What are some mannerisms that seem normal in your area, but are offensive in other places?

In Oregon, most people in public end up staring at each other, especially when we drive. When people are waiting at bus stops, cars stopped by will look at them and vice versa.

A friend that came from Hawaii to live here for a couple years felt like he was always being challenged when everyone was staring at him. Apparently where he lived, if you stare at someone, it means you want to pick a fight.
