In France, waiters will usually leave you alone even if you don’t want them to – sometimes you will literally have to scream for help for them to notice you.
No matter the season, American restaurants seem set on serving only icy-cold water. My American friends told me that’s because it’s “more refreshing,” but who would want a brain freeze in December??
Why do you guys love the cold so much? And when you go from 90 degrees outside to 20 degrees inside a supermarket in the summer, isn’t it a lil’ bit too much?
A really refreshing and nice feeling when you come from a country where the consumer is pretty much always in the wrong. Wanna return something you bought in France? It’s probably not gonna happen, and they don’t care if the pants they sold you had a hole at the crotch; you should have looked closer.
I couldn’t even tell you what the legal age for drinking is in France and I don’t remember ever getting carded there at any point in my life.
A tradition completely foreign to us, except for what we learned from Hollywood movies. Many French teens are actually pretty jealous about that one.
And feeling cheated when you receive the check. (I know this doesn’t happen in every state, but still.)
The fact that that “how are you?” often only means “hello” and that the person asking you doesn’t really wanna hear about your current state of mind.
This potato chip can that comes with a device for always keeping the chips at the top.
And this popcorn bucket that comes with a lid you can use to shake butter all over it AND as a bowl.
