Entitled Karen Pesters Woman For Speaking Welsh

Love to see a good case of the entitled Karen getting put in her place. Karen apparently took it upon herself to harass another woman for speaking Welsh, because according to Karen the only acceptable language to speak is English. Fortunately, the mom was ready to put Karen in her place. Check out some more Karen drama with this salty Karen who claimed she was sold a faulty machine, until proven otherwise.

Common Things In One Country But Rare In Others

Someone on AskReddit fired up a thread about various things that are common in one country, but generally unheard of in the rest of the world. The thread ends up doing a great job at highlighting how dang different the world can be outside of our respective cultural bubbles. Sometimes for better, sometimes for far worse.

Non-Americans Biggest Culture Shocks When Visiting America

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about non-Americans biggest culture shocks upon visiting America. It can be easy to forget how strange of a place America is, when you're living inside the bubble of chaos. A perspective from the outside looking in picks up on strange and normalized things like the sheer scale of food portions/drink sizes, or the over-sensationalized news, or those condescending commercials.
