Things That People From All Over The World Find Weird About America That Americans Don’t Realize (25 pics + 1 gif)

Restaurants that serve ice in your water no matter the weather.

Hot, cold, it doesn’t matter! But really, when there are more ice cubes in the glass than actual water, you start to question the rationale behind it all.

Air conditioning. Everywhere. All the time.

In the summer, you go from a sweltering 103 degrees outside to an eyelash-icicle–inducing -17 in the supermarkets.

The nightmare that is tipping.

So you’re telling me that you have to leave a tip even if the service was mediocre, and then you also have to calculate said tip between 10 and 20% of the bill’s total to figure out how much you’re expected to leave??

Nope.

The ungodly portion sizes at restaurants.

One American meal is enough to feed a whole French family for a week.

The waiters who come back to check on you every three minutes.

If it wasn’t okay, we would say something!

Waiters refilling your glass as soon as the water dips below the halfway point.

Why not just leave a jug of water on the table? Everybody’s lives would be a whole lot easier. We can serve ourselves!

Pharmacies that also sell candy, soda, cigarettes, beer….

The size of the cars.

And the highways are just as supersized.

Three-liter wine bottles.

Being asked for your ID when you enter a bar or buy a beer, even though you are clearly over 30 years old.

Strangers smiling at you.

In the street, at the supermarket. EVERYWHERE.

People wearing workout clothes when they’re not at the gym and flip flops when they’re not at the beach.

People who go to the store in their pajamas.

There is something endearing and remarkable about really not giving any fucks.

The currency all looks the same.

What’s a $1, what’s a $5, who knows? They’re all the same size and the same color. It makes no sense.

TV shows with commercial breaks that last longer than some scenes.

On American TV, a 40-minute episode actually lasts an hour with all the commercials. That’s 20 minutes of my life I’ll never get back…

Prices are always displayed without tax.

That bracelet you wanted because it was “such a deal”? Yeah, not so much once they add in the tax at checkout.

Stores and restaurants that are open 24/7.

People who fill your bags at the supermarket.

When someone says “how are you?” but they really mean “hello” and actually DGAF how you are.

Flags. Everywhere.

Just in case you’ve forgotten what country you’re in.

People who drink their coffee while walking.

Coffee is meant to be savored while sitting on a terrace, not chugged as you rush from meeting to meeting.

Deep-fried food covered with sauces galore.

The price of cheese.

Being able to use your debit card without entering your PIN, just with your signature.

A bit risky, no?

This travesty they have the audacity to call “French bread.”

And unadjustable showerheads.

How the heck am I supposed to rinse down under with this thing, huh?

Some of these things aren't actually bad. "Oh no! Someone bagged my groceries for me!". "Someone smiled at me!" I'm so upset!

3 litre wine bottles is fine with me as long as it doesn't taste like iron filings and sugar.
