It is commonly believed that Americans are
large and lazy. This is false. In reality, they are the kings of convenience.
If something can be done quicker and easier, ideally from the comfort of a car,
then, hell, it becomes the only way to do it. Cashpoints, movie rentals, coffee
shops - they’d have drive-through surgery if only someone could find a way.
Good on them. Shaving hours off the day means more time to visit gyms and
waxing emporiums. Convenience? It’s slimming.
