The ACA’s goal is to be excessively good at doing absolutely nothing, while involving as many people as possible in the process.  We’re not sure if we’re failing miserably at it or succeeding beyond our wildest dreams.  Frankly, we don’t know the difference.

For all you Interns in the ACA's "Right Off The Boat" program, here's some useful information for your adjustment to American culture.

Some of the more common stereotypes of American citizens include: Boastful and arrogant. Disrespectful of authority. Drunkard. Extravagant and wasteful. Lazy. Loud and obnoxious. Promiscuous. Think they know everything.

If you don't see anything that looks like a flush handle, step away from the toilet and see if it flushes after a few seconds.

Many American companies have women in management positions. So don't be surprised if the person who meets you is a woman, not a man. If you feel uncomfortable, focus on the business at hand and ignore the fact that she happens to be a woman. Do not flirt with her, refer to body parts, ask her out on a date, or make suggestive or sexual remarks.
