27 Phrases Americans Use That Non-Americans Can’t Seem To Understand

Americans are known for being ignorant of other cultures and ways of life. However, did you know a number of non-Americans don’t even realize we have different time zones?

Anyway, these tweets will give you an idea of what phrases really only exist in America and nowhere else.
