The drinking culture can get pretty fuckin old at times here, even though I drink. Also the anti-social behaviour teens, or "Scangers" as we call them, are everywhere. They should all be forced onto an Island off the coast and then sink the Island!

For Caribbean culture it would be :Everyone minding each other's businesses gets really irritating. Families not wanting to be shamed for various things like low earnings/not being in the medical profession, law or education profession, children not doing too well in school, having outsiders know how they run their households. Expecting everyone to want to party all the time. The dichotomy of women/girls being either chaste and virtuous with conservative attire or apparently wanton seductresses scantily clad.

For British culture it would have to be the larger louts, binge drinkers. All that tea drinking. Rushing everywhere. Not speaking to your neighbours.

I dislike the extroverted nature of us Americans. It makes it hard for some people to fit in. I'm seen as an outcast when I'm not constantly initiating conversation with people...

A lot of things, mostly easterners.
Nope, not talking about foreigners.

I hate how schools and society in general over here, constantly discourage children to do what they like, to follow their dreams.
Back when i was in school, teachers always used to talk about following a set path, get a diploma and go get a decent job. Even the notion of doing something different was always immediately waved away as ridiculous and stupid. We even have saying for it, doe normaal dan doe je al gek genoeg. Which basically means, just act normal, then you're already acting crazy enough.
I always hated that saying.

I hate that America pretty much tries to whitewash its history. Over the past few years, theyve been trying to either omit or blatantly change events in history books that makes America look like its a country thats done nothing wrong. Stop trying to sweep shit under the rug.

Neds probably. I mean, it's said that you find "chavs" all over the UK but I think that they're overall the worst thing about Scottish culture. I love my country but it's only when you get into university (where there are little to no neds) that you realise how much they ruined high school. They're practically the only racist people in Scotland (not all of them are racist either) and they're probably responsible for the life expectancy being around 40 in parts of Glasgow - even if the country's roughness is somthing we're secretly proud of. I mean, in Scotland we're often proud of even our flaws, at least joking about them, but we all do hate neds. We have a strong drinking culture but the problems with that are caused by the neds. Having europe's murder capital is caused by the neds. Also sectarianism is caused by the neds - and in Scotland we've had a lot of problems with sectarianism.

I'm pretty damn proud of my country and it's culture so it's pretty hard to figure out anything I hate about it.

That is one of the things that horrified me the most when I moved from Europe to America. That was when I was old enough to think for myself. The south has the #gunpride mentality that scares me. When an angry Texas comes to your door with an assault rifle to complain to the kids and wife (not the father) that my dad had an Obama poster in his yard... Fun times. Only in the South.

Plebeians who are so petty that they can't even exercise the measly effort required to extend a pinkie forth when sipping their tea. To neglect said act is to imitate the actions of low-class commoners and utterly disgraceful. It's a well-known fact that, when in the company of others be them family or otherwise, you exercise proper etiquette when indulging in one of our most prestigious of past-times, second only to spectating sport events in the queen's company.

On a more serious note, probably chavs.

The fact that it can't seem to elect a decent president.

I'm looking at you Stalin.
