@masterkfox had some really good additions to us vs england culture stuff
as an american who studied for five months in England: Pants/Trousers, state religion vs “freedom” of religion, Articulated Lorry, “it’s pissing out”. I’ll let you know if I think of more.
multiple flavors of british accents and the names for them all, how the UK is *not* part of Europe Thank You Very Much, Eurovision, the spelling of “tyre” and related absurdities, americans really are loud (our base volume is just naturally higher), british food really is terrible and they’ve never heard of salt, their entire country fits inside my state and they have no sense of how tiny they are or how big the US is
I FORGOT ABOUT LORRY and i told sam we call it a “semi” and they just lost their shit for ages like no thats a boner and i was just like the fuck kind of word is LORRY
pants vs trousers i still havent adjusted to and YEAH ALL THE DIFFERENT ACCENTS I DIDNT EVEN KNOW!!!! when we started dating one of my friends who watches a ton of BBC was like “what kind of accent” and i was like oh god i dont know was i supposed to know before i got involved what kind of girlfriend am i LMFAO
also all y’alls comments have been great + sweet!!!!!
