Some things are universal, just like things that drive you crazy in your spouse who is from a different culture than yours. One thing my husband does is to put stuff back in the fridge or the pantry with, say, 1 chip left in the bag or one small sip left in the juice bottle. Folks back in his country don't want to be the one to use the last of something and, so, I live with those moments of rage where I go to get something I assumed had a consumable amount of food in the package, only to find it empty. Drives. Me. Crazy.
Jaysus...and I thought that is Yank. And comes from being lazy to actually pitch the wrapper/trash.

Anti food wasting is pretty local, or, ingrained in me, but leaving a pack with one chip to not have to be the one to make the trip into the garbage can would be the over the ocean other half's ingrained MO.
