I've had this post in drafts for six months at least now, and I finally took the time to put it in an interesting format and share with it you.
These are my reflections on lines of politeness here in Cambodia, versus those in America. This is definitely NOT an exhaustive list and certainly not an 'absolute truth' kind of list. It's more of what I've noticed or been told as compared to how we do things, politeness wise, in America.
I've tried to break it down into an easily understood chart. You can assume that if there is not a star in one country's column, it is not a common practice and the opposite, you can safely assume, happens all the time. I'll leave it at that!
Anything surprise you?
