It is very well known that the US and the UK are two English speaking countries, but even though the world is shrinking due to TV and the Internet, there is still a huge language difference. Except, unfortunately the word “like” has slipped into every day language, especially among teens and young adults, via American TV shows.
I left the UK almost thirty years ago. I have lived in Europe, the Middle East, Canada and finally America. So now that I have returned, I find myself a stranger in my homeland, well almost . . . some things never change LOL.
Let me say, from now on, I will not go to the bathroom (loo), get in an elevator (lift), open the trunk (boot) or fill my car with gas (petrol).
So long for now or should I say “Cheers.”
