Only in America

 I stole this from my friend Becky's blog (Becky's Ramblings).  I hope she doesn't mind.  I laughed at these little things, but they are so true.  And people talk about hillbillies being backward - maybe we need to take a harder look at our entire country before we start pointing fingers at anyone!!!

Only in America...can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in America..are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.

Only in America...do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in America...do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke.

Only in America...do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in America...do we have cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in America...do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we will not miss a call from someone we did not want to talk with in the first place.

Only in America...do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in America...do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures.

Only in America...do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

Nobody from our family is ever meant to begin to comprehend why you'd have a garage and not put your vehicles in it.

By the way... I have some good pictures of me and Cameron stuffing our faces with brats with a diet root beer in hand. heh heh.
