To the United States for many years, found that there are a lot of Americans in their daily lives and habits of the Chinese people, these habits can not say anything good or bad, to say nothing of popular unpopular, anyway, some people like to do so, the following inventory for everyone Americans ten wonderful habit of life.
1. Do not take off your shoes to go to bed
Many American TV fans have this question: “The Americans do not take off the shoes to go home so even wearing shoes stepped sofa bed??” There are three reasons: First: the concept of different European and American people and Chinese people view different substances, USA people think that matter is to serve, to enjoy the material world enjoy, and that the source material is relatively abundant, dirty, bad, do not the respect of the update, so step on a sofa and bed although it does not matter. Chinese people because of something hard to come by, to obey environmental constraints, the door to the floor for fear of stepping off your shoes dirty, ruined. Second: The United States is relatively clean, free to place on the grass, so much dirt and mud, walked outside one day, not much dirty shoes; everywhere Caicai okay. Third, the US home mostly carpeted shoes to wear into the home, Cengceng clean. So, Americans actually paid for the carpet cleaning!
2. ice water throughout the year, giving birth is also still
Americans throughout the year ice water; water dispenser on their only two files: hot (only used to soak instant coffee and tea bags) and ice water (to drink directly). What warm is it? Americans do not understand. Xiaobian to the United States later, often you can see, even in temperatures below zero in the winter, Starbucks iced coffee is also a lot of people point. Most Americans do not understand is, why you Chinese elements cup of hot water into the hotel? Drink only a small part of the coffee and tea should be hot ah!
People more robust US imperialism has no concept of “under confinement unfit for drinking ice water”; American girls in the menstrual period still iced drink; even giving birth to drink a big gulp of ice water to quench their thirst at once!
Of course, on this issue there are two interpretations: one, the people of the US imperialists to red meat-based, natural physique heat, can withstand cold matter; so ice without health problems for them; two, Principles of Economics: We want ah, the American restaurant, you sit over there, the first thing the waiter child is the “popping” sound in front of you put a large glass of water, which also added the Ice. Why? America is full of commercial society, you have to analyze it from this side of reason. Think about it before you eat and drink a glass of ice water does it feel? Ice cold, cool. You think again, after a wounded or injured athletes after is how to deal with? Ice. After that the ice is what it feels like it? Did not feel, is to hurt, really hurt, ah, what inflation did not feel. So come cup ice water at dinner, a little later you eat, how you eat as much any more support you eat, you will not feel. Even if this thing is done in general, you did not feel. A long time, you will become the odd fat. Most people eat Qi Bafen knew full, and came to a halt not eat. But after you drink a glass of iced water, no feeling. So the boss make money.
3. while eating burgers while drinking Diet Coke
Most American food means hamburgers with Coke. Coke is an American invention, this stuff started green, is used to cure a headache medicine; added sugar later found after a good drink, it was brought when the beverage sold, then later swept the United States and around the world a. Burger Fries, also an American invention; McDonald’s open to the world, but drove into the heart of every American. For Americans, hamburger with cola just want to repay the debt, the milk with the same right and proper fritters.
But Americans are not stupid, they gradually discovered this delicious mix although convenient, but not nutrition, calories still overflowing! Street fat, more and more Americans are wise to sit still, they invented a Diet Coke (Diet Coke), 99% fewer calories than the average cola. So they happily with A Q-like, continue to eat hamburgers with Coke; wait own fewer calories later “slowly lean down” that day. But frankly, calorie burger fries out there, drinking a Diet Coke light what use is it? And anyway, ate a hamburger fries, Diet Coke still doing it?
The summer wear Australian Ugg boots?
Then look at the “Big Bang,” the first episode of the first season, when it is time to wonder: Why Penny beauties wearing short shorts and T, but stepping on the foot of a pair of UGG? She does not hot? Then just think Penny is a wonderful, came only after the United States found that people’s summer wear UGG US imperialism is simply a traditional practices it! UGG snow boots is not it?
Could not ask people to give two answers: a. “UGG sheepskin really one of the finest of wool can absorb moisture by the boots, like human skin, like automatically adjust and optimize the environment inside the dress boots inside. Thus, both in the cold winter or hot summer, feet can stay dry and comfortable. “— this sentence is a look at advertising, but whatever the outcome is a scientific explanation of it! II. US summer indoor air conditioning cold! Do not wear snow boots still feel cold panic yet …… uh. All right. Can understand the comrades can wear on it.
5. Winter still wear short sleeves
Responding to the same US drama, then watch “Sex and the City” when Carrie was very surprised to be able to ride outside Dress mink coat in the end …… you are cold or not cold? To the United States after more discovery, summer is the most cost-effective to buy, because you can wear full seasons ah!
Americans are physically fit, casual dress in the winter, many young people are still short-sleeved T-shirt, wrapped in a coat on when cooling, plus a pair of jeans can be the winter. Of course, this is mainly due to indoor heating; but they are also quite a few outdoor wear ah! In the winter the streets of New York, we often see a lot of professional women are wearing light leg outside professional skirt wearing a thick coat, wearing high heels instep exposed, upper body and lower body of a 20-degree difference in temperature of the bar!
In addition to the heat they eat red meat physique warm, small series had thought, they ice water every day, summer and short winter UGG T, temperature sensing is not a problem? But not, as long as the weather warmed a little, once again filled with floating short-sleeved T-shirt.
But later, Xiao Bian also found on every American family has a blanket on the sofa, dressed in winter when they will blanket on the couch watching TV, like dumplings wrapped in silk, and the American people still chilly.
6. You can drink tap water, not hot drink unsolicited
In the United States, most states tap water is drinkable. At first you may feel very uncomfortable, because the kind of special taste of tap water. But it really is drinkable. Institutions had been tested and found that the water level of health than the supermarkets sell some mineral water to be high. Drink tap water instead of bottled water and help protect the environment.
But remember, do not drink the water out of the tap mouth Oh, because both sides of the water is not the same, the water quality is far lower than for hot water out of the cold water tap. Why not just put hot mouth water quality also improved a little bit?
7. tip to the waiter, is that even if you buy a service
In the US, tipping is a very common phenomenon, from the restaurant, take a taxi, let the hotel staff help you with your luggage, etc., all need to give a certain amount of a tip as to recognize and compensate the other party of labor. In most cases is about 15% of the amount you consume. Of course, you can LEVEL this restaurant / hotel, the quality of services will be adjusted. But not to tip is generally considered rude, and make you become unwelcome guests.
Of course, eating a taxi to tip this we all understand, but in many cases, is the service you buy, why in addition to the service expenses? For example, a haircut, the money you pay is the service fee ah, why do Also give a tip? Although small series do not understand, but still nice to!
8. outside the pants to wear underwear lower than
If you ask, “American aesthetic in the most unacceptable thing you what is” small series certainly one second without hesitation answered — Baggy Pants! This is lower than the underwear outside the pants worn many, many really understand incompetent ah!
Baggy pants in the African-American community is a popular pants first, almost all of the hip-hop star passes through the streets like pants, Justin Bieber is like a plus to this pants. But the origin of the pants there are two versions, but there is not a good bird.
Origins A: At the beginning of the 1980s, African-American blacks in the store in order to have invented the pants more space to hold things when stealing. Origins II: US jail inmates will often have been treated chrysanthemum burst, like the phrase “If you can not avoid being raped close your eyes and enjoy it,” then, as some people are much more explosive, invented this does not need to take off the pants would be easy to burst Ju ….. . After the rise of hip-hop fashion, black rappers wear Baggy pants and started a trend, and many people do not know the origin of the white pants, and also wearing a suit, and now has become a part of American street culture.
9. morning bath
Americans and Chinese people do not like, we take a bath at night, they bathe in the morning. If the United States is the girls dressed up at night to wash your face and then generally go to bed. Xiao Bian think how not comfortable, but the Americans explained that as long as there is air conditioning in the place of work can take a bath in the morning, if it is outdoors, so the evening is going to wash.
It is said that they chose to take a shower in the morning because they appreciate the weight, you must first wash the smell out every day.
For this reason will not go into small series, but every time I see a perfect morning to go to work each American girls have hair fluffy hair; compare yourself to sleep collapsed hair, small series will seriously think about taking a bath in the morning is reasonable. But I often think about going to get up half an hour earlier to take a bath blowing hair, this thing will stay in the level of thinking. Then think of the night to go to bed dirty, this thing will not stop even thinking level up. Then someone mentioned opinion: You can wash in the morning all night ah! Why should I give myself a good double trouble! So, a thinking human beings, God laughs.
10. Cats culture - love pets than lovers
Americans love a pet seems to be “world famous, world famous,” the. Some people say that Chinese people more than dogs in the United States than in dogs, although some exaggeration, but not unreasonable. TV episodes are how to raise animals every day, guiding people how to raise these animals; Americans like almost every dog cat, cats and dogs they let into the bedroom and went to bed together, all meals, serve good meat.
Sometimes dogs cost is high, the daily cost of food and drink Beauty and the doctor is very impressive, but the Americans are willing to spend the money. Many cities will host the annual “dog show”, the dog can be a fashion show catwalk. Wal-Mart supermarket toy cats and dogs, cats and dogs clothing, cat and dog food, supplies are important commodities.
