10 Strange Things Americans Do That Confuse The Rest Of The World

Every country maintains a set of standards and has their own way of doing things. Even if you move into a different area within the same country, you may see different tradition. Some countries are known for doing things so differently that people really get confused.

For example, an American walking down the streets of China may get shocked to see giant worm looking things sold at a local supermarket. This may surprise an American as it is not found in the USA.

 

If you are living in the same country it may appear normal to you but for those who belong to a different nation that may seem crazy.

Here are some things that Americans do which people from the UK find strange.

Too Much Water

Toilet bowls in the United States have too much water in them which people from the UK find difficult to understand.

That’s really confusing to us as well.

High School Graduation

In the UK, they just sit for exams and return home once finished. There is no point making it a big deal as it’s in the USA.

Biscuits or Scones

Those not from the states are confused why scones are called biscuits and why they are served with white gravy and bacon.
