I am starting to believe that Italians think that all Americans in Italy are alcoholics.

When an Italian friend orders wine or beer in a restaurant without specifying a size, they receive a reasonable portion. When I order, I always manage to end up with twice as much as I want.

I guess I have it coming; I don't understand much of what the waiters are saying so I tend to just nod my head. Still, I find it hard to believe that anybody drinks a beer as large as the one I got today over their lunch break.

If my experience is representative, I understand why all Americans in Italy are alcoholics.
