Strange habits of Americans who enrage tourists
Every nation has its own characteristics, which are often confused by foreigners. Many tourists come to another country to get acquainted with the traditions of local residents, and leave in complete bewilderment.
"Faktrum»Talks about the very strange habits and traditions of the people of the United States who can drive anyone crazy!
The restaurants always serve ice water, regardless of the weather. It's cold outside or hot anyway. But what is really strange is when there is much more ice in a glass than water itself.
Air conditioning is always and everywhere at full capacity.
The portions in restaurants are just astronomically huge. One dish intended for the average American, enough for a whole family of foreigners.
The waiters every 3 minutes fit and wonder if you are comfortable, whether the food is tasty, etc. Every 3 minutes!
The stores sell 3 liter bottles of wine. And sometimes even 6-liter.
You are always asked for an identity card in a bar or in a shop if you buy beer, although it is obvious that you are in 40 for years.
American cars are just gigantic. Especially in comparison with European brands. By the way, the highway is also huge.
Money notes are very similar to each other. It is difficult to distinguish, for example, 1-dollar and 5-dollar bills, because they are all the same size and color.
You can pay by credit card, without using a PIN code, but only by putting your signature. It doesn't look too safe.
Pharmacies sell candy, soda, cigarettes and beer. Although many of our dreams about it!
Strangers are constantly smiling at you. On the street, in supermarkets, in public toilets - everywhere.
Many go to clothes for fitness, although they are not in the gym. And in the slates - not on the beach.
Often in the supermarket you can see people in pajamas. Because they don't care deeply, to be honest.
The TV ad breaks are terribly long. For example, the 40-minute episode of a series with advertising takes a whole hour.
American flags are everywhere. In case you forgot which country you are in.
Americans constantly drink coffee on the go. It seems wild to many foreigners, because they are used to enjoying a drink, sitting somewhere in a pleasant place, and not intercepting while on the run.
Watering the shower can not be regulated in any way, everywhere it is bolted directly to the wall.
Shops and restaurants are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Of course, it is convenient, but it is a great pity for the employees of these institutions.
