Having the perspective of someone on the outside looking in can make you rethink what you’re accustomed to every day. This can be as simple as your specific life to the lives of a country as a whole. People who don’t live in America shared their thoughts on what they thought every American had in their homes on an online forum. Whether these ten items are genuinely in every household in the U.S. is up to you to decide.

Garbage Disposal

Apparently, we in the U.S. have it made by having a “sink that eats things,” as one individual so wholesomely put it. Many outside the country said they had never seen a sink with a garbage disposal in real life. Others who used to live in the States but now live abroad claimed this was one of the biggest things they missed.

Big Fridges

According to those who responded to the forum, going to get groceries every two days, if not daily, is extremely common. Of course, refrigerators are still a thing outside the U.S., but where we differ is our fridges’ size. The belief that all Americans have fridges that “can hold two weeks of groceries with ease” comes up time and time again. Not only that, but so did the concept of having multiple fridges in one home.

Top Loading Washing Machine

Like fridges, the U.S. has quite sizable washing machines. Those who had visited and seen this style of the washer were baffled at how much laundry it could fit. As the proud owner of one such washing machine, I will never take the fact that I can clean several large blankets in my washer at one go ever again!

A Basketball Hoop

Okay, funny story time. Growing up, my father purchased a basketball hoop for our driveway. It was nice enough, but the only problem is that none of us played or had any genuine interest in the sport. To this day, I have no idea if that hoop has ever been used. Nevertheless, I can be part of this belief for some people.

BBQ Grill

You know a statement is at least somewhat accurate when a majority of its comments only have to do with what kind of BBQ grill you have on your deck (not that you’re curious, but ours uses charcoal). An individual even declared,” I’m a vegetarian, and I have a grill on my deck.” Grills: the ultimate equalizer.

Baseball Bat

Although baseball is considered America’s favorite pastime, the contributor raised this idea for another reason. They believed every American home had a baseball bat for the owners to look into strange noises during the night,” or at least films and TV told me so.” I can tell you that I do not have such a bat. I, personally, keep a very old, heavy, batted-up bowling pin as my horror movie situation defense.

Multiple Cars

The exact vehicle quantity varied from reply to reply. Some claimed everyone had two cars, while others claimed three or more. Regardless, Americans seemingly have lots of garage space.

Dishwasher

A commenter claimed to have had two dishwashers installed when building their new home. First, I’m very jealous. Second, if dishwashers were already on the list, I can only imagine how many jaws dropped when they saw that comment.

Microwave

“Yep, everyone has a microwave, yet you have never seen one advertised on TV,” is how one person replied to this item. And it’s true, too! Think about the last time you ever saw a microwave commercial. We also appear to be remarkable for having a popcorn setting.

Flags

While they might not be at every home, American Flags certainly feel like they are everywhere you look. Buildings, porches, parks, they’re even on cars and clothing. If you can think of it, there’s bound to be something somewhere with those stars and stripes on it.
