We LOVE Italy, but WHY...

Jump to last reply

About the middle of each trip to Italy (on number 14 right now) my wife and I look at each other and Wonder out loud as much as we love Italy, WHY do they do x, y, or z. Sure that most of it is simply different culture, lifestyle, etc, but here are 3 WHYS that maybe Italians, expats in Italy or others can explain for us--

1--Driving. Autostrada safer than US. Other roads okay re drivers except for tailgating. WHY do this? I know you want to pass.and it's fine with me. But you are so close you actually have to slow down in order to clear my bumper and pull out to pass. We speed up to pass. How does being a few inches from my rear bumper actually "help" you pass?

2--Dogs. Had them for over 40 years. Love them. WHY do you need to bring them everywhere you go? I don't need them in my restaurant humping a table leg, wandering under my legs at an outside bar, peeing and shi$$ing in front of me as I walk thru beautiful piazza and streets. Had all that happen just in one afternoon in Bologna. Multiply parts of that conduct for 27 days and it gets real old, real fast. I'd rather you take your children out and leave your dog at home. They are more interesting and more housebroken:)

3--Toilet "stands" and toilet "no seats". It becomes a guessing game in Italy as to what you will find when you in a door marked "toilette". WHY the "stands"? Women can't like it. Even in nice places, they have it. Too expensive to change from the old days? Makes one feel you have just gone from one of the most alluring and sophisticated countries in Europe to the third world. And while on the subject, WHY no seats on actual toilets? Can you actually buy them that way, or do you buy one with the seat and just remove it:)

I realize there are pretty petty things in an otherwise wonderful country, but just wondering?
