    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 in 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.

    And, most of all...

    Only in America...we rush to beat the traffic lights at intersections,
    the trains at railroad crossings, and the boats at draw bridges. Yet,
    we'll stand patiently for 3 hours on a golf course.
