    Tax Isn't On Price Tags

    From Redditor u/perpetual8:

    TAX.

    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.).

    Rite Aid - I can get a flu shot, HIV test, a bottle of tequila, Snickers bars, and pizza pockets all from the same store. Awesome.

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