Those are great Tracey! I love the ketchup chips one, when I was in the US they looked at me like I had 10 heads when I asked about ketchup chips!

All great reasons!
I would say our social programs, like a year of mat leave.
I worked for an American company so I had to say zee all the time and spell without the 'u' or people would complain and my quality score would go down
