10 things Americans hate about Brits
Read through the comments in response to this and people are a bit angry about it, offended even. Me? I found it quite tongue in cheek to be honest
and it gave me a giggle - some of it is quite true to some extent, but it's hardly terribly insulting stuff, what, what.
Just thought I'd share it and see what others' think. Anything to add? There must be worse things about us Brits than drinking tea, being rude,
offensive toilet humo(u)r and odd food, surely? Bloody hell, mate!
Is the divide between the UK and our American allies growing wider? Serious question, I've noticed a lot of mud slinging from both sides on ATS of
late - I think this is quite humoro(u)s but I still have to question the motivation behind writing such a piece and it being forced onto my news feed
as a "suggested post".
If I was angry enough I'd write a 10 things we Brits hate about the Americans but I can only think of 2. The first is the fact that we're more similar
than we care to admit and the second is that we're not as different as we like to pretend we are...so only 1 thing, really.
Oh, and color's got a bloody u in is!
All i the name of fun - to the Americans, what's not on the list that should be?
To the Brits, what would you put in the list of 10 things about the Americans that the British hate? I've not given it much thought. Don't be mean or
catty, it's just a bit of banter.
I disagree with the food thing, it doesn't apply any more. I can go into town and eat any type of food I care to purchase, from pizza to subway,
burger king to kfc, it's all here, you get the same food anywhere in the world nowadays. But traditional dishes like roast beef and yorkshire pudding,
bangers and mash - I love em, I love shoveling spoonfuls of mash between my crooked, uneven teeth. I agree with the tea thing, it's not as common as
it once was but yes, it's horrible, give me a coffee any day.
If I were to write 10 things I hate about America - one of them would most definitely be the fact that center is spelled centre and colour HAS A
BLOODY U IN IT!!. These were the things that made writing HTML and coding in general a li'l bit awkward i the beginning.
I bet if there was a list of 10 things the Brits hate about the Americans - one of the things on there would be their love of guns, but I'm staying
out of that one. Truth is I don't hate America nor do I resent articles like this as much as many of those who commented seem to. I think we have one
of those relationships where we can poke fun at one another but in the end we're still bloody good mates! Or am I wrong?
