Citizens Of The World Speculate How Their Country Would Behave At A Party

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.


Redditor amotyvukufyd asked:

"All the countries of the world are at a party. What is your country doing?"

Here are some of the best and most hilarious answers.

The United Kingdom is just leaving.

"UK: Leaving."

- TomasNavarro

"Not before slapping the knees and saying 'right.'"

- guido405

"Northern Ireland looks nervously at her sister before putting her sunglasses on and following."

- Casual-Notice

"As an American from the Midwest, we do a 'welp' knee slap. Then sit/stand for another 25 minutes before leaving."

- flyingtubesock

"Then talk in the porch. Then talk in the doorway. Then talk in the driveway. Then talk out the car window."

"'Well anyway.'"

"'Yuh, I guess.'"

"'See you around, I suppose.'"

"'Yuh you bet.'"

"Buzz of the window rolling up."

- Field_Marshall17

Argentina is in the backyard.

"Argentina is either playing football in the backyard with Brazil or aggressively telling whoever's at the grill how to cook a steak."

- thrashingkaiju

"Don't forget, they're also drinking fernet and coke, or even cheap wine and juice, out of a cut off bottle even though there were enough glasses for everyone."

- Unreasonableberry

"While listening to El Potro Rodrigo."

- thrashingkaiju

"For sure we're arguing with Texans over asado."

- Phormitago

"Texas would also totally be there despite not being a country itself."

- Bamboozle_

"Texas showing up to a party where only entire nations are invited is such a Texas thing to do."

- ThirdRook

Greece is making questionable choices.

"I'm Greek so I guess a lot of sex, wine and questionable financial decisions that will ruin us the morning after."

- PKassotis

"At least you have your club of friends who will drive you home when you pass out. My country, Argentina, will spend the night borrowing money. When they finally kick him out, he'll have to walk home, broke and alone. And it will start to rain."

- holeontheground

Poland fighting with Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine.

"Poland. In the corner with Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, drinking vodka and fighting each other. Poland fighting Belarus and Ukraine fighting Russia."

- Connect_Document3277

"With some EU guys walking by with fancy drinks, dropping some concerns."

- MeredithJohns

"And then Russia says 'Oh, you want some too?' And the EU guys turn and walk away."

- Fragrant-Principle20

"Then hours later writes a strongly worded comment to Russia's Facebook page. After spending 8 hours arguing over the exact wording."

- Sufficient_Leg_940

Germany brings the beer.

"I'm German and I'd say Germany would complain about the taste of the beer."

- NoeValleyCutie

"Germany should be bringing the beer. Please don't leave it to America who will bring some watery Coors Light!"

- hora_definitiva

"Wouldn't they discuss politics too?"

- Pizzamampf12

"We so would! I was thinking about what we would do what wasn't absolutely cliché (like bringing the beer). I feel we would not only discuss politics but also rant about it. And other stuff. I feel ranting is really something we like to do. But also Germany would be drinking way too much and be completely fine the next morning..."

- Loona_Moon

India is awkwardly dancing.

"India/that uncle dancing inappropriately in the middle of the dance floor."

- rao1411

"Not gonna lie, they got da best moves though."

- Mihirrrr

"I was gonna say India would be that aunty gossiping about and judging others' outfits/looks, but this one is better."

- aesthetic-freak-108

The USA is just destroying things for fun.

"USA. Chugging beers and trying to smash a foldable table by jumping on it."

- realbruhmoment2

"I think the US would be like a really obnoxious frat dude that's also kinda fun. Like waaaay over the top bragging... but also did bring the weed. Then word gets around that he has a gun on him and it makes everyone uncomfortable, but he says it's just cause Russia and China are packing too."

- whitexknight

"I figure we'd also be the one who obnoxiously insists on 'defending' every girl in the party- whether the girl wants it or not. Lots of 'do you wanna go?' energy, then trying to clean up any mess we make but just doing the absolute worst job of it while staying way, waaay too long after the party is over."

"We'd also get mad at China for stealing our famous brownie recipe even though we asked them to make it for us."

- PlasticElfEars

We aren't sure we want to be invited to that party.

Sounds like there's gonna be a lot of drama.

People Share The Facts They Wish They'd Never Learned

There's a reason people are prompted to say "Too Much Information" or 'TMI" in modern slang.

Most commonly, people are urged to say so when they've learned a piece of information that they think they would have been better off not knowing.

Information which caused a visceral reaction of one sort or another, be it disgust, sadness, anger or heartbreak.

Making them feel all the worse is knowing what they learned isn't an opinion, but the cold, hard truth.

Some of us dread going to the doctor's office, but keeping up with your checkups is important. You wouldn't want to have a sudden health emergency would you? (Keeping up with appointments is kind of difficult to do in a nation where so many people are uninsured, but that's a topic for another article...)

Ask a doctor, ask any doctor, and they're bound to have a story about a patient who came in for a routine checkup, not thinking that their symptoms were in any way important.

We heard some of these stories after Redditor Cuteregister1827 asked the online community,

"Doctors of Reddit, what was your worst, 'I don't think this is important, but—' patient?"

Could you be on board?

Unrequited love is tough to get over.

There's nothing worse than having your heart set on a crush who gives you butterflies, but they just don't feel the same way and would rather be with other people.

And while it's hard to accept the fact that "it's not meant to be," the reality of a person not being right for you can manifest in a way that can provide a huge sense of relief.
