If you live in America, you probably think the things you do are totes normal.
But if you hail from another country, you know the truth. America is pretty dang weird when it comes to some things.
Here are 19 of the weirdest things that Americans just accept as being perfectly normal (even though they are totally not).
This first one is a real doozy: Bathroom gaps!
If you go abroad, the bathroom doors allow for some privacy.
In America, there is no way to avoid making awkward eye contact with someone outside the bathroom stall.
Why is this a thing?!
And speaking of toilets, we apparently have way more water in them than other parts of the country.
And there isn’t really any reason for it.
One more thing about U.S. bathrooms – the flushes are super weak.
In many other countries, the toilets mean business.
In America, you might find yourself flushing multiple times to finally dispose of the evidence.
Squirrels! They’re everywhere in America!
In some countries of the world, squirrels are actually kept in zoos and put on display.
Here, we just try our darnedest to keep them away from our birdfeeders.
In many places in the States, it’s customary to smile at people and say hello — even if you don’t know them.
Apparently, this kind of freaks out some people who are visiting from elsewhere in the world.
And we don’t just smile and wave. No, we have to take it one step farther…
