I think these ingrained behaviours are a product of your age and your environment, but also how useful they are which, in turn, will decide how quickly you adopt them.
I have no expectation of taps (faucets) in toilets (restrooms) having sensors, even though they often do. I expect to have to push down on them and they will run for 30 seconds then shut-off when I'm only halfway done - similarly with light switches in public places.
I expect every new release of software by either Microsoft or Adobe to have totally new menu structures and different navigation so I will have to learn them all over again. This does however validate my rather OCD knowledge of keyboard shortcuts....
Being a Blackberry user, I expect my phone to have a qwerty keyboard and a unified inbox - even though I find the odds are increasingly stacked against me - and I design mobile phones for a living! (not for RIM)
I do, however expect any mouse to scroll horizontally as well as vertically.
My behaviours, and therefore my expectations, will change over time but as I get older and feel less-and-less the need to buy the 'latest and greatest' gadget my expectations are only that new things will be different, usually in some arbitrary way, and by the time I learn them they will have changed again.
