16 Europeans share the 'American problems' they can't understand.


We love to call America the "land of the free," but some of our pointless laws and traditions tell a different story.

A recent Reddit thread urged European people to share the "American problems" they can't understand. Get ready for a crash course in how weird America is.

1. Americans share this confusion and frustration over our pointlessly high drinking age.

21 Drinking age like whaaaat you can vote , go join the army , get married , have children and drive but you're too immature to drink ???!!???! - captainsincers

2. Fun fact: in other countries, tax is included in price so you actually pay what the price tag says.

Australian here, don't understand why tax isn't automatically added to price tags. - Android_frog

3. In European countries, calling out of work sick isn't frowned upon. What a concept!

I truly do not understand [limited sick days]. I mean, if you're sick you're.... you know, sick. I have tried, but I canno limit the time I'm sick. I don't think a lot of people can, so why tf limit sick days?

Here in The Netherlands we went, in my opinion, a bit overboard. You can be sick for one year, then your empoyer has to pay only 70% of your salary. After two years they can fire you. That's a bit long. But I read somewhere about people who have two sickdays a year, which is the other end of ridiculous. - Myana_1st
