Mike's gallavanting around northern France at the moment and without a computer (he says) so it's just me, Expat Mum this week.
I'll take this opportunity to update my US/UK knowledge if you don't mind.
It got me thinking about other "very American" things and wondering which ones have crossed the Pond.
Self-service checkouts? They are all over the place here and I did notice them at larger shops in England this year. My question - are they better than the American ones? I fall for them every time - "Oh, let's not stand in line" I think. Twenty minutes later I'm arguing with the robotic voice that I have, in fact, placed the damn bananas in the bag. There's a reason they have an employee specifically for self service assistance. It never works.
