Spoiled children

The first time I saw a European mini car from a distance, I mistook it as one of those American battery-operated toy cars; I use this funny memory as a reminder of the vast cultural and environmental differences between the U.S. and Europe. Like a coddling grandparent, America enjoys spoiling its residents like rotten grandchildren. As one of those spoiled grandchildren, the first time I forgot to bring bags to the grocery store here, I stuffed all my food into a purse because I thought buying a grocery bag was just odd. But after living in this environmentally friendly atmosphere, it seems Europeans are spoiling their children with a cleaner earth instead of merely a convenient one.
