I learned something new today!
This site is fun...interesting to see some of the things we don`t think about because they`re culturally ingrained in us, but need to be learned by those who aren`t from here.
I had no idea that eye contact was a sign of disrespect in other places. I have traveled out of the country and consider myself a fairly well educated person, and not an ethnocentric boob, but I had no idea...:-?
"It is extremely impolite to blow smoke in someone`s face." You mean there are places where it is not impolite to blow smoke in someone`s face?
" If you are approached by a recruiter for a cult or religious group, do not make eye contact, do not engage in conversation, and keep walking. They will often ask you a rhetorical question to open the conversation, such as "Do you believe in god?". Either ignore them, or respond with something that will fluster them enough to let you get past, such as "only on Tuesdays and Thursdays"" lol...that`s awesome...
I thought it was cool that they explained the stereotypes and how most American`s aren`t ass****s.
I think this site is a good review for most of us in the U.S.... reminders of common curtesies... thou there shoulda been a section on hygiene.
