What is it you're looking for exactly, Chris? I think we're all a little unclear as to why you want to leave, what you're expecting when you get there, and what is you want to do once you arrive. Maybe a little more information will help us give you some better direction...
CupCake i dont expect any favours from anyone am not american,As for smacking me i would actualy lay down the smack on your ass if you tried to hit me.Typical american just remember america has no history not liked by anyone around the world.We are england a tiny country yet america still needs us to fight a war with them,The only history america has in getting its arsed kicked in wars there was no point fighting
Nice attitude Chris. Talk about generalisation. And low blows about the war. This website is meant for people to share views about travel and to get help along the way. So for you to come back with a response such as this is a little childish. You didn't give enough information for us to help you and then you threw a tantrum.
Shame on you!!!
my post my be full of low blows but none of it is a lie
Dee1979 if you look at the other posts i was told she would smack me so am not gonna take it lying down,as for being childish???? i think am not having fort for queen and country in war time.
Very childish, let it go.
I'm sure it was meant in a joking way beacuse of your tantrum like post!
i never put enough information on here to start,Am sorry to all who i offended.even you Dee1979
Everyone is honestly trying to help you, Chris. But to revert to blatant generalizations when you hear something you don't like... that's not in the spirit of TP. You can disagree or feel offended or try to clear up misconceptions, but how would you like it if someone equated you to everything "bad" about where you come from? It's not nice and not fair. And it's completely besides the point.
I agree with Dee - CupCake is very tongue-in-cheek and witty and you didn't take the time to see where she was coming from. She's racked up a lot of posts and helped a lot of people. She was just trying to help you, too.
Now that the air has been cleared...
I see by your profile that you are a postman.
1) Are you looking to stay in that type of work?
2) Do you have any college course work in a particular area?
3) Is there a specific part of the US that you are most interested in?
4) Are you in school now and interested in an exchange program w/host family?
5) Other work experience?
The answers to these, and questions like these, will help us to help you. Honestly, that's all we were asking for, so maybe these questions will help clarify things for you and for us. At least it will be a start...
(ps: We do have a history - just not as extensive as in other places in the world. But, that's okay too. It's a great big universe.)
No offense taken Chris.
I am just defending Americans, I am not one but have many american friends and hate to see them getting verbally bashed. This is not a political website so we tend to leave all that out here.
I can try and help you with any queries you have. Throw the information at me. I have tried to get work in the states before and have applied for my greencard and look at all the routes, visa types etc. So if you need help be more specific and I promise you will get straight forward helpful answers.
