9 Questions British People Have About American Things

The Americans and the British may both speak English and become a melting pot of different nationalities but that’s probably where their similarities end.

They talk differently with different accents, and their English language still sounds different from each other. The Americans are led by a President while the British are led by a queen.

But these things don’t bother the British though as much as these American habits.

The British understand a lot of things about the Americans but these 9 habits just baffles them so much.
