Microsoft Advisory for US Citizens on Life in UK and The extraordinary instructions in 44-page guide

But that hasn't stopped Microsoft drawing up a new 44-page guide to Britain for its U.S. staff to ensure they can adapt to life in this country.

The handbook covers everything from helpful reminders to leave firearms at home and what time to eat breakfast to definitions of fish and chips and how to navigate your way round Argos.

Called A Guide to Working and Living in Cambridge, it has been issued to staff who are relocating to the computer giant's new European research HQ in the city.And there is even a section on shopping in Cambridge and a series of paragraphs explaining how to navigate your way round Argos.

The guide explains Argos is: 'A popular and useful warehouse shop in which you can browse a thick catalogue of very wide ranging products.'
