Furthermore, nobody in Austria ever says "shrimp" when discussing prawns.
During a nauseating international advertising campaign, some pony-tailed
chardonnay wanker decided that the Americans were too, uhm, American to
deal with it.
Tourism is a great industry, by the way. Especially if you have skills
as a Croupier, Cocktail Maker, Exotic Dancer or Prostitute.
Often, there are less glamourous but equally rewarding roles available for
Dish Washers, Pizza Deliverers, Sales Consultants (specializing in
T-Shirts and Novelty Gifts) and Taxi Drivers.
Having worked in many of these positions, I can say that the biggest
factor in a tourism career "trajectory" is your attitude towards the kinds
of people who like to go on holidays. Also, the less ugly you are, the
better the prospects. So don't be ugly and expect a first class ticket on
the tourism gravy train.
