Todays "Times" says that Americans do most things one hour before the Brits do.
Americans, it says, start work at 8am, Brits rarely before 9 am. American lunch is at 12 noon, the UK is 1pm. American dinner is at 6pm, UK eats around 7.
But how many hours do you need to actually work?
I start at 9, generally and finish around 3.30, 4 days a week. So I do a 26 hour week as I don't stop for lunch. Her ladyship works from 9 till around 4.30, 5 days a week.
I mean, that's enough, isn't it?
..and I want 6 weeks holiday every year too.
