Only in America!

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


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


3. Only in America......do drugstores make
the sick walk all the way to the back of the store
to get their prescriptions while healthy people can
buy cigarettes at the front.


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


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


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


7. 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.


8. Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages
of ten and buns in packages of eight.


9. Only in America......do we use the word 'politics' to
describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning
many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.


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

Try getting a drive in "meal" in KANDAHAR, Afghanistan or using an ATM in Somalia.

Hey I was a bank teller for a year and did not have the chain pens for a while and then got the chain pens, trust me you would get bothered having to find a new pen for the damn customers every five minutes.

I'm thinking about chaining the pens at my desk at work down because they get stolen so dang much.

i hated that. when i used to smoke, people would always ask if i had an "extra" cigarette. when i quit, i saved so much money. i didnt have to buy cigarettes for myself or all the other people.
