One cultural difference that still blows my mind is... blowing my mind, er, nose.
Kids twitter (not on the internet like Sarah Palin or Paris Hilton, but in the trees, like birds) whenever I blow my nose. Now, this could be because I sound like a bull moose in rutting season, but that's not the only reason. A large number of people refuse to blow their noses, preferring to Hoover it down like oysters (which is why I don't eat oysters). I mean, I have a box of tissues in my classroom, and maybe 5 students out of 90 will actually use one.
For the rest, it's sssnnnnSSSSNNNNNNGGGGGGGG! Gulp!
And I gag. Hell, I even gagged just writing this. And I truly despise allergy season...
