As sad as it is, most of these things are true. I am American and I live between Baltimore, MD. and Washington, DC. I have a few (I'm guilty of many of these myself):

1. Breakfast during the work week is either Fast Food or instant food.
2. When you have one sign that sais "Support Our Troops" and another that sais " No War For Oil" on the same lawn.
3. You Jackass of a president Visits the Queen of England and brings his own chef. (Don't laugh, Bush really did that)
4. You leave home at 5 AM to avoid the city traffic on the way to work.

You know you're an American when...

1. When your daily commute distance would mean you'd cross two nations in any other part of the world.

2. When the same people who badmouth your nation would do anything to be there.

3. When your national anthem plays, you actually get a tear in your eye.

4. When you have the freedom to disagree with your government and not fear being locked up for it.

5. When you can buy diapers, get your oil changed, grab some fast food, and some furniture, all in the same store.

...you spell theater instead of theatre.
...you eat out more then you do in.
...you would rather drive (x) miles just so you can get a bite to eat, rather then cook.
...you own enough movies to equal your car payment.

Yes I am American, and I am guilty of these.

... you don't realize that the names of countries and groups of people get capitalized.

Folks! Proper nouns are always capital:

America , American, Canada, Canadian

See, All of these word start with a CAPITAL LETTER! Also, when you put your name on something, the first letter is capital. Look at my signature, the T in Tim is always capital.

you know you're an American when you circle the parking lot more than twice looking for a spot close to the door of your gym!

hahahah ... so far from what I can tell all true (within context) ... and a million more besides.

... but I would be lying if I said that despite these irritations, I would not want to live in any other country.

... but then again, I suppose most citizens have a natural bias for their own countries, right?

You know your American when you realise most of Europe are extremely good at geography and your caught out when you say "I am from Calgary, British Columbia".

I know....(Innsbruck, Austria. 2002. The couple turned and walked away fuming!)
