16 Things Americans Don’t Realize Are Actually Weird

Ah, America. From its beautiful landmarks to its gorgeous weather, to its “never a dull moment” politics, people honestly can’t get enough of it. Admit it, going for a 2-week vacay to Florida or California is just perfection!

But whether you’re visiting from Europe or Canada, there are a few things that Americans do that non-Americans can’t understand. Naturally, different parts of the world do things a little differently; it’s totally normal.

Americans might not even realize that some of this stuff is out of the ordinary, but here are 16 things that Americans do that might be a bit strange to those who aren’t from there. Not going to lie, these are pretty entertaining!

1. Blasting the Air Conditioning to the maximum. I get when it’s hot it’s totally necessary, but do we really need to go from sweating like crazy to needing a winter jacket in doors?

2. Americans sure do love their commercials, every five minutes. Is it really necessary to have so many commercial breaks for an episode that’s technically 40-minutes?

3. The huge gap in the bathroom doors is too much to handle. Rather than putting “occupied” they made the gap awkwardly massive.

4. Sensitive teeth probably don’t exist with Americans. Restaurants love filling up their water with ice, ice cubes to the brim.
