A survey asked people in other countries how they could tell if someone was American and not a European or Canadian. The answers will make you laugh out loud!

North Face jackets.
Saying “Ummm” (other countries just say “Uhhh”)
From a Canadian: Super friendly and call people “honey,” “sweetie” or “darling”
From a Brit: they tip the male bartenders. Others only tip the female bartenders.
Confidence in a group setting
Being surprised by the lack of open container laws in public places
Constantly complaining about Comcast or Verizon even if no one else knows what you’re talking about.
