I cannot tell if Lucy Hebb is a troll or just a flag waving ignorant red neck that is blissfully ignorant about anything across her county line. So here goes: 1. Convenience stores.
Yup we have those. 3. Ice
I come from Sweden, live in Belgium and have probably been to more European countries than US states that you can name, and I have no idea what you are on about as water without ice is the exception not the rule and if you don’t get it. Ask for it! 4. Iced coffee
I still have no idea what you are on about as I can get Iced coffee in cafés as well at those non-existent convenience stores you mentioned. 6. Driving a Car.
What the fuck! People don’t have and drive card in Europe? What kind of drugs are you on? 7. Froyo
Ummm… we have frozen yoghurt here too. 9. Outlet shopping.
Seriously! How long did you live here? Alternatively, in what cave did you live. Plenty of outlets around. 11. Using 3G overseas is crazy expensive, and wifi can be scarce.
I’m sorry that you have a american crappy cellphone where you can not use any sim card you like. If you had a European one you could get a sim card for the country where you are staying and slot that one in. WiFi should not be an issue either, for example McDonalds offer free WiFi everywhere that I have been as do most bars and cafès. 13. Peanut Butter
Yeah Right. We do not have that here. I guess I must have flown in the PBJ sandwich I am eating now. *sigh* 17. No Smoking Zones.
Smoking in restaurants are banned or restricted to assigned areas in: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia,Finland, France, Germany*, Greece*, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxenmbourg, Macedonia, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom. Sersiously, where the hell did you “live” in Europe? 18. Sushi
I have at least 5 sushi restaurants within 7 minutes walking distance from my home, and no I do not live in an asian neighbourhood. Sushi is as a matter of fact very popular in many European countries. 21. State-to-State cell phone coverage.
If you buy a European cell phone, it WILL work from country to country. 22. Swim Trunks
Really, where did you live? Sure there are some that wear Speedo’s, but they are a very small minority. 25. Ketchup
No, the majority of Europeans do not prefer mayo on their french fries. That choice of condiment is basically limited to Benelux and there you are always given the choice between the two. 26. Household appliances
No we definitely don’t have those >.<
And you are not ignorant at all /sarcasm 27. Seperate checks
Yes waiters expect us to divide it up ourselves, because here the vast majority of us are capable of basic arithmetics. 31. Food Delivery.
http://www.royaldelivery.be/ is one good example of our delivery services. 33. Store hours
These vary greatly from country to country but as a general rule stores in the south are open until 21:00 or later.
