This is what I HATE with the U.S.:
  • They don't use the metric system GO METRIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most important is to convert to metric, or I hate the country forever!!
  • They don't use 24-hour clock system, AM/PM is crap
  • Many cars has read rear turn signals light (IT SHOULD BE YELLOW!) Red is harder to see because it's same light as back lights. And I will only buy car with amber light.
  • Too many regular trees, forest (For example in Northeast, especially NJ)
  • Not using European sizes
  • The coins should be numeric, how does non-U.S. people know what Dime, Quarter, Penny, Nicel etc. mean? Put numbers on them!!
  • The dollar bills should be different color and/or size.
  • Too many overweight people (This doesn't really bother me, but everyone is considering USA with fat people)
  • They don't allow fireworks in some of the states (NJ for example)
  • There's no ''Second day of Christmas on Dec 26, and second day of Easter, which is day after easter)
  • Few holidays
  • BAD BAD public transportation
  • Too much work, stress, few holidays!
What don't you like in/with the United States?

See what I mean. NorthNJ all over again. Starts off not too bad, then turns into a real troll. Just move back to Sweden and shut-up about how we suck here in the US.

Mattias, make sure you bring your helmet and rubber pencil to class. We are going to work on your English. Then we will see the school psychologist and discuss your issues with necrophilia.

Stop saying NorthNJ, I'm not him!
I don't hate USA, it's only 13 things that I do hate.
No, I won't move back to Sweden because the daylight is short during the summer, and only 9.2 million people live there, and summers are not warm enough.

Lol, so your telling me that out of 9.2 million people you couldn't find someone dumber than yourself?

I guess a country of over 300million should improve your odds, good luck!

I think you just have a hard time adapting (don't use european sizes, metric system for example)
most of these are just childish (color of our money?) rants about really meaningless things. The Only things i agree on are fat people (no offense, but they kinda gross me out), and bad public transit (its great in a few cities though)

Well, I agree with him on the mass transit issue. I hate that about this country also. And, to top it all off, he is in one of the best areas for mass transit in the country and he still hates it. egad!
Regular trees??? I don't get this one at all. (vs. irregular trees???)

Man I envy you...you must have zero real problems in your life if you're concerned about the color of our money and the regularity of our trees.
