Weird, weird America

Someone asked me last night what I’ve found weirdest about living in American again after half a decade in China. I’m a bit insulated among many international students, and furthermore Boston is probably one most China-y mannered cities in America, but here’s my list:

  1. Standing in line
  2. Standing in line with space between me and the person in front of me
  3. Standing in a a non-crooked line, unable to gander at what’s ahead
  4. Standing in line, waiting for people to get out of the elevator
  5. Standing in line, waiting for people to get out of the train
  6. Not wondering if the longest line is longest because it leads to the best place

Also, these barbarians like their water cold.
