30 Non-Americans On The American Norms They Find Weird

As an American that lived overseas for most of his life the one thing I’ve heard over and over again is newspaper dispenser machines. The kind where you put a couple of quarters in, open the drawer and take out one newspaper.
Everyone always says “Where I come from, they’d take all the newspapers!” What you are going to do with more than one copy of the day’s paper is beyond me.

Wearing shoes in the house… What the fuck are you doing? You step in all nasty shit, for example, if you stepped on a fruit then walked all over your living room then thats how you get ants.

I find it really weird how college football players are kind of celebrities. They’re scrutinized and have fans and do TV interviews, and it just boggles my mind so much. They’re just students that do an extra-curricular activity! I don’t understand.

About 80% of Americans i met didn’t trust their government (don’t blame them though)
TV is weird in America, constant advertisement & there is blatant propaganda from both Fox & CNN. No neutral political new network it seemed.
Food wastage is unreal in America!
But Americans are nice people, nothing but love for them!
