I know I’m pushing the boundary of when I can get this post submitted, but really, isn’t that the Spanish way? Work culture here is slightly (very) different from in the US. In Spain, there isn’t as much of a rush to get things done, and workers can take their time. As much of their time as they need. In the US, there are very strict due dates and deadlines…not so much here. Projects for work are, oftentimes, finished when they are finished. If something isn’t done right at the deadline, workers can frequently spend another day or so to finish their assignment. Also, there are two hour lunch breaks that start at 2 pm. Spain likes to lunch.
