Shopping in the States

I've been out shopping a few times since I have been home and not surprisingly I have had troubles! First, its just weird to be back in a regular store where you can bargain for the price you want and you don't have an employee helping you the instant you get in the store. The next big difference, which is probably the biggest one, is the fact that I can actually understand what other shoppers or talking about, I also forget that I can ask for help or ask questions about what I want to purchase. The other thing that was hard to get use to, was using my debit card. I almost forgot how to swipe the card, my roommate had to remind me how to put my card in and sign it. Overall, the biggest difference was just being able to ask for help and to understand what other people are talking about.
