Share With Me Things That Are Viewed As Normal In American Culture But Not In Europe

It's obvious that there are a lot of differences between the United States and Europe.

I went to Italy last September for a wedding, and I was immediately shocked that I had to pay to use a public bathroom.

So, I'm turning to the BuzzFeed Community to ask what some differences are between European and American culture, both obvious and non-obvious.

Maybe you noticed that Europe doesn't eat the same breakfast foods as we do, nor do they prioritize it as much.

Perhaps you realized that Americans have way more water in their toilets than European toilets.

Or maybe how Americans will make small talk with strangers but that's not really the thing to do in Europe.
