Floor

 The street-level floor is called the
 ground floor or the first floor. In North
 America, a traditional superstition is
 that the number 13 is unlucky. For
 this reason, some buildings,
 especially older ones, do not have a
 thirteenth floor.
Refrigerator

 The refrigerator door often serves as
 a family posting area for important
 memos, schedules, reminders of
 appointments, “to do” lists of
 household chores, and shopping lists.
 It also often serves as a gallery of
 family photographs and children’s
 artwork. These items are often held to
 the refrigerator door by decorative
 magnets.
Bedding
 A bed generally consists of a box spring
 and a mattress, which are usually raised
 above the floor on a frame. Bed linen
 consists of sheets and pillowcases. When
 making a bed, a fitted sheet is put on first.
 It has corners sewn with elastic to keep the
 sheet tightly attached to the mattress. This
 is followed by a flat sheet, which does not
 have elastic and is usually tucked under
 the mattress at the foot. Over this, a
 blanket and sometimes a comforter or
 bedspread are added.
Dry cleaners

 A dry cleaners is a business that
 cleans clothing and items made of
 fabric with chemicals instead of water.
 Some dry cleaners may provide other
 services such as making alterations
 and ironing. Laundromats are places
 where you pay money to wash and
 dry your clothes in machines.
Company Benefits
 Benefits are provided by an employer as part of a
 job. They include programs that protect the health
 and well-being of the employee’s family, such as
 health insurance, life insurance, and childcare
 services. Benefits may also include paid time off
 for vacations, holidays, and illness. Some benefit
 plans offer family or parental leave, a period of
 paid time off after the birth of a child, following an
 adoption or foster care placement, or in the case
 of a family member becoming seriously ill or
 injured. Generally, money is deducted from each
 paycheck to cover part of the cost of these
 programs.
Smoke detector
 An electronic machines that make a loud noise to
 alert people when there is smoke in a building.
 Many state and local laws require all residential
 buildings to have smoke detectors. Smoke
 detectors should be located on the ceiling, ideally
 in a hallway near the bedrooms. Because cooking
 smoke can set off smoke detectors, they should
 not be placed in the kitchen. It is important to test
 the smoke detector batteries once a month and
 replace them once a year. Smoke detectors are
 inexpensive, usually about $10, and are available
 in most home improvement stores.
Co-payment
 Co-payment: A payment made by an individual
 who has health insurance, usually at the time a
 service is received, to offset some of the cost of
 care. Co-payments are a common feature of HMO
 (Health Maintenance Organization) and PPO
 (Preferred Provider Organization) health plans in
 the US. Co-payment size may vary depending on
 the service, generally with low copayments
 required for visits to a regular medical provider
 and higher payments for services received in the
 emergency room, the latter intended to discourage
 insured persons from using the emergency room
 unless it is absolutely necessary. Also called co-
 insurance.
Dress code
 Smart casual means dress casual or
 nice casual clothing, not jeans and a
 T-shirt. Smart is a common adjective
 used in the U.K. to describe
 someone’s appearance or dress. In
 the U.S., people would use the words
 nice, great, or stylish
 a decoration or work of art which has
 many parts that move freely in the air,
 for example hanging from threads
Being a guest
 When invited to someone’s house for diner, it is
 customary in the U.S. to bring something. If
 you’re not sure what to bring, it is perfectly
 acceptable to ask the host. However, the host
 will probably tell you not to bring anything. In that
 case, you decide whether you still want to bring
 something small, like chocolates or candies for
 after dinner. Traditional sweets from your own
 country would be a nice gesture.
 Also, in the U.S., people usually arrive about 15
 minutes after the stated invite time, but not
 earlier. In the U.K., people tend to arrive only a
 few minutes after the invite time. And in either
 country if the invitation says sharp, e.g., 8 o’clock
 sharp, that means you must be there right on
 time at 8.
Baby shower
Traditionally, a baby shower is held only for the
mother-to-be, and only women attend. The
original intent was for women to share wisdom
and lessons on the art of becoming a mother.
Many people choose to have baby showers for
both parents, and some people have a men-only
shower. In Jewish tradition and Ethiopian tradition,
a celebration and gift reception is held only after
the birth of a child.
Traditionally, baby showers were given only for
the family's first child, but over time, it has
become more common to hold them for
subsequent or adopted children.[citation needed]
Even when a shower is held for only the first child,
it is not uncommon for a parent to have more than
one baby shower, such as one with friends and
another with co-workers.
Wedding

 Throwing rice used to be customary
 at weddings in the U.S., but it is
 dangerous to birds, so most people
 nowadays throw rose petals or rice
 paper confetti that is biodegradable
 ( can break down naturally and wont’
 harm the environment)
Seller Financing
  is a loan provided by the seller of a property
  or business to the purchaser. Usually, the
  purchaser will make some sort of down
  payment to the seller, and then make
  installment payments (usually on a monthly
  basis) over a specified time, at an agreed-
  upon interest rate, until the loan is fully repaid.
  There are no universal requirements
  mandated for seller financing. In order to
  protect both the buyer's and seller's interests,
  a legally-binding Purchase Agreement should
  be drawn up with the assistance of an
  attorney and then signed by both parties.
Number 13

 The street-level floor is called the
 ground floor or the first floor. In North
 America, a traditional superstition is
 that the number 13 is unlucky. For
 this reason, some buildings,
 especially older ones, do not have a
 thirteenth floor.
Sales tax
 In the United States and Canada, a sales
 tax is added to the price of most products,
 although essential items such as food and
 clothing are sometimes exempt. The sales
 tax is not included in the advertised price of
 goods, and it is paid at the time of
 purchase. This tax varies by state or
 province and ranges from 5 to 8 percent of
 the purchase price. For example, with a 5
 percent sales tax, the final price of a $9.99
 item is $10.49.
A rain check
 Rain check began as a baseball term. If a game
 was cancelled because of bad weather, fans could
 use rain checks to attend a subsequent game.
 This term is now commonly used in stores. If an
 item is advertised at a sale price but is sold out or
 is not available, customers can ask for a rain
 check. When the item becomes available,
 customers with a rain check can buy the item at
 the sale price, even if it is no longer on sale. The
 term is also used idiomatically to mean that you
 can’t accept an invitation right now but would like
 to accept it later. For example, if someone invites
 you to an event you can say I’m sorry, but I’m busy
 tomorrow. Can I take a rain check?
