The United States of America is known for many great things. However, our country is also known for some… let’s say… not so great things. One example: Thanks to all of our fast food, deep fried, and all you can eat options, one third of the American population is obese!
Foreigners on Reddit share their biggest “WTF?!” moments while they were visiting the great US of A. Keep reading and check out these hilarious stories.
First night in LA watched as a stolen cop car and a million cop cars flew past me down Hollywood Blvd at 60mph at 10pm, then I turned and walked back into the Thai restaurant where I watched the fugitive get PIT maneuvered and shot dead live on the news via Helicopter chase cam.
Dude sitting next to us was excited to tell us we had officially “experienced” LA. Over the top car chases, action chase cam news, neon lights in Hollywood, an Asian restaurant that made me feel like I was in an art film…. he was right. (iwasnotmagnificent)
Google Earth had just come out, and my colleague at the University lab and I were looking at it… When I showed her Mumbai, my home city, she was blown away.
“You have buildings?” “Look, there’s an airport!” “Oh my god, you have cars?”. How the hell do you think we get around, I asked. Her reply still rings on my head. Not walking, not cows, not elephants, not bicycles, not horse drawn carts. She said camels. If I ever saw a camel in Mumbai I’d stop everything I’m doing and say “Holy shit that’s a fucking camel!” (karan812)
Tumbler Full of Soft Serve
Was at an all-you-can-eat buffet with a soft serve ice cream machine. As kids we thought we were being little pigs by swirling as high as we possibly could (while our parents weren’t looking or they certainly would have stopped us). The guy after us grabbed a full-sized drink tumbler and filled it up with ice cream. No shame at all. No child-like glee at making the mother-of-all sundaes. I suspect now it was something he did regularly. (malica77)
