    We don't need 本音 in the west. Apparently we're more upfront. Only, if you do it in Japan, you have the excuse of "being drunk"

    I am from Greece and although we are "closer" to the USA we do all these 5 things the same way people in Japan do them!
    #1 it's totally legal
    #2 we do the same too (in "good" restaurants we might call the waiter just by waving)
    #3 personally i hate chewing noises but many people do them and don't care or notice them
    #4 in a party you drink. end of conversation
    #5 what's the problem with that??

    I lived in Japan for 9 years and loved it but the one thing I could never get used to is a lot of people spit on the street. I remember I was walking across a bridge in downtown Tokyo and the sidewalk on the bridge looked like a sea of jellyfish had washed up on it. It was rather disgusting and difficult to avoid stepping in any of it. Luckily, I only saw that several times over the years but~ dayum!~ that was nasty!

    In German restaurants you raise your hand and shout "Excuse me!" too. But slurping is considered suuuuuper rude too. ^^" We're a mix of both countries haha. XD

    no Americans dont telepathically look at the waiter. You can raise your hand and yell at the wait to get their attention. Its just you who thinks its rude. If they dont look your way you will be served last HAHAHA

    1. U.S. is backwards in many ways, except in Las Vegas, for my favorite example.... There are many non-enforcement zones there, particularly on the strip. Even drinking in vehicles is OK!(?) as long as you are not behind the wheel. 2. I've heard that in Russia (and others) it is a comment to burp/belch/fart after or while eating! 3. On youtube you can't spank your girlfriend or show a nipple but you can chug a 750ml bottle of liquor. 4. sniffling falls into the group of noises certain people can't stand! Krinkling cellophane... yeah just don't try to open it quietly because that's impossible so just FSCKING OPEN IT ALREADY and be done.

    You've never flagged down a waiter in America? I think people definitely do it here, it's not unusual, and I don't think it's rude. But it's not always necessary because they check on you a lot. I was just in the UK and I had to do it all the time because they don't come back to your table to give you the check or anything if you don't at a lot of places. So I don't think this is a strictly Japanese thing.

    In America, we had a strong temperance movement that achieved Prohibition (alcohol). Its possible that the rule against "public intoxication" is connected to this. Typically, its a municipal rule the gets enforced sporadically

    It depends on where you are in the United States about drinking alcohol in public. It varies from state to state, in Louisiana, it is completely fine to walk down the streets with an open container, as long as you aren't bothering anyone.

    You can slurp soup, too. I was in a Japanese restaurant (in the States), and I was eating the miso soup with a spoon, politely, without noise. The Japanese server came to me and said I can hold the bowl (it was small enough) with my hands and slurp it because it shows appreciation for the tastiness of the soup.

    Nose blowing, exactly!!!! Japan has this one right....
    I hate when people blow their noses. It makes 0 sense whatsoever to remove the disgust out onto some rag and simply create a biohazard. I'll listen to a good sniff all day as opposed to being around some snot-hand looser with pockets full of boogers.

      What I detest in America is that sometimes in a restaurant some rude person will blow their nose loudly into a napkin. Makes me want to throw up and I can't eat after that. Yet, others don't seem to mind at all.

    As someone who hates being ignored by waiters and waitresses I would love to be allowed to yell at them. Why isnt this a thing. We are already considered more obnoxious than almost everyone right.

  • Omni nulla

    the reason yelling at waiters is rude here is because it is expected that they keep you from wanting for anything. asking a waiter or waitress for something is insinuating that they have done an unsatisfactory job.

    Wtf are you talking about, calling a waiter over isn't that big of a deal in America. That seems like a personal issue. As long as you say excuse me respectively or call their name out its okay. Otherwise, what's the point of the waiter stating their name and introducing themselves?

    I only have a problem with not blowing your nose. All the mucus will run down your throat, that's gross. I can see how hard they work, they have a work hard/play hard mentality. I totally get it. I don't mind slurping as long as it's not splashing everyone sitting at your table.

    Here in Germany i also call the waitress if i want to order something. Sometimes she comes along and asks if everything is okay, but if she's away you can call for her without any problem. And of course drinking alcohol in public places (there are also
    exceptions) is allowed here, too. Generally i only know that this isn't allowed in the U.S.A. and no other country

    Some american rules and habits are soo weird to me... Im from Germany and its totally ok to drink in the public.. At least legally.. As said people might judge you, but that's your business...

    But in the restaurants it's probably the same in whole Europe... And I really dislike it. I would prefer the japanese way, just calling the waiter/waitress once you're ready... That feels totally legit to me.. And way more straight forward..

    Ohh and before I forget it: Cool Video and very interesting! =)

    Yeah here in America if you drink in public you're gonna get arrested lol. You could put it in a coffee mug or something so no one can see it though. Technically that's illegal too, but they won't know unless you're like, stumbling around drunk in public (don't do that either lol, being drunk in public is also illegal in some states). I dunno about the no-drinking-with-coworkers thing in America though, my co-workers and I would go get smashed at the bar on weekends together lol. And the reason it's seen as rude to blow your nose in public is because then people think your hands are all snotty and nasty and want you to get away from them (even if that's not true, and how is it not just as gross to wipe your nose with your hand or something? Dumb social standard lol). If you do it in the bathroom though, no one cares.

    I'm Chinese, I live in Canada, and my parents are immigrants from HK (but I was born here). My parents (especially my dad) oftentimes call out to and/or wave down waiters and waitresses, at restaurants, to order. Since I was raised with this mannerism, I'm used to it and it feels normal to me. I don't quite understand how one orders by simply making eye contact with their server.
