Americans Don’t Even Know It’s Weird (20 pics)

“In the US ‘how are you’ needs only to be replied with ‘good, you?’ almost as a way of saying hi. Elsewhere people don’t really know how to respond when a stranger asks ‘how are you?’, ‘how you doing?’, or ‘how’s it going?'”

 

“I never thought of myself as loud until I went abroad and would hang up the phone after speaking in what I thought was an appropriate volume to find everyone around me was staring at me, and realized how much more quiet they were lol whoops”

 

“Just jumping in the car and driving a few hours. I live in a large western state and it seems every other weekend my family and I were in the car traveling for a few hours to see some site, go into Mexico or another state.

I have relatives in Switzerland and they were going to drive us to the Frankfurt airport and I was blown away how big of a deal it was to them. My uncle had the car inspected, shopped around for gas, and printed off travel and weather reports. All for a trip my dad would have said ‘hey let’s do this this weekend, in the car kids!'”

 

“When I moved to the UK, my flatmates asked how in movies people would stick their hands in the sink drain and it be ripped apart. I told them about garbage disposals and they were very weirded out.”

#5... yes in Europe you pay to poop but at least there are public toilets to be found, unlike in the states where you have to find a Starbucks or McDonads.

I'm an American and I've never pooped in a Starbucks or a McDonalds. I've never been in a Starbucks and I can't even remember the last time I was at a McDonald's, but pretty sure you can poop for free at either- about an hour after eating at Taco Bell.

Not in every europen country you need to pay to use the toilets, in Portugal, Spain, France or Italy the use is usually free.
