A BRITISH tourist has sparked huge debate after he asked his sandwich to be buttered while in the US – only to get back something very bizarre.
They explained that they were on holiday in Michigan with their dad when they ordered a takeaway sandwich.
They wrote on Reddit: "They don't butter their sandwiches across the pond.
