Vehicles, vehicles, vehicles: “USA” It is a massive nation and public transport is missing. Therefore, most individuals personal no less than one automotive and use it for the shortest distances. You’d nearly suppose folks forgot how one can stroll or bike. Though I noticed many individuals bike, it was for sports activities, not for day-to-day transportation.
Use of slang OMG! NO WAY!!: So, apparently folks actually do say O.M.G. so much (in California that is) and different slang you hear on T.V. I assumed that was merely T.V. stuff.
Excessive sensitivity in the direction of race and faith.: Folks are typically very delicate about racial and non secular matters. I used to be embarrassed to ask a Costco worker the place the white chocolate was as a result of I used to be afraid she would inform me I used to be a racist.
Big serving parts: I am an enormous man and love consuming, however 50% of the time I may solely end half the meals on my plate (how do you guys do it?!).
Gigantic vehicles: I assumed a Land Rover was massive till I noticed the common pickup truck within the U.S.
Many cost choices: You’ll be able to pay with test, credit score, debit, money, or the rest of worth. Unbelievable. I am used to both paying in money or with my debit card. It is actually good enterprise sensible – you merely can not argue you do not have the cash, as a result of even when you do not.. you’ll be able to nonetheless pay on credit score.
Widespread weight problems: I used to be shocked to see the quantity of overweight folks within the U.S. I can absolutely perceive it although: the parts are massive, the whole lot has cheese in it, refills are free, purchases in bulk are cheaper, and many others.
Franchise, Franchise, Franchise: In California it is laborious to keep away from franchise eating places or shops. Though I’ve heard that in lots of different components of the nation that is completely not the case (e.g. Texas).
Superb presentation expertise: A 7 yr previous child from the U.S. would beat any European in a gross sales pitch. I discover the average American superb in presenting themselves, doing gross sales, explaining how issues work, and many others. I am jealous.
The USA preserves its nature: I used to be thrilled to see how far forward America is in preserving its lovely nature. Completely terrific, kudos to you guys.
