Embora the USA sejam uma colony do United Kingdom, both countries têm very different habits:
* Drinking alcohol in public spaces and at children’s parties é ok in the UK, but not in the USA;
* Tipping não é obrigatório in the UK. Já in the USA, waiters, taxi drivers and hotel staff se sentem ofendidos se não ganharem uma generous tip;
* Ser friendly com desconhecidos não é common in the UK. Já in the USA, até o caixa do supermarket te diz ‘Good morning, how are you?’;
* Banter (= insult alguém de modo humourous) is not very common in the USA, but in the UK it’s friendly and represents uma tentativa de aproximação.
