Why not put a f*cking price sticker that includes it so I don't have to work out if I have enough money for everything.

The Public Transportation Is Almost Empty
From Redditor u/ramdonperson:
Coming in from China, it was amazing how not crowded the public transportation was (well, after I got over the lack of public transportation). Sure, rush hour was busy, but I didn't have to wait for three trains to pass to rudely push my way into the subway (also, no one stole my stuff).

Squirrels Rule The Roads
From Redditor u/lol_miau:
[I] live in Eastern Europe. There are squirrels here, but when I visited Washington, they were basically roaming the streets (instead of just sitting on trees like here). Not really shocking, just surprising, since squirrels never get off trees here (and they live only in real forests, not parks, etc.).

IHOP - I can get an entire day's worth of calories in one meal.

I'm from Australia and I couldn't believe how high the water levels are in your toilet. Also, your drive-thru ATMs! Wild.
