Top Ten Strange Things British People Say and Do

Britgirl
My comments towards our American friends has been brought into question, so...it's only fair that I balance things out by naming some very odd things the Brits do and say. Many of which would laugh at this list. But then we know how to laugh at ourselves ;P

The Top Ten

1 Saying "b*****ks means something is bad but saying "the dog's b*****ks" means something is outrageously good

Oh, Toto... I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.

Oh poop. V, I'm never trying subtly again! You saw right through my sledgehammer approach to find out what you look like. You are a gentleman of great mystery - at least I know that much :). - Britgirl

2 Apologise to someone who has crushed our feet under their shopping trolley

I guess nobody actually means it. - Martinglez

3 Drink piping hot tea on the hottest days of the year V 1 Comment
4 Putting chips (fries) between two buttered pieces of bread and calling it a "chip sarnie"
5 Putting an expensive car on the driveway and storing junk in the garage

Oh, seriously. You haven't seen the U.S. suburbs. A car is the last thing you'd find in a garage, single or double.

I'm coming to meet you, V. (I need to see what you store in your garage) Knowing you it would be something quite unexpected :). - Britgirl

6 Wear a school uniform

I wasn't referring to adults (well, maybe some...) - Britgirl
