LOL, so true. I noticed some of these things myself, but never bothered to question or wonder about them. Just goes to show how preoccupied we are with the mundane stuff.

HAHA!! That is hilarious! Yes it is true, only in America. I love the one where they make sick people walk to the back of the store to get there perscription, and the healthy people get their cigerattes right in front! And were they call them apartment, but they are all stuck together! Haha, that was great, if you think of more, post them!

How about being charged anywhere from 25 to 50 cents just to put air in your car's tires!! I finally found a place with free air.
