Not too long ago I was the only European on staff here. Since then the balance has shifted a tad, but we Old Landers still remain very much in the minority here in the Pajiba Offices. While we obviously overall get on like a house on fire, this does still lead to some occasionally amusing misunderstandings and sharing of differing cultural mores. Yesterday, a thread popped up on Reddit that addressed that very issue. It’s a lot of fun. You can check out the full thing here, but below are some highlights:
