A recent post on Reddit brought to light a strange cultural custom in Sweden where they do not feed their guests when dinner time comes around. After the user sebastian25525 posed the question, "What is the weirdest thing you had to do at someone's house because of their culture/religion?" Many people responded with strange and awkward moments at their friend's houses.

The most popular response came from a user who said they spent time at their Swedish friend's house and when it came time for dinner, the friend didn't invite them but told them to wait until their dinner was done.

This sparked many from all over the internet to share stories of their Swedish friends not inviting them to dinner, bringing to light the anti-social Swedish custom.

One Twitter user shared a story of when she moved to Sweden and her friend's mother told her to wait in the bedroom and play with toys while the family had dinner.

The topic of impolite Swedish families then developed into a larger discussion of the historical position Sweden took in colonialism. Many people on the internet are calling it #SwedenGate.

If a friend's family is not inviting you to dinner, it's probably best to call it a night and head home. It would be strange to play with your friend's toys while they enjoyed dinner together. The disrespect is unbelievable!
