You Know You Live In The US When...
- You have a TV commercial every 5 minutes, LITERALLY! They constantly interrupt every show you watch to the point where they are not worth watching. I personally decided to stop watching TV. Fortunately, there is Netflix.
- You never have to get wet to wash your car because here other people can do for you.
- You start taking #shoefies with the grass because you find it beautiful. Despite the Texas heat, the grass is always so green and healthy, and the edges are soooooo well cut! Personally, I didn't know it was possible to build a passion for grass before moving to the US.
- The bartenders/servers always fill your glass with a looooot of ice cubes!
- You realize that icing is on EVERY SINGLE CAKE, which makes you sad because you love cake, but don't really care for the sugar/butter mix. However, you now understand where the expression "icing on the cake" comes from.
- The aisles of cereal, coke and Mac & Cheese are endless. Okay, having choice is a good thing, but having too much choice is very confusing.
- You start having Mexican food at least once a week, because 1) Mexican restaurants are EVERYWHERE! 2) Mexican food is good.
- Your bill is on your table before you even have had a chance to put your fork back on the plate. And it makes you feel like you need to rush because they want to give your table to some other clients.
- There is a fast food restaurant at every corner! McDonald’s, Burger King, Whataburger, Smashburger, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, Pei Wei, KFC, Subway, Pizza Hut, Jack in the Box, Sonic, Chicken Express, Chick-Fil-A, ... Did I forget to mention one? Probably!
- You know you can pay everything with your MasterCard to the point you don't carry cash anymore. How much? $1.20? Okay. And then you swipe your card to finally have to use the chip because some stores want you to swipe and others to use the chip. Wouldn't it be easier for everybody if all stores would ask you to use one or the other?
- Every retailer around you reminds you that it's Fall and you need to get some pumpkins and other Fall decor to decorate your home. I knew Thanksgiving and Christmas were important holidays in the US, but I didn't know Fall was also a big deal. Below, some photos of our home in its Fall outfit... Do you like?
- You're asked to check your ethnicity in administrative forms.
