On Tuesday, Reddit user u/esq__asked non-Americans to share the weirdest thing Americans have asked/said to them. It led to people sharing things Americans have said that are a combination of dumb, weird, and offensive.
So, yeah, here's what they said:
1."When an American asked me what it's like to have an accent. They thought that they had no accent and their voice was 'default,' basically."
6."An American asked, 'How long did you take to learn to use metric instead of normal measurements?' He genuinely didn't understand that metric was a system we actually used every day — we weren't constantly having to mentally convert measurements to feet or pounds to understand how big they really were."
