Top Ten Ways to Annoy an American


The Top Ten

1 Speak to Them In a Non-English Language

Thisw wroks very well!

Since I can't speak anything but English and maybe1-10 in Spanish, this would annoy me so much - mpgami

Because the only language they know is English.

I've been spoken to in Japanese, Korean, and Cantonese before... And I'm barely even fluent in mandarin! - keycha1n

2 Think All of Them Are Fat

We aren't all fat, but id say a good chunk of us are really unhealthy. But not really because we're gluttonous sloths, our brains are surrounded by so many rich and sugary foods, that our brain finds really hard to resist. - keycha1n

3 Try to Kick Them Out of the Country Because They Aren't Native Americans

Many white bigots are trying to kick every immigrant, even if they're legally here, out of the country, so talk about the irony. - ethanmeinster

You should see modern British politics, Ethan. - PositronWildhawk

This list is racist!

My ancient ancestors came by boat, your ancient ancestors walked via the Bering Land Bridge; quit making a big deal about it.

4 Think That They Do Nothing Right

There are things we do right. It's really sad that there are people who don't realize that.

5 Refer to Soccer As Football

I like how people are criticizing us for not knowing football/soccer. Just because we use a different term doesn't mean we don't know what it is. I know a whole bunch of kids at my school who probably know more about football/soccer than you guys do! - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

This does sometimes cause an issue when talking to elementary-age kids, but anyone from high school age and older may ask you to clarify "American football or Soccer? ", because its actually up to YOU, as the one speaking, to clarify what you mean.
How else are they supposed to know? Flip a coin?

Do that all the time. Mexican "my favorite football team is Real Madrid"-American"What is this dude talking about"?

Oh that's a good one! - MostTalented_BoyX

6 Talk About Islam

America: A land with religious freedom. Yeah right. Many people are protesting against Islam. Once when I was on the I-5, I saw this banner that said " No Islam". That just sickens me. It's really hard on American Muslims. - ethanmeinster

From what I understand, this issue is very prevalent in many other countries as well.
Ignorance and intolerance are not exclusive to or a creation of America (USA) and is definitely not even something this country led to its fruition throughout the woked - Billyv

7 Serve Them Only McDonald's

I used to like McDonald's until I learned in science that a French fry from there will NEVER mold because of all the added things! GROSS! I'm sorry for all those people who go there and never knew this!

A lot of us are beginning to hate McDonald's. We love good quality food too. There's a whole mix of cuisines in America. There's always something that will satisfy your appetite. - ethanmeinster

Serve them only? This implies you have them tied up and held prisoner, and they have no say in the matter.

I used to like McDonald's. Then I found out what was in the burgers. - PianoQueen

8 Be Atheist

America is probably one of the worst first world countries if you're atheist. You'd probably be forced to follow the gospel. It's totally unlike Europe. - ethanmeinster

Infamous creationist museum & Ark Encounter!

A lot of Atheist in America.

"You'd probably be forced to follow the gospel"?
What a stupid and untrue statement.
Forced by who? And forced how?

9 Tell Them That the Moon Landing Was Fake

Probably the greatest thing for the world is that the first human in space WAS a Russian.
It sparked the Space Race that really got the American technological innovations going, and took the US from being second into space by a few months to the surface of the moon in 8 years.
We are still benefitting today from the tech breakthroughs that were created by the American aerospace industry.

Or tell them that the first man in space was a Russian cosmonaut. - ethanmeinster

Why does nobody have any faith in our space program?

This is how I annoy the world.

The Contenders

11 Tell Them About Socialism
12 Believe That The Stereotypes About Them Are Facts

I’ve been here all my life and I know enough people from outside of my country to belive this. The stereotype that we’re ignorant and fat is horrible and inaccurate.

13 Let Them Meet Kim Jong-Un

Even meeting Kim Jong-Un's buddy Dennis Rodman could be very annoying.

14 It’s aluminium not aloominum

No its colour not color

15 Speak In a British Accent

This is totally false, Americans LOVE British accents, and also those from Australia, New Zealand, and especially Ireland.

It's still English, but nothing like American English. I mean, can someone point out how you pronounce maths with an "s" at the end? - ethanmeinster

My mom thinks British accents are hot. Is this weird? - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

British accent is sexy...

16 Use Bad Grammar

Bad grammer anoys Mee n' my frend s dog who names is frank - DislikeMyComment

17 Keep Shouting in a Cowboy Voice, "Ya'll Come on Down to the Walmart!"
18 Say Puerto Rico Is Better Than USA

Puerto Rico IS part of the USA, as is Guam, US Virgin Islands, and a few other territories/protectorates, and their residents are US Citizens, but they are just not a state.

19 Tell Them How Terrible Their Government Is

No, we would agree with that.

20 Talking about slavery

I think it would be good way to accuse or criticize american people about slavery, by making them to feel ashamed of themselves or guilty - especially white Americans.

Saying to them that the country is not good enough for black people with no respect at all.

Also thinking of their dreams to change the country is fake or unnesscary.
