    Does Japan have White Trash. #1 reason we can't drink in public. And you can actually drink on Trains. Just not on mass transit like subways or buses.

    I work at waffle house in America in the South. And and yelling at us is the only way your going to get food especially when it's a rush. lol I never thought of it as rude but I guess I'm a more fancy restaurant it might be.

    I've decided that a discreet, quick blowing of the nose as you turn your head to the side is much better than being stuck with someone snot sucking for an hour. Now that doesn't mean you've got a nose full of snot that you will continue to honk on for the ne3xt 10 minutes is very different. To me, that's disgusting anywhere. As far as excusing myself from the table, ...I imagine space is hard to come by in Japan. You guys are adorable together. Thanks for the videos!

    I came to take a look how sick and strange Japan is, but now I'm more thinking that the USA are strange and messed up.
    In eastern europe, I order by yelling "Hey boy, get over here!".
    Getting drunk with boss is also mandatory, as the best way to socialize.

    I am from east Europe, so, here at the US, I once snapped my fingers at a waiter to let him know I needed his help. Waiter and pretty much everyone within my vicinity gave me a nasty look like I was an asshole.

    I'm an American and honestly asking for the waiter isn't really that rude. I know many people that do it, bc honestly even if you make eye contact with your waiter he/she might be too busy and ignore you. Unfortunately happened many times to me lol. However, this is all after you wait a little bit for your waiter. I close my menu and make sure they know I'm done lol.

    As an Englishman, our waiters will come to you, but if they take a while, our you want a drink top up, or more napkins or something, I've been taught to make eye contact to get the waiters attention, only say, ;'excuse me' if the waiter is walking by your table and you've been waiting for ages

    It's not rude at all to say "excuse me" to a waiter/waitress in the US. Well I guess it depends on how you say it. If you politely say "excuse me" it's the same as anywhere else if you wanted to politely get someone's attention. But if you go "ummmmmmm EXCUUUUUUSE MEEEEE! I ORDERED BREADSTICKS LITERALLY AN HOUR AGOOOOOO!" When you've been sitting there for 5 minutes and are talking to someone who's NOT your server, you're being an asshole.
    What people in the US don't seem to understand for some magical reason is that if you are actually a polite human being (you know? The MANNERS your parents taught you when you were little?) wait staff, retail, any other kind of worker will have zero problems helping you. I've worked in both retail and restaurants and when a person is nice and polite we love them to death and would do anything they asked. Don't apologize that you don't like cilantro! Half of use don't like it either and you can bet we won't let them put it on your salad you beautiful person!

    I see people drinking in public constantly in the US. If it is actually illegal, it's not very well enforced. We have many laws like that in the US. For example, in Pennsylvania, apparently WAAAAAAY back when, they made a law saying oral sex is illegal (this was like maybe 1900s?) and it is still technically a law because they never officially got rid of it 😂

  • Rhasputine Rhag

    100% agree. SLURPING NOODLES TASTES BETTER!!! Also, in Canada at least it's not really rude to call the waiter if you need something, or at least make them aware with your hand that you need something. Lastly, and I might be wrong, but isn't it rude to eat and walk in Japan? I thought i heard / read that somewhere.

You can't generalize America based on where you lived because it's different all over.

    Many of the "being rude" things are typically American I think, sounds stupid. How is it rude to get the attention from the waiter?? Drinking with co-workers? That's the best time you spend with them. Drinking in public is illegal here (Scandinavia) too I think but nobody cares, specially in Fridays and Saturdays. Slurping food however is bad behavior here too. For the nose thing, don't think anybody cares what you do.

    I yell and raise my hand in American when the waiter/waitress isn't there when I need something and I am polite about it but my family is still like "noooo shhh just wait" like if I want napkins while having food dripping down my face, why should I wait??? :') I never understood why it isn't polite here to not get your waiter's/waitress's attention politely??

    oh and I never have blown my nose in public, I think it's gross so I am constantly sniffing, maybe I should just move to japan.. XD (jk)

    it's illegal to drink even in the sidewalk in mexico, i got arrested for 12 hours, we usually drink on the sidewalk but as soon as we see the cops coming we all run inside, once a cop shot a frien on his knee, policemen said he was too suspicious for running and said they shot him cuz they thought he had drugs on him, the fine for drinking on the street or on the sidewalk is 20 amerian dollars or 12 hours in prison.
