Only in America

Some things you will only see in America.
Here are some examples:

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

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

Only in America do we award someone $3,000,000 for spilling hot coffee in their own lap.

Only in America do we have labels on baby strollers to remind people to remove the baby before folding up the stroller.

Only in America do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions.

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

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

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

Only in America do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to 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 "blood-sucking creatures".

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