    The food. When coming from Europe, the food just disappoints constantly & everywhere. At restaurants, at grocery stores, at 'bakeries' and even the chocolate bars at gas stations taste off.

    Also the displayed prices for products not including tax used to make me seethe. And I mean violently seethe.

      That's literally the point. VAT would be a lot lower if it worked the same way in the EU.

        I just got back from Portugal and that's my thought.

        Bacalhau? Literally the saltiest fricking thing you could possibly imagine. It's barely edible.

        Frango assado? Literally just chicken doused in lemon juice. Have fun cutting the meat off the tiny ass bones yourself.

        Chanfana? Ok it's good, but once again, they're too lazy to take the meat off the bone so now it's your job.

        I saw more pajeet restuarants in Lisbon than I saw portuguese restaurants.

    Finding a public shower outside a truck stop (which charges $14) can be very difficult in a lot of America. I have a solar shower bag, but need a secluded public place to use it and a tree to hang it from. One time I strung it from a skylight grate in a one-person park restroom. The next time I passed through town, there was a sign on the restroom saying "bathing and showering prohibited". There's a drain on the floor, not sure why they would care about a little water.
    A gay kid in Lone Pine, California pulled me out of a chair by my foot, then continued to harass me on the street. I eventually had to threaten to pepper spray him to make him leave me alone.

      Public pools. Go on a day rain is forecast, if it rains you can sometimes get a pass to go back a second time. Pay the $5 or whatever to use the pool it's usually not much. Also state parks along rivers and lakes if they have a campground, pay the day use fee but use the campground shower facilities. Ymmv but that's what I've done.

        Public pools bathrooms have showers, don't bathe in the pool, in case that wasn't obvious.

      Wrong, US is the best place to live food-wise outside of Asia
      >but-
      No. Even if you don't like the restaurants around where you are, fine, go to any grocery store and you have a greater selection than entire euro towns

        Selection means nothing when the quality is bad.

          quality isn't bad unless you select poorly. You selected poorly.

            Ok Mr. Know-It-All, where can you find bread in the US that's on par with the quality of bread in France? I'll wait.

              Depends on where you are and what you want. You will have to find the best local bakeries (which may require driving if it's a rural area).
              - Clear Flour Bread (Brookline, MA)
              - Iggy's (excellent and most supermarkets in Boston area carry it)
              - When Pigs Fly (really dense bread, lots of specialty flavors I love it but not for everyone)

              I've been to some supermarkets with a meager bakery selection I'm sure you can find areas that don't have good bread, but that's pretty much true about any kind of generalization you try to make about the US. It's a huge place.

                The quality of stuff in the US varies a LOT and is generally unregulated and unpredictable unless you're familiar with the place or look at reviews. This includes things like supermarkets (strangely for a country that invented standardization) which vary a ton in quality and are not national chains like they are in europe. The US also has a lot of specialty stores, there's health food markets for people into that and stores that import a ton of shit from europe for the connoisseurs.

                Yeah bread is tricky since quality can vary massively and there are many factors to consider (including freshness). Finding good bread can be tougher than most other options. But it can still be done.

                Bread is tricky because again its not considered "important" in the US like it is in europe and also environmental conditions affect it, altitude, the type of wheat used in the flour which varies across the world.

                Euros just seem to do very little research about the places they go and the local customs there despite traveling a lot more than other peoples. They'll go to an American restaurant with a huge menu or where you can get a steak cooked to order with a salad and sides for under $20 yet order a grilled cheese sandwich and water.

                Or will only go to fast food places only because they don't want to pay an extra $2.50 per person tip but complain that the Taco Bell and Popeyes they ate everywhere was garbage.

                Do they act like this in Thailand, only eating McDonalds because they're unfamiliar with Thai cuisine? There are certain things you can find easily in europe like fresh bread everywhere, but are just not a thing in the US, just like there's certain things you can find in europe but can't find in asia at all... but they expect the US to be just like europe and complain when it isn't.

                Do they also b***h about trivial shit when they visit the 3rd world? Like the tax thing (done because sales tax rates vary by location and product sold, but for marketing as well). Euros will b***h about the fact that sales tax isn't included on the menu even though the tax itself is like pennies on the dollar, 6 or 8 percent which is less than half of what european VAT is.

                Euos are only like this with the US lmao. It gets funnier when you tke into account most of their criticism, like food or public transportation, are the ones Americans have been willing to accept or at least entertain and they all bizarrely think what they have to say is novel and insightful. It's very strange and obnoxious. I'm surprised there isn't a word for it yet.

            You can walk into pretty much any grocery store in the US and find fresh baked bread, fresh steaks, a massive selection of cheese and wine from all over the world, and a massive amount of veges and fruit. I had a really hard time finding good food in Europe in a grocery. The selection was just so small. It was a pain waiting for the weekend farmers markets and then paying hugely inflated prices. I do prefer the bakeries in Europe, in general, to the US. Even the smaller Euro towns I visited had 2 or 3 really good bakeries. Those are hard to come by in the US.

        There’s some French expat running a bakery in every town over 20k people in America. He usually can be found giving no fricks, being rude to customers, but extremely courteous to his regulars. He will often speak fondly of France before telling you he left because it was a socialist hell hole and how if we aren’t careful it will happen here. Up and down the entire east coast across the Midwest the Pacific Northwest, and the west coast you will find him. The only places you may not be 30 miles from some frog running a quality French bakery with authentic French attitude is if you happen to find yourself in Alabama or Mississippi but if you’re in one of those shit holes you’ve got bigger problems.

    Moved around a lot growing up then left the country a few years ago so I think foreigners complaining about food are legit. But it's a bit much to say worst experience. I can't stand needing a car and sitting in traffic. I can't stand how far everything is. I can't stand always having to be aware of everyone around me at all times. Europe has it to some degree but in East Asia I'm completely carefree. I can't imagine getting mugged in Seoul or Tokyo or anywhere in China. It never happened to me in the US bc I'm paranoid but you can't go down back allays or random communities and streets like you can in East Asia. You're 'restricted' to safe areas like you're being limited to walking paths in IKEA or Disneyland. It's really weird and hyper real for the world's most powerful and wealthy country.
