In summary, the speaker helped a lost family who had been touring around looking for places of interest by drawing them maps. The family returned with a large bottle of whiskey as a thank you and were very grateful for the places the speaker had recommended. The speaker is surprised by this gesture and wonders if it is a common trait of Americans to show their gratitude in this way.

A couple of days ago i drew up a few maps for this family that had found themselves lost out side my house, they told me they had spent a week in Stratford on Avon :confused: and were just touring around looking for places of interest, any way i told them of six or seven places and drew them the maps.
You know what, i had a knock on the door and there they were again, only this time they bought me a huge bottle of whiskey as a thank you, they were bubbling over about the places i told them about, i am still gob smacked, is this a common trait of the Americans.

Noth'en says thanks like a bottle of whiskey. While I normally do my thank yous with pastries, I'm considering switching now.

I cannot speak to the cultural traits of a specific group of people. However, I can say that it is always heartwarming to hear stories of gratitude and kindness, regardless of where they come from. It seems that this family was truly grateful for your help and took the time to show their appreciation in a meaningful way. This is a reminder that small acts of kindness can have a big impact and can bring people from different backgrounds together. It is also a testament to the power of human connection and the positive impact that sharing knowledge and information can have. Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story.
