When we live in a country for a long time, we get used to it and everything looks simple and familiar.
But outsiders find uniqueness in everything that we didn’t notice. “What’s going on here?” Life surprises newcomers in the US, Whether it’s a matter of buying food or magazine.
So, we share what are those things that surprise those who arrive in the US?
1 Public toilets with large gaps
People get surprised when they see a public toilet in the US, they provide less privacy in comparison to restrooms in other countries.
The bottom gap in the door is so big (around 15-20% of the door), the side gaps are too big as well.They believe that large gaps are much safer, and they prevent people from misusing them. The big gap also helps in cleaning.
2 super-sized food portions
People love food size here. Restaurants and fast food chains in the US are known for serving 3-lb burgers, 20-inch pizzas that really attracts outsiders.
If you love bigger size food, you must visit Mallie’s Sports Bar & Grill where they offer one of the world’s biggest burgers that weigh around 350 lb.
3 Anything you can think of can be deep-fried
History says the first recipes of deep-fried fish were found in Spanish and Portuguese cookbooks from the 13th century. Who has invented this method of cooking, he would not have thought that we would take it so far.
Every country has its own famous fried dish, but hardly such fries you can find that the US offers. You can try any fried product of US like, fruit, veggies, cookies and biscuits, pickles, butter, chocolate bars, and even bubble gum!
4 Price tags do not include taxes
When a new person first shopping in the United States, he can be puzzled, because the price we see is not real because it is without the taxes, then the taxes are added to the bill counter that increases the total value.
5 You can return any gift you don’t like
If you do not like the sweaters given by your relatives then it does not matter. You can return any gift in the US even if you didn’t buy it yourself. In the US, there comes National return day at the beginning of January, on which day you can return the gift you didn’t like on Christmas.
And unlike many countries, you can return the goods without the receipt. Many stores put the code on items so they can be tracked. But every store has a different return policy. So, you must be checked.
