* Switching Keyboards between France or Belgium (using AZERTY) and most other European countries (using QWERTY) can be a pain since so many keys are still at the same place, just not all of them. Especially frustrating when you're typing your password.

* Switching Keyboards between either France or and Belgium (using AZERTY) or Germany, Austria and Swizerland (using QWERTZ) and most other European countries (using QWERTY) can be a pain since so many keys are still at the same place, just not all of them. Especially frustrating when you're typing your password.password.
** This problem can be solved by developing enough muscle memory however: Learn to touch type all of the special symbols AND how to change the input layout to your preferred format, and the difference between the marks on the keyboard and the input layout will not pose a problem any more.

* Their are some attempts to avert this however. For Example
** A Galil Ace (now marketed just as the Ace) features a larg selector switch where the AK and previous galil had their dust cover selectors even though its not necessary for the design anymore. They also feature another much smaller selector switch on the other side in the style of most other rifles.
** The Beretta ARX-160 has a selector switch on each side and places them so vertically between where they would be on an M-16 or AK derivative (the two most popular assault rifle styles), so that the user at least feels where the control is if the reflexively go for where it would be on either platform. Similarly it has three magazine releases and the cocking handle can be rotated to either side easily.



* In the firearms industry, gun manufactures can't seem to even pick a side to put major control on much less put them in a specific position. If you take shooting up as a hobby at some point you will try to reach for a bolt handle that isn't there or awkwardly thumb the area where you thought a safety was.

* For people that browse [[ThisVeryWiki the wiki]] on mobile browsers, you are bound to run into a [[TabExplosion tab bomb page]] every once in a while. Pressing Back closes the tab on Chrome Mobile for Android, if there is nowhere to go to. Made all the better if you have the on-screen nav bar and you edit. Have fun trying to type commas, but closing your tab instead.

* A variant where a character's muscle memory affects not himself but the audience: during the Yotsuba arc of ''DeathNote'', Higuchi habitually opens and closes Rem's Note like a Japanese book, even though the Note is Western-styled and this leaves the front cover face down. [[spoiler:This helps in concealing the cover, which would let the audience identify the Note as originally Ryuk's, until the reveal.]][[/folder]]

* Different countries have different rules for which side of the ride one drives on, which also determines what side of the car the driver's seat is on. Many countries, including the United States and most of Europe, have you driving on the right side of the road, while some other countries, such as Britain and Japan, have you drive on the left. This can cause problems for people moving from a country that drives on one side of the road to a country that drives on the other side.

* In ''Film/IpMan'' ''2'', there's a fight between [[TheHero the titular protagonist]] and [[BigBad Twister]]. That is, [[CoolVersusAwesome a Chinese martial artist vs. a British boxer]]. During the match, Ip Man forgets that the fight is being fought under boxing rules and accidentally kicks Twister in the face, which causes him to be penalised.

* Traditionally Chinese and Japanese are written top to bottom, right to left. Western writing goes from right to left, top to bottom. It can be common for speakers of those languages to look at the right end of a page where a Chinese/Japanese text would begin but a Western text would end.

* Certain ASUS laptops have the power button as a key on the keyboard, next to Delete. This can be a problem when the user is trying to delete something and has to avoid accidentally powering off their laptop.

** Apple also decided to default to a reverse scroll direction starting with [[MacOS OS X Lion]], where two-finger or mouse wheel scrolling down would now scroll ''up'' and vice versa so it better emulates a modern touchscreen interface. Fortunately, you can change it back to the old way with the click of a checkbox in System Preferences.

* The release of [[MacOS OS X Mavericks]] saw the switching of the positions of the "Open in New Tab" and "Open in New Window" options in Safari's right-click menu. Now, users used to the earlier layout (especially frequent Wiki/TVTropes browsers) will be constantly opening windows instead of tabs by accident.
