Culture Shock Tweets...

It has been an interesting adjustment to be back in the USA with plenty of time to observe our surroundings. Jeff has been 'tweeting' interesting experiences over the past few weeks. Many of you have asked for a comprehensive list. Here ya go:
  • Culture shock sign #22: Liesa says I was talking to the lady at the grocery store in Spanish. I blame it on the chinese food.
  • Culture shock sign #21: Grocery store has refrigerated pet food. Speechless. .people.r.crazy.
  • Culture shock #20: Just set up my Papa John's On-Line account. I can even add extra peppers if I want.
  • Culture shock sign #19: U now rent movies from vending machines..not a store. Cool.
  • Culture shock sign #18: @ Brandon High this a.m.: "Honey where U movin' from?" Me: "Peru." Lady: "Lord, I hope u ben talkin' 2 somebody."
  • Culture shock sign #17: At Walmart. Found a tattoo removal kit. That's gotta hurt.
