Name one cultural thing that you don't understand (in the country you live in.)

As an expat mom, name one cultural thing that you don't understand in the country you live in.

I cannot for the life of me, figure out why the French think it's OK and *more hygenic* to wear Speedos on the beach or at the pool. I am grossed out everytime I see a man or little boy wearing one!

I am not considering myself as an expat, rather as a always and ever journeying woman, but think even as such, I will qualify for answering to that thread.
Living in Germany since some months now, I truly do not get the reason why there is no max. speed at the German highways. In practice it means that in case you are not a race-driver, for the safety of yourself and your own car, you should actually use one track ONLY!
Native to the UK but the way that the theoretically polite Brits behave on the underground in London is beyond me.

They stand in front of the doors blocking the people getting off. They stand inside the doors blocking the people getting off. They never move. The never move down inside the carriages.

I try to avoid the underground as much as possible.
