There is one country in the world that seems to defy all expectations and it is the United States of America. This land seems to be home to some "weird" norms, as pointed out by British people who seem to do things very differently.
Read on to see some of the most surprising things, but I must warn you, it just gets stranger the more you scroll...
Let's be honest... We're pretty weird people.America is home to a number of unique quirks that make it the place that it is today.
But it seems as though the things that we're used to are completely incomprehensible to the rest of the world...But mainly to British people.
So here are some of the strangest differences between us...Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen.

via: Getty ImagesBrits find it pretty strange that all traffic has to stop when a school bus is in operation.
Toilet Bowls.Actually, why is the water so high anyway? Brits aren't used to that much water down there!
via: Getty ImagesWriting dates as MM/DD/YYYY, when most other places, including the UK, do theirs as DD/MM/YYYY.
via: Getty ImagesIt's pretty strange that kids are able to vote before reaching the legal drinking age... Even I can't make sense of this.
via: GettyApparently the Brits prefer their breadsticks to look like a pencil, while we prefer the "baguette" style ones.
via: Getty ImagesBritish people find it weird that we call a main course an "entrée." Apparently, the term refers to an appetizer/side dish across the pond.
via: Getty ImagesThis is a big one: pledging allegiance to the flag in class. Over half of the British population can't even recall the lyrics of their national anthem.
via: TumblrNow this one is pretty damn weird...
via: Getty ImagesThis is what one Brit recalled on Reddit: "Cash bail. The concept of 'paying bail' has always seemed ludicrous to me. Here in the UK, everyone is bailed automatically unless they are seen as a significant flight risk or a severe danger to others (murderers, etc.). Cash bail is literally making extortion part of the justice system. Not only this, but it gives an unfair edge to the very wealthy who can afford to be bailed out for even the most heinous of crimes."

via: Getty ImagesYeah, healthcare is not the strongest part of the American system.
via: Getty ImagesIt's an actual crime to microwave your water for a cup of tea over there.
via: Getty ImagesBread is not supposed to be just a savory snack, guys!
The Final Price.
via: Getty ImagesHere's another experience: "Not putting the final price on the tag. I'm not sure whether it's still like this, but a few years ago one never knew whether the $1.00 item in McDonald's or Burger King is actually $1.00 or maybe $1.08."
Sports in high schools.
via: Getty ImagesBesides soccer (which they refer to as football), no one really stays dedicated to sports, and it sure as hell can't get them a university scholarship like it can here.
via: Getty Images"Naming side effects on medication advertisements... hilarious to us Brits," said a user on Reddit. They like to keep it a secret, it seems.
via: Getty ImagesIt's not strange for strangers to strike up a conversation with each other in public, but according to British people, you'd be considered "weird" if you did that over there. Yikes.
via: Getty Images"Having a fully-blown police patrol at the school." Yeah, you don't have to guess why for this one.
Graduating in high school.
via: Getty ImagesThey only graduate after earning a university degree or higher-level education. Graduating high school is a pretty big thing over here.
via: Getty ImagesBrits can tell you what colors are on their flag, but ask them to draw the British one and they might have some trouble.
via: Getty ImagesIn the United Kingdom, lemonade is a fizzy, clear drink and is typically replaced with Sprite or 7Up, as opposed to actual homemade lemonade.
via: Getty Images"Being legally allowed to drink only when you reach 21." As if anyone waits that long anyway. The legal drinking age is eighteen in the UK.
via: Getty ImagesApparently Brits get freaked out at American portion sizes. We just like to eat well...
Biscuits vs Cookies.
via: Getty ImagesPeople in the UK regard the photo above as cookies, and everything else as "biscuits."
via: Getty ImagesHere's an American person's anecdote: "I forget who it was - a British comedian I went to see - who said that Americans think nothing of driving an hour to go to dinner. But in the UK, if you're a 20-minute drive from your parents', you might see them at Christmas."
"Thank you for your service."
via: Getty ImagesAnother Brit on Reddit revealed this: "The military is treated like some sort of God-level being. It first struck me at Seaworld when they would make all service personnel stand up. In the U.K. the military guys (a) wouldn’t do it and (b) would be embarrassed. In most cases, they would be actively told not to do it so they don’t get identified - the fear the IRA stoked still runs deep in the processes in the military of the U.K." Yikes.
via: Getty ImagesBrits have switches by the side of almost every single plug socket so they can switch them off when they're not using them, whereas Americans don't. They also get freaked out at the fact that we have sockets in our bathrooms.
via: GettyWe hardly ever do this, but Brits have the choice of 10-20 different types of advent calendars by the time the festive season rolls around. It's like a religious staple at Christmas time.
via: Getty ImagesIt's also the same kind of vibe around Easter time when everyone's eating massive chocolate eggs.
via: Getty ImagesThis American phenomenon is also another tea-related crime across the pond as Brits like to consider tea a warm, milky drink and nothing less. Yes, even during the summer.
Who knew we lived our lives so differently?
via: Getty ImagesAnother thing that freaks people in the UK out is the fact that literally anyone can run for President... even reality TV stars. Keep scrolling to see how Kim Kardashian planned to get to the throne.
