The most annoying thing about the internet is that everyone assumes you are from the US or know everything about the US all the time.
As a British guy, I shouldn't have to know everything about the US or have to introduce myself as "The British guy" every time I talk to someone online. I also don't want to be treated like some mystical being from lands afar just because I speak a little differently.
The internet (unless you are playing a game where you can pick the server location) is a worldwide thing, that isn't based in one location. It can be used by anybody. Most people on the internet aren't even from the US.
And my biggest pet peeve through all this has to be when Americans say "the world" but really just mean "the US". The world is all countries, not just all the states.

AITA for changing the package pickup each time someone uses my email for orders?
So pretty much, there’s this guy who keeps ordering things with my email. He isn’t using any other personal information of mine so i don’t think it’s a privacy concern.
So back to the point, I will occasionally get emails from random websites about an order confirmation. I’ve never heard of most of those websites and I know for a fact none of my family members used my email to buy something.
With most emails, there’s a number, name and an address (I’m assuming it’s the persons address) attached. I’ve tried texting the number and even calling but I’ve never gotten an answer.
I’d always get emails from ups to confirm the pickup/drop off area. Ever since I’ve gotten the emails, I always change the location for delivery. So instead of it being delivered at his doorstep, it gets shipped to a post office 20 miles away. He can’t change that since like I said, it’s all attached to my email.
I recently got an email from the guy and turns out, the reason he keeps writing my email is becaus

LPT: If you might be late for something, don't try saving time from the drive.
If you're late to work/school/an event, please don't try to just drive faster. It's dangerous. The way I think of it: I spend about 8 minutes on the highway going 70 mph to get to class. Even if I were to try to go 100 mph for example, I would end up spending 5.6 minutes on the highway, which saves me less than 3 minutes. However, I've just endangered many people, including myself, and at the very least, I've risked getting a ticket.
Saving time should come from other things. You could spend less time showering, being on social media, or even by eating while getting ready. Getting up earlier/sleeping earlier would work the best.
TL;DR: If you're trying to drive faster to get somewhere on time, you're saving time in the wrong ways. Please stay safe.
LPT: When someone is going through a difficult time and is sharing it with you, don't talk about similar problems you're having as a way to relate. Instead, just listen.
When someone's sharing something difficult that they're going through, so many people get this urge to "empathize" by replying with similar struggles of their own. This is one of the worst things you can do when someone is trying to get something off their chest to you.
Instead of talking about yourself, just listen to them. Make them feel heard. Ask questions and help them work through it themselves. More often than we realize, people just to need to feel validated and heard when they're going through something personally difficult.
Years ago, I suffered a great loss, and turned to one of my friends for emotional support. His immediate response was, "Oh man, I'm really sorry to hear that. Because I remember when I had a similar loss, it was really rough for me. And what I felt was... etc." My friend wasn't trying to be insensitive or rude, but it reminded me that many people accidentally do this when dealing with someone else's grief.
