Norwegians stealing American jobs!
(That’s the sort of thing I would expect from an American, not a Norwegian. But I guess poor behavior knows no nationality.)

It's pretty un-Norwegian behaviour to be honest.Leo Tasker wrote: ↑Mon Feb 22, 2021 3:08 amYes, here in Norway littering is a big no-no. Occasionally there will be the odd beer can or Kvik Lunsj™ wrapper on the ground but in general it's very clean. For her to go to another country and show such a lack of respect for the locals is pretty classless imo.
Norwegian outdoor culture is still old school Western European socialist "Enjoy and share the great outdoors!" in many ways (of course it's more complicated than that, especially at the local government level, and you read some surprising comments online.)
But the attitude to the responsible enjoyment of nature with GoreTex trousers on is really admirable.
Tonje Blomseth's kind of at the place where selfie-culture and old school 'friluftsliv' meet. Busted by instagramming an out-of-season kill in a break on your reality show kind of captures the zeitgeist.

To be honest there are a lot of idiots here like in every other country. Comparatively less perhaps due to a higher general interest in nature and outdoor activities. But still plenty.
I think Musk Ox perfectly highlighted the root of the problem and the irony.
