People from Europe do not understand why the gaps in our bathroom stalls are so large. Actually, I don't really understand this either. There has to be a better way to do this! What pervert decided that this was the way?
First of all, why do we call the fake football "football" and why do we call the real football "soccer"? Rude! Also, people from other places around the world don't understand why we take America football so seriously. They think it's weird that people get scholarships for playing the game and people are accepted into certain colleges if they are great athletes. It's just how we do it, I guess.
We usually have a laundry room and if we don't, our washer/dryer is usually in the garage. If you go to Europe you will see that they keep their washer/dryer in the kitchen. They think it's weird that we don't have our washer/dryer in the kitchen and we think it's weird that they do. We also say tomato and they say tomahto so....
When you buy something overseas, the price that is listed on the tag is the price that you wind up paying. When we buy something here, we add sales tax and it's very confusing. Why can't we just add the tax to the listed price and call it a day?
If you travel, you will see very little water in toilet bowls. In some countries, you may see hardly any water at all. Why do we need so much water in our toilet bowls? Well, we do think that everything is bigger in America.... Just some toilet humor for you.
Overseas, coffee is a part of their culture. They sit with their coffee. They enjoy it and indulge. In the United States, we take our coffee and run! We should really take some time to smell the coffee every once and while. Don't cha think?
People from other countries do not understand why Americans have to blast the AC. Everywhere you go, it feels like you are in a freezer. It's hot outside, it's freezing inside. It's freezing outside, it's still freezing inside. I guess Americans like to be cold?
The same with our water. We need our drinking water to be freezing. Even if it's cold outside, we want ice, ice and more ice. Overseas you will never see ice in your water when you dine out. You'll be served room temperature water, slightly chilled if you are lucky.
Just like sales tax, people overseas are confused by tipping. Why can't we just get a bill that has the number of the amount that we owe with tip included? Why are we adding more money to the bill and why are we making people do math?
