1. Air conditioning everywhere, pumped up to the max.
Don’t get me wrong, when it’s 108°F outside, AC is a real blessing and I wouldn’t survive a summer in NYC without it. But do we really have to go from sweltering heat to literally 40°F indoors? Can’t we find some nice middle ground between sweating our asses off and having to wrap ourselves in a blanket to make it through a day at the office?
2. All the commercial breaks on TV.
Literally every five minutes. There are so many commercial breaks on network TV that a 40-minute long episode ends up lasting an hour. That’s a third of your time spent watching stupid commercials.
3. The huge gaps in the toilet doors.
Also, due to there not being "occupied" notices on toilet doors, they instead make the door gap really large. 🚽 pic.twitter.com/8dO18CtX7i

Privacy is overrated anyway.
4. The obsession with icy cold water.
The longer I stay in the US, the more I actually like icy cold water. It’s definitely nice and refreshing in the summer. But restaurants serve glasses filled with ice cubes to the brim in the middle of January. Do you really need to feel even colder when it’s freezing outside? Also, does no one have sensitive teeth in this country?
5. The thing you call French bread.

This is NOT French bread, this is an insult to France and to all breads.
6. Having a hundred flavors of everything.
Dear Oreo, what's up w/ all your weird flavors? No need to mess with perfection. pic.twitter.com/8OYCQQDpmp

I’m always up for a bit of variety but this is pushing it a bit too far.
