We host foreign exchange students every year and not one of them has ever mentioned any of these being issues, lol.

If it's any consolation, I'm American and find America weird. :)

I don't think our bread products taste sweet, lol! And I'm not big on sweet food at all so I wouldn't like it if it did. That makes me want to try bread from another country.

#3!! I was so confused when I visited the UK the first time. I thought I was underpaying and the shop keeper thought I was mental when I questioned it

I lived in Germany for three years and have been to several different countries. I agree with all of these, especially the potion size, tipping, and the free refills. In Germany, it was actually offensive to leave a tip larger than rounding to the next euro. There are no extra large drinks there. In fact, a large there is our size medium. Refills were 2-3 euro.

#12 gets me too. I had a college professor go off on a class one time because he didn't care it was the tournament!
