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 cheeseburgers, 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.

I have to comment on number 10. I remember driving up to an ATM one night and then laughed my arse off for over an hour when I realized the thing had braille on it.

I just kept thinking to myself over and over about how a "blind" person would "drive" up and "read" it....

Sorry...it just struck me as humorous at the time.

jO3, have you ever seen those humorous pictures with someone suspended by several large ballons? Well, I'm guessing they tie a bunch of ballons to a greenskeeper and using strings position him over the desired location. Then he is lowered into place just above the ground so he can hammer home one of those annoying signs.
