Americans often do things that can leave people from other countries feeling a bit puzzled. One thing is their love for big portions of food – meals in the U.S. can be super-sized! Also, Americans use Fahrenheit for temperature, which is different from Celsius used in most places. They drive on the right side of the road, which is opposite to countries where they drive on the left. Americans are friendly and may strike up conversations with strangers, which can be surprising for people from more reserved cultures. And when it comes to tipping in restaurants, the rules can be a bit complicated for visitors to understand. These are just a few examples of what might confuse folks from other countries when they visit the USA.
