So apparently it automatically redirects your comment if the words "#1" (or any other # presumably) are in your post

I'm really not seeing how that has anything to do with OP's new friend's stupidity. Also, yeah, reread the FML you didn't quite grasp it.

Yeah him having a job had nothing to do with this post. He stated the fact that he worked at Burger King because his friend just assumed that because he's Asian that automatically implies he must not know what a burger looks like. Which, in my opinion, is really ignorant.

That's where he moved to. (American usually means "USA-ean", but techincally any place in The Americas has "American Culture". Especially Canada, which is, probably, the largest country there.)

#41, There are more than three countries in North America. Central America without Mexico, which you're counting as one of the three, is also North America. That includes Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, etc.

@41 uhh there's also South America, and Central America. in his post before that he clearly said "the America's" which would mean all three.

North America... The United States, then there's South America which is Mexico, Canada is part of the Americas. We were too lazy to make up a new name.

Um no mofo canada is its own country and america didn't name us! We got the name from the first nation people that lived here :)

#37 umm no, your continent, and country got it's name from the Italian explorer and caetographer (map maker) amerigo vespucci. whats really saddening is people from other parts of the world tend to know more about American history and geography than some Americans.

#37 is from Canada, which was not named by or for anything to do with Vespucci. It's named after a Huron-Iroquois word for village/settlement "kanata". The continent of North America was named after Vespucci but not the countries of Canada and Mexico. It is common vernacular that America refers to the United States but it isn't technically correct as it is only one country on the continent. That also excludes South America, also named for Vespucci.

Amerigo Vespucci named the continent. Canada was named by Jacques Cartier who took the name for 'Village' or 'Town' and confidently told everyone else that it was the name of the land. So I guess #37 was accurate about the name of the country. What's really saddening is that foreigners don't read the whole comment before correcting someone. Incorrectly. I can make inaccurate and sweeping statements too. See?

Except that the guy assumed OP didn't know what American culture or burgers even are just because OP is Asian. Who is being racist here?

Reply

You're saying OP is being racist...against himself? Also, I'm relatively sure almost everyone has at least heard of a hamburger, immigrant or not.

#24 Expecting too much of his Canadian friend? I don't think so. The guy just assumed that because OP is Asian, he couldn't possibly have ever eaten anything else than Asian food. That's a bit stupid to be honest. Like someone said, there are American fast food restaurants all over the world, you don't have to be in North America to know what a burger is. And it's even weirder because OP is from Seattle, so I'm assuming that he doesn't have any accent that could have made the guy think "Alr

Good point about McDonalds. I guess there's no excuse for introducing people to hamburgers. Suggestion withdrawn.
