Common misconceptions about your country?

Recommended Posts

Name your country and the common misconceptions that people get wrong about your country/culture.

I'll start...

England:

We all know the Queen :clownery:

That it rains all the time

We only eat Fish and Chips :katyfrog: (we do eat it a lot though :gimmemoar:)

We're all from London:gagasmile:

That England and the UK are the same thing (there's three other countries)

We all sound like the Queen

Same here, welcome to India!

(even tho if the second one is kind of true)

  • Indians are not Asians
  • All Indians are smart in math and love it
  • All Indians are vegetarians
  • India is a poor country, despite being one of the fastest developing countries in the world :jeanluc:
  • Indian people cannot speak english
  • Indian cuisine is only curry and rice
  • Everyone is hindu
  • What is sikhism?
  • Life is like bollywood
  • tReE dAncINg

I was waiting for someone to say this. :cheese: Me too, tbh, and that's mostly because of Geography in school. I'm always surprised by how little a lot of Americans know about geography. Obviously, I might be wrong - that's just from what I've seen. That could just be the American education system that thinks America is at the center of the world. Do Americans even have Geography as a subject? Where I live, we have Geography as a mandatory subject for like 3 years (if not more). But I remember we were legit told to memorize countries by name and location. Not saying that's useful, but I'm certainly not complaining about it because I like knowing trivia and stuff. :)

Ugh, I was in Ireland for an exchange program, and the students from Romania were awesome. They gave me some kind of traditional homemade booze - it was really good, and I got lowkey ****faced. :cheese: Also, one of them was super cute, and I had a huge crush on him. I kind of embarrassed myself by getting drunk and telling the cute guy's brother that I liked him. I was mortified the next day. :weusay:

I just realized the irony of it all - not me generalizing Americans in a thread about cultural misconceptions. :cheese:
