Is Trump letting you in? Be prepared for attitude. I don't know how the U.K is, but people in the U.S are pricks. Any time I run into someone from another country who moved here or is visiting for a while, they're always thrown off by how fast everyone moves here doing things "why are you guys always rushing?" and how rude everyone is. Both are accurate. So prepare for that sort of thing. Don't tell ANYONE you don't have to that you're new here when it comes to salesman, etc. They'll see you as a sucker and try to take advantage of you, especially with buying a car! Watch what you eat. We have too many convenient fast food places and you're likely to gain weight if you don't watch yourself. Congrats on the job. Hope it works out. Maryland is a pretty quiet state in comparison to others. You should be alright. If it were New York or Chicago, I'd say just stay in the U.K lol. Maryland has generally nicer people, but you'll still notice a difference. We don't have free porn on regular tv like you guys. Bring a laptop.
