Cultural: Small things - numbers

Random facts:

1. We buy eggs in cartons of 10, not 12 as in the USA.

 

2. Meat and cheese, pasta, fruits/veggies, and pre-packaged things are measured in grams and kilos, not ounces and pounds.

3. Drinks and fluids are measured in ml and liters - not ounces and quarts.

 

4. Sizes are different - you just have to learn them. Ladies and men's clothing are mostly sold in a numbered size - not S-M-L though they are also sold that way.  When they are sold in SML - THEY have to translate them as to which is which since they do not translate correctly in Polish.  For example, the word for "Small" in Polish would be "maly" - and the word for "Medium" in Polish would be "srednia".  "Large" would be "duza".  

 You just have to learn your size.

 OK, so we laughed at the words on this box.  Can you imagine this being for sale in the states? This was in Lidl.

5. Shoe sizes are numbers like 37-41 for ladies. Unless they are imported from the UK, in which case they have numbers from 5-8.

And now you know!
