What are some American customs for foreigners that some foreigners themselves don't understand?

and is it that big of a deal or can it be a very big problem at times?

  • I've always heard that Americans will create much more personal space than any other nationality of people.

  • Some American people talking slower and louder, because they think it will make foreigners understand...?

    • Other countries do that to Americans when we are the foreigners

  • Eating out instead of cooking

  • American football... soccer is way more skillful and rugby is way more manly and badass ( padding is for sissies).

  • Flag waving, big houses, toilets being in the same room as the bath, "Football" being a game where you hold the ball and headbutt things and how they shout "GET IN THE HOLE" one the first shot of a golf course >.>

  • I've lived in China for two years and most don't understand...

    Guns (yes we can have guns in some states, doesn't mean we will shoot you if we are pissed)

    The American Dream (you will be disappointed)

    Tips (pay for the food...and extra)

  • Right now with genuine horror I realize there's actually no such thing for me.

  • Recently I visited the states after being in Japan for two years, and I have to say that the entire concept of tipping is completely f***ing retarded. Restaurants and service industries need to raise what they pay their employees.
