Only in America (may be old for some of you)

Only in America… Can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in America… Are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.

Only in America… Do people order double cheese burgers, a large fry, and a diet coke.

Only in America… Do banks leave both vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in America… Do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and leave useless things and junk in boxes in the garage.

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.

Only in America… Do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

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’.

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