    What makes me anxious ( I am Czech) is dealing with the Czech clerks. Most of them don't go by the "just say yes" mentality and it turns out to be a very unpleasant experience to deal with them. Not only you have to "kiss their behinds" throughout the whole process" but you usually come/call at the bad time and Miss so-n-so is on lunch; or she hasn't returned from her 3-hour lunch yet; or she is not ready to help you as she has to water her plans first or finish paining her nails...you get the picture.
    That's one of the things I love about America: the clerks are usually very helpful and nice!! No anxiety there!

    That's because if they're not, there's a good chance the customer will complain to their bosses and get them fired. It's not that there's no anxiety there, it's just that it's the clerks who are anxious! :wink: (Unless we're talking about government bureaucrats--then in America it's much the same as in Czech :x ).

    Hey, if they are nice because they don't want to get fired, that works for me! Whatever gets the job done....
