Another cultural difference

My whole life, I've been making decisions. I see a situation, and I decide what I'm going to do.

In the UK, people take decisions. This seems a bit passive to me. It sounds like someone puts thing in front of them and then they pick one up and run with it. It sounds like, ultimately, the responsibility isn't all yours....it is also the responsibility of the person who gave you your choices.

I believe I will continue to make mine. It feels more independent.

"Taking" decisions is for a people who's greatest empire is past, the kind of people who like soccer and call it "football."

You go on MAKING decisions. It's far more powerful.
