    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 at the front.
    4. Only in America......do people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet Coke.
    5. Only in America......do banks leave both doors to the vault 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.

    I think most of that applies to Canada too, and possably other places.
    Not very funny put in that context.

    I wish.
    #3, they do that here as well - and for good reason. They want you to buy more and spend more time in the store. They also don't want to be robbed as easily for drugs, and that's an added level of protection.

    #4, so *very* true

    #5, the vault contains no cash while the bank is open.

    If jack helped you off a horse would you help jack off a horse??

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
