Life in America: waiting vs reality

There are always a lot of everyday moments connected with life in another country. Getting into an unfamiliar society or even trying on it, we unwittingly compare the conditions with the familiar environment and look for some advantages and disadvantages. It helps a lot to put together an opinion on whether this place is suitable for us.

We present you 7 pros and 7 cons of real life in the United States, which will give an idea of life in this country.

Advantages of life in the United States

  1. Climate

    In the US, incomparably more sunny days than in Russia and the CIS countries. Even in the northern states, the climate is rather mild. Spring and autumn, as a rule, are warm and long, winter is not very long, and summer is clear. The closer to the ocean, the more humid and pleasant the air. For many visitors to the United States, skin and hair condition improves, mood improves.

  2. Politeness

    It is often unusual for a person from the post-Soviet space to see smiles from all sides. Smile and courteous treatment - a required element of the culture of communication in America. You will never be rude and will not express personal opinion. For those around you, you are a person worthy of respect, pleasant tactful conversation and good mood.

  3. Advantages of life in the USA - climate and nature - American ButlerCustomer service

    Almost all outlets are focused on the comfort of the client. By purchasing a thing or paying for services, the supplier company gives a full guarantee of return for a period of two months to a year. And in order to make it a little clearer, let us examine small examples from the lives of Russians living in the USA.

    - The girl bought the care cosmetics for the face, but at home she discovered that the cream did not fit her. In the store she was returned the full cost of the entire set.

    - The woman is engaged in cultivation of garden plants and orders saplings on the Internet. After planting some bushes, they simply did not like her - the company returned the money and paid for the work of uprooting.

    - The guy who ordered the sofa in a large furniture store, found that cat wool and dust are too sticky on the upholstery fabric. The sofa was taken to the store with a refund.

  4. Clean on the streets

    Many people saw in the cinema beautiful American streets with neat houses and lawns. And they really are - even in a busy urban array, the streets look clean and well maintained.

  5. Parks and public places

    In the US, you will always find leisure options and pleasant places to walk. In each, even a small town there are parks, squares and beautiful natural landscapes. And besides this - the mass of shopping centers, entertainment complexes, bars and other places for meetings and socializing.

  6. Career opportunities

    USA is an ideal place for career development or even your own business. There are most of the offices of the largest companies, there is public support for private business and there are many communities of professionals in various fields.

  7. Minimum bureaucracy

    Payment of bills, registration at the place of residence, connection of communications, workflow, most banking transactions - all this and not only can be done online. Without queues, long waiting and visits to the relevant departments.

Cons of life in the US - real estate prices in America and expensive medicine - American Butler

Cons of life in the USA

  1. Need to have a car

    The distances in the USA are huge, it is often simply unreal to do without a car. For example, large stores are always located away from homes, and using public transport can be more expensive and less comfortable.

  2. Property prices

    The better the area - the higher the price. But in addition to money for the purchase of real estate and utility payments, you will pay a fairly high monthly tax. As a result, the maintenance of their own homes is practically no different from renting.

  3. Pros and cons of living in America - photos of fast food and hamburgers - American ButlerFood

    This is especially true of school or corporate food. The industry of fast food and the habit of the population to not the most healthy food leads to its greater availability. Eating right is often more expensive and more difficult.

  4. Taxes not listed on price lists

    The amount indicated in the price list is not the full price for the product. At the checkout to the amount of purchases can be added 3-15% of the amount depending on the state. On average, purchases are 8% more expensive than you expected.

  5. Expensive medicine

    Even with medical insurance (it can cost from $200 to $2,000 per month), the prices for the services of doctors may be exorbitant or not fully covered. Often, the insurance does not include dental services.

  6. Tip

    In the US, it is customary to tip everyone who serves you. Usually it is 10-15% of the amount of the check. If you do not leave a tip, you can face an open condemnation or deterioration of service in the future.

  7. Measurement system

    In America, the English system of measures is used, not metric. That is, be prepared that in everyday life you will have to use inches, feet, yards, miles and pounds instead of the usual units.
