..British quirks i've noticed so far..
So I forgot to post this as I was living in England...might as well post it now before i forget these English-isms..
- The standard greeting is 'You awright?' instead of "Hey, How's it going?"
- Gas here is now £1.11/L (thats ~$2.22/L); i don't even want to remember how much we spent to fill our gas tank
- At work, its customary to ask everyone around you if they want tea and then you make as many as people said 'Yes'.... But I dont do this b/c I don't make tea very well.
- London (and combination of the Tube) is quite dirty..90% of the time when I come home from work and blow my nose, it's black-ish.
- The Tube (Bakerloo line at Piccadilly Circus) is freaking HOT in the afternoon and people packed like sardines...yes, this means some serious BO floating around.
- London is a super place to act as a jump-off point to other cities around Europe. Budget carriers like Ryanair or Easyjet fly out of the smaller airports (Luton, Stansted, Heathwick) and give very good deals...that we haven't been able to get since we travel peak-time (weekend).
- Chemist = Pharmacist; Surgery = Doctor's Office; Boot = car trunk; Queue = lineup; Brolly = umbrella; Lorry = truck; Jumper = sweater
- Roundabouts are way better than 4-way stops; keeps the traffic flow moving much better and funner(?) to drive!
