Shaking hands instead of kissing on the cheek
Sure, men will usually shake hands with men, but when meeting a woman, the common greeting is always a kiss on the cheek. Prepare to make your friends at home VERY uncomfortable when you get back.
Stop for pedestrians
Traffic in this city is bad enough. Could you imagine how bad it would be if we actually waited for people to get through crosswalks?
Pay $20 for a drink
Any Miamian who does this should be ashamed. Not because the drink is hideously overpriced. But because you didn’t know the bartender well enough to get it for free.
Think you can live without a car
It’s cute that you moved here from the northeast or Europe and thought the Metrorail went somewhere other than Dadeland. Unless you’re one of those lovely people who brags about “never leaving the beach,” you’re being delusional. And no, you can’t borrow my car to go to Costco.
