3. Holiday Time: This little ditty I’m going to keep brief as I’m attempting to stay in denial about it. Coming over to the UK meant an increase of 6 extra days vacation, and 10 extra days for sick time. In the states, vacation and sick time for me was all the same allowance. If the flu hit it meant paid time off was coming out of the same balance as if I was at the beach! This is going to be tough to go back to.
4. Tips: It didn’t take long to realise once being here that the US culture is one that LOVES to give tips for everything! Here, not so much. You rarely tip cab drivers (maybe a couple pounds if they carried luggage), hairstylist = no tips, service at restaurants is almost always either included in your bill or you can leave a few pounds and call it square. There are of course exceptions and tipping is far from frowned upon, but it’s nice to have whatever you leave to be seen as generosity and appreciated instead of expected.
