Who came up with the 'sitting in the front seat of a cab/taxi in Australia'? In my 64 years living in Aus' I've never heard such a thing.

I have always sat in the front seat of taxis in country towns but not in the big cities.

Not too sure about these "traditions". I think a number of them are false.

Pointing fingers at people is considered rude in western culture. I am from Australia and have never heard of riding in the back of a taxi as being considered ride. In fact most everyone here rides in the back.

I found out in Taiwan about leaving a small portion of food on your plate to indicate satiation. Having been raised in the ‘clean your plate’ style, I got some very strange looks—and my hosts kept ordering more food!

Interesting customs. In Kenya my tribe the Kikuyus, expect you eat when you come to the home. It is rude to the woman of the home if you say no. Ahsante sana=Thank you very much.

I always sit in the front seat. It’s polite to be equal to the driver. The same in Ireland too. If I was a woman though, I’d sit in the back seat.
