The differences in work culture between America and Europe are well stereotyped. Americans assume that Europeans get a three month break each year to drink wine and frolic in the countryside, Europeans assume that Americans must work 80 hours a week or face the wrath of manager Michael Scott.
The truth might not be quite as day and night, but one Redditor shared a story that prompted a flurry of interesting responses.
"Left the United States to escape crappy work culture for Europe," they wrote. "New job hires an American marketing manger...." Here's their story:
