ruin some poor cashier's day that they're willing to ruin their own in the process. When an especially unreasonable Karen stormed into u/Available-Capital476 's workplace demanding that they override the 30%-off sale price on an item so that she could use her 20%-off coupon, OP maliciously complied. You should never miss an opportunity to teach a Karen a valuable lesson. Though, it seems like this particular Karen didn't learn a thing.

Entitled Employer Expects Employee to Run Work Errands During Lunch & Still Have Time to Eat

One day at work, redditor u/unitedstatesofLABIA wasn't feeling super hungry, so they agreed to help their boss with a few errands. Big mistake. It's easy to let these things slide in the moment, but the consequences of letting bosses cross boundaries—like using lunch breaks for work-related errands—can come back to bite you in the long run. That's why we have things like regulation in the first place. Without regulation, exploitation is inevitable.
