10 reasons that Americans are aggravating….
They don't say "that's a bad idea," they say "that's a great idea, and I think we can enhance it by…" and then suggest something entirely different.
They produce excessively long documents that contain no information.
They spend at least 30 minutes of every global conference call running through the US features list.
Their complete inability to comprehend time zones.
They say “media outreach” instead of “ringing up a few people.”
They only have two weeks holiday a year, get into work at 8am every day, and yet fail to produce any PR collaterals of any use.
They don't get irony.
Their radio stations don’t play anything other than the Eagles, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and Pink Floyd.
Consultancy side American PRs suck up to their clients to a truly toe-curling degree.
They don't drink.
They 'oversee' UK PR campaigns when the only UK media they know is the BBC, The Financial Times and “The Times of London.”
They don't get sarcasm.
They describe The Register's humour as 'irreverent' which it isn't. Irreverent humour has two characteristics - it is not funny and it is American. The Register is neither.
Their assumption that Stockholm and London are separated by nothing more than a short taxi ride.
The fact that their first comment on this post would be: “I think it lists more than 10 reasons.”
They get paid more and live in bigger houses.
