17 Tiny Changes That Would Actually Make The US The Best Country In The World
WHY DON'T PUBLIC BATHROOM STALLS HAVE FULL-LENGTH DOORS????
On Tuesday, a Reddit thread asked people, "What is popular in other countries that hasn't caught on in America?" Here are some of the best submissions:
1. Full-sized toilet stall doors in public bathrooms.
2. Price stickers that reflect the total after taxes.
"In other countries, the price on the shelf includes all local/state/national sales taxes and is the final price that you pay."
4. Meat pies.
6. A wider variety of bread.
"OMG. When I traveled to Europe, I realized our bread is a damn joke. We lack the variety and freshness found in other countries by 100 fold. I found over 100 types I had never even heard of."
9. High-speed trains.
"Something something Americans are too spread out for high-speed trains to be economically viable. China is a big country too, and they're building high-speed trains and the infrastructure to support them like crazy."
10. Lunch breaks that are encouraged — or even enforced.
11. An average number of vacation days that allows for real travel or relaxation.
"Gap years. And real amounts of vacation time from work."
13. Widespread use of mobile payment systems.
14. More chocolaty chocolate.
"If I recall correctly, you need a certain percentage of cocoa to call it chocolate, and in the US, that percentage is a lot lower than elsewhere. That's why Cadburys > Hershey's. Even worse, however, is that you can now get 'Cadburys' in the US, but as I understand it, Hershey's just paid them to use the name, so even if you avoid Hershey's, and go for the better option, you're still getting the same shitty chocolate."
