    23 Complaints Other Countries Have About Australia That Are Honestly Kinda Valid

    It's hard to admit, but these people may have a point.

    1. Why do we lure people in with a false agreement, before revealing our true answer: No.

    @tqashow Why do Australians answer questions with “Yeah, Nah”? Why don’t they just disagree from the start?

    2. Why do we go barefoot while driving, at the shops and at pretty much all venues — even if we're nowhere near a beach?
