Getting the check when you need the bill

I could go on and on. I work with Americans and have for years, and I always have to click into Americaneese when talking to them or I just get rabbit in the headlight looks.

Muffler is a scarf.
Comforter is a blanket.
Sneakers are runners.

They work all hours and days and get two weeks off if lucky.

There are many religions and none that home school. Some countries cannot wait to get their kids out of their hair. But guns might be an issue for sure in American Schools as we have seen.

Silverware. Witnessed American asking for some recently. Cue utterly baffled look until someone else intervened and told the waitress the yank was asking for cutlery. The American in question looked like they thought everyone around was like, so stupid like, cos who doesn't know what suhlverwurr is.

Nodding his head no, instead of shook his head.

Drug instead of dragged.

I need to speak with Stephen King to see if we can have a bit bigger dome next time; over the whole country!

I’m in a march 2021 due date page on Facebook, it’s 99% Americans, the names they're coming up with Is one of the biggest collection of cringe, disbelief, despair, hilarity and disgraceful.

Especially when they butcher Irish names, oh and cause it’s a march due date page, theyre all talking about ‘St Patty’s day’. I swear it makes me want to scream!
