  • Top things Americans do that confuse everyone else! These are the confusing and weird customs of americans and things americans do that confuse the rest of the world!


    #5. “Hollywood Smile”-- Another place that foreigners think Americans are wasting water is at the Dentist’s office. While dental hygiene in other countries may not be as bad as it is stereotyped to be, like in England, they aren’t quite as obsessed with attaining or maintaining the perfect smile in the way that Americans have. Where Americans have been known to spend thousands of dollars on braces and whitening procedures in order to get a pearly white Hollywood grill many foreigners are content with crooked and discolored teeth as long as they aren’t falling out or making them look like Nosferatu. Most foreigners from first world nations care about their teeth, they just haven’t become indoctrinated with the intense beauty standards American society has made a part of its culture in regards to dental perfection. In many countries, having a brighter than normal smile that is unnaturally straight is viewed as superficial to the point of being unattractive or off-putting.

    #4. “Dining Out”-- Tipping your server and taking home leftover food. Two habits that are so ingrained in the American dining experience that they can be hard to kick, but rest assured if you try doing these outside of the US you are sure to draw confused looks and reveal your Stars and Stripes. In most Asian and European countries a service charge is either already included in your bill or it is not customary to leave a tip. In many places if you do try to tip you can offend your waiter, this is because a tip can be seen as a person having pity on their server or offering some sort of charity. In some countries giving good service is expected whereas in the United States the food industry has become a sort of meritocracy. Foreigners see this as absurd, why should a server be rewarded for something they should be doing in the first place? However, In places where tipping is insulting waitstaff aren’t ridiculously underpaid like they are in the U.S. The other habit that can draw the scoffs of onlookers at a restaurant outside the United States is asking for a ‘doggy bag’ or ‘to-go box’. In many countries, especially European ones the idea of saving a hot meal at a restaurant in order to reheat it and eat it at home is a disgusting prospect. Many dining cultures believe that the food is meant to be eaten exactly how it is prepared by the chef or cook at that moment, not to be consumed after the various sauces and meat juices congeal or have their perfect grilling or baking sullied by your microwave. A lot of the reason that Americans have developed this custom of bringing scraps home with them is due to portion sizes being generally much larger in the States than elsewhere. This may be a result of capitalist consumers becoming obsessed with getting their money’s worth causing restaurants to have slowly battled to stuff people’s gullets.

    10. The price here includes a GST (goods and services tax) which is currently 10% the whole country over. Fresh food is GST free.
    9. We too drive great distances and many actually fly from one state to another. Yes we are spread out too except there's really nothing in our interior.
    8. Vacation days I get 44 fully paid vacation days a year. I can even increase them by not taking any vacation days for a few years and then I take a whole season off of 13-14 weeks fully paid either weekly or in advance. It's my choice. Even when I'm on vacation my vacation allowance is still accumulating. I also get two weeks long service leave every year. I currently have 22 weeks of long service leave and if I only take those at half pay that 22 weeks becomes 44 weeks.
    7. We eat far too much sugar too. It's in nearly everything you eat. Low fat food means high sugar content otherwise it would taste bland. Our butts and thighs are almost as big as Americans.
    6. Our lot too buy water when the water out of the tap is perfectly safe to drink. Water companies con people into thinking that their water is pure. It is. Pure filtered tap water.
    5. Our lot too go in for the whiter than white teeth. A good way to waste money. It's like buying a car for 30k and then spending another 100k on the car. That car is not now worth 130k.
    4. We don't tip because employers have to pay their employees a decent living wage or salary. It law and they can't get out of it and if they do they end up in prison. We don't have doggy bags either. If the portion sizes were reduced the US wouldn't need to have "food to go".
    3. Ice comes in drinks here and with Iced coffee it's good to stipulate NO ICE. With ice it's tastes foul.
    2. Our legal drinking age is 18 but I was introduced to alcohol at around 10 when I would get about 1cm of red wine in the bottom of a glass with lemonade filling the glass to full.
    1. When I went to school there was no such thing as high school graduations or prom night. There maybe now though as Australia is a colonial US state although Starbucks Coffee is very rare to see here now. It was expensive muck and better and cheaper coffee could be bought at Maccas.

    I went to America once and we had a very tough time finding regular bread. We had to go to Whole Foods to find it. All the bread we found at Walmart or anywhere else contained a ton of sugar, it was incredibly gross!
    Also, we do have coffee to go, Starbucks and other company's situated here sell coffee just like they do in America. We just don't have drive thru everywhere, because we don't drive as much.

    Dogi bags is a thing in Denmark. But! You need to go to a pizza restaurant that is a private business. Don't go to dominoes or other places like that. If you want to have your leftovers. If the restaurant is fancy or not a small private restaurant. You can't take the left overs with you.
    And we do put ice in our drinks. In Scandinavian. We also have refill on drinks in some places. And you can get a coffee on the go. We do have Starbucks xD every gas station have coffee to go. A specialty the once on the most popular roads.

    Here in germany, i've never heard or seen outlets with switches installed in walls.
    Tipping the waiter is normal here too, but just small amounts (mostly under 5€).
    Doggy bags are okay here, too. (But maybe not as common).
    Ice in drinks can happen, but are uncommon (exept for mcdonalds).
    Coffe to go is a normal thing here.
    No complains about the drinking age part.
    We normaly have a Party if we end shool, but not gigantic ones like Americans i guess.

  • Luca Nogara
    Luca Nogara 16 hours ago

    Seeing all of this made me proud not to be American...
    1° In Europe, there are also separate taxes between the states (which you could easily compare to the american ones because they're quite small) and we don't make a fuss about it. And there are also different taxes for different products (food, alcohol, cigarettes, cars,...).
    2° Even if we use public transports way much than in the US, I don't know that many people that go very far with them. They're more for small trips. Come and take a look in Europe in the summer and y'all see that we use the car way more that you descibed.
    3° No vacation benefit is slavery basically.
    4° Even if we drink more tap water, we also have bottle water at home. Have you ever seen tap sparkling water? ...
    5° Yes, Europeans also go to the dentists...
    6° I take a doggybag nearly everytime I go to the restaurant because there is still food on my plate and that doesn't shock anybody.
    7° This one is the funnier for me... everywhere you'll find ice in a drink, in every soda, water, cocktails,...
    8° Free refills also exists in the fast-food here in Europe.

      I disagree in that using one language is unifing, and that is truely smart for advancement of civilization. (differing language is a nice cultural defense though)
      Knowing other languages is only needed to reach beyond borders, our former isolationist nature negated it, frowned on it in favor of unity. That has been changing but for the average US citizen learning multiple languages, though always somewhat impressive, is often a redundant task, especially if new citizens actully attempt to conform to their new culture vs wing it or in attempt to change the host's ways.
      Lack of use has lead to the loss of my speaking French, German, some Flemish and Algonquin /Ojibwe I once knew. There is just not much use for it here outside of nostalgia or speaking with elders that resist change.
      Brilliantly smart would be a global attempt at use of say German, or English, as both are wide spread, fairly easy to grab hold of the basics to read and write, and have more abundant use in presently developing technologies. (there are other options, but I think the use of more traditional lettering is key)

    I feel like people should just get a water filter at home xD there's so many people I know that I have quite a few packs of big bottles at home.. like why? Get a filter at home and an on-the-go steel or plastic bottle that you can refill and re-use all the time and put the filtered water in it and go out with it. Saves money, time and space in your home + less pollution or shall I say less work for the people that gather everything and then recycle it. I guess you could buy a small bottle of water if you finish the one you brought from home or something.

    Wow. Last of these I will bother with. Do you even travel, Bro?
    This is so 'last-century.' In the UK, we have been tipping servers for at least 40 years - you might not want to do it in a McDonalds-level food-conveyer-belt or a really expensive restaurant, but anywhere inbetween is OK. The difference is that in the UK (and most other places in Europe), the servers don't expect it or get upset with you when you don't. And no, being a server is not well paid in most places over here either.
    As for the rest - travel more. You would not be as confused as you seem to make out, I know I was not the last time I travelled to America..!

    The biggest problem with this video seems to be that Europe is not a country but rather and entire continent devised of smaller countries with different cultures. You can't generalise "Europe" the same way you can generalise "America" since we don't even speak the same languages. I'm Dutch and we do drink tap water cuz our tap water tastes about as good as bottled water, but when I went on vacation in other countries in Europe, I didn't like the tapwater as much and ended up drinking a lot of bottled water. Coffee-to-go is really a big city thing. Where I live you can't go into a restaurant or a café asking for a coffee-to-go but you can do that in bigger cities if I'm correct since caffeine addicted college/uni students and workers exist. Legal drinking age here is 18 but cross the border 30 minutes away into Germany and the legal age's 16. Also, went on a schooltrip to Rome and although the legal age there seems to be 18 as well if I'm correct, I got offered the alcohol menu and some woman in a store tried to sell us a bottle of limoncello and I was like 15 and 5"2 with a baby face. Also, the legal drinking age here used to be 16, and despite it being changed to 18, a lot of parents let their kids drink anyway, and if they don't they'll just ask their 18 yo friends to buy it for them lmao.

    We (UK) drink our tap water (a.k.a slang - Council pop), bottled water is for on the go. We have ice in drinks, usually the server asks if it is required. Object to American fast food outlets though who serve huge soft drinks but it is mostly ice = rip off. And stop trying to inflict us with the unnecessary expense of the trashy 'prom' event! Foisting Halloween on us was bad enough when we were quite happy with 'remember, remember the 5th November'! :) Eating sweet and savoury things together - that's just plain autism - we don't have it and we don't need to be diagnosed with it.

    My issue with these videos and comments are that Europe is always treated like it's a country. There are many countries in Europe and we have very different cultures. It's just so baffling that these videos compare one country vs all of Europe which is over 40-50 countries depending on if you include those in the borders. It just annoys me that it's like Americans think Europe as a whole. Spain, Germany, France, Ukraine, Sweden and Greece all have different cultures but we're all being put together because of laziness.

    They must have only surveyed the upper class working force. I honestly only know maybe 2 or 3 employers (that are not salaried) that offer paid vacation days, in all of the country.

    Wow. For a video that only came out a month ago, this seems well out of date! No ice in drinks anywhere outside the US? Um ... ok!! And no disposable coffee cups and drive through coffee places? I think you need to go back and re-check your facts!!

      We know what the sales taxes are in our states. It isn't much more, like 7% or so, so a $10.00 item would only be $10.70. Sales taxes go up and down according to each state's tax needs which change. I don't see any problem with it.
      If other countries have electronic sales prices on their shelves that are easy to change, fine. In America, we use paper ones that don't wear out but would take hours to change..

      So what, even if they change, how should the customer know how much he is going to pay? Is he gonna have to carry a calculator with him? Claiming that a sales tax goes up and down is a bullshit excuse. They don't switch from day to day.
      It's simple.
      You see something cheap, you want it
      Ends up costing you like 20% more because autism
      *turns out it wasn't cheaper than the store 5 miles away in another state who had it priced higher*

      Sales tax in U.S. states is added at the register because sales taxes go up and down. Saves stores lots of trouble. We know the price will be a little more.

    This narrator blows. But this is VERY interesting information. However, bottled water is WAY better than tap water. THAT is the truth.

    BEER-PONG - Nobody, and I mean nobody in any other country plays a fucking idiotic game at drinking parties, to NOT Drink. Americans are the only fools in the world that play a game at events that include alcohol, where the objective is to drink less, or not to drink at all. Nonsense

    #10 didn't make any sense at all. The end price of the items are going to be different regardless so just put the tax in the shelf price in the first place. More work for the store owner? well welcome to operating a customer centric business.
