Why I Love America (as A Limey)

10 reasons I love America as a Brit. Every country has it's good and bad points and America is no different but this is a list of things I like about the place.
1Patti Smith

The bars - long, dark, laid back bars with sport on the TV where you can just sit at the bar and chill all afternoon without any hassle and get quietly drunk

The women - much more friendly and open than British women

Customer service - I don't know if it seems good to Americans but customer service is so shite in Britain you feel like you are a rock star in comparison
Good Morning Spider

The cops - I reported a stolen car in England and police didn't give a shit. Some shady immigrant at an electronics shop in NYC sold me an empty box instead of a camera and I showed it to a cop nearby and he went apeshit on those motherfuckers.
5Jackson Browne
Late for the Sky

Fat people - I'm a bit porky and it made me feel slim.
6 The Jayhawks

Hollywood - lots of shite but at least they do some decent movies compared to the up their own ass British movies who either have stereotype east-end London gangsters, Hugh Grant being Hugh Grant or is a tale about some deprived white bloke who happens to love a Muslim girl and is sposed to say that multi-culturalism works even tho it doesn't.
Forever Changes

Tax - lower than ours
8King's X
Gretchen Goes to Nebraska

Prices - some things maybe too high like telecoms but overall your prices are really cheap due to such a large market for basics.
9Linda Ronstadt
Heart Like a Wheel

The food - I can go to a little shop in NYC and pay 2 dollars for a huge fuck off sandwich with fresh yummy cooked pork and get served with a smile in 1 minute by someone who acts like they want me to come back tomorrow. In London I pay 4 quid (6 dollars) for a limp day old sandwich with a bit of egg and cheese and stand in a queue for 5 mins to be served by a twat.

The scenery - it's all spaced out but fking hell man the sequoias, death valley, new england in autumn, san francisco, niagra, the rockies, yosemite - gobsmacking
