17 Things That Make England Hilariously Great

They have street signs that say:
-cat's eyes removed
-elderly people
-mind the gap
-kill your speed
They don't have traffic lights, just roundabouts.
They have a cereal box that advertises ‘tastes great with ice cold milk’ (I thought that was a given).
They think it completely rude to burp in public…as Charlotte found out. Better out than in I always say.
Every village has a fish and chips shop.
They drive extremely small cars.
They all gossip to each other about those ‘Americans in town’.
They all have dial-up internet. Well maybe that’s just my grandparents.
They call cookies ‘biscuits.’
And trucks ‘lorries.’
And baked potatoes ‘jacket potatoes.’
And french fries ‘chips.’
THEIR DRINKING AGE IS 18 (although I might not be 18, I still think it’s right-much better than America)
They have one lane roads for traffic coming both ways.
Everyone drives extremely fast and reckless.
Land Rovers are a sign of status.
They freak out when the weather gets above 20 degrees Celsius (I’ll leave it to you to convert that).

when the cats won't play with me
water going out at home because we waited too long to call the plumber
complaints (like this one)
being in someone's way while watching a movie
causing pain
bagels without cream cheese (what's the point?)
not knowing people I want to know
Knowing people but not talking or hanging out with them
Knowing people but not talking or hanging out with them when I get the chance
bows and arrows I made as a child that never worked
time machines I made that never worked
Mom going into the grocery store for one thing (and taking 20 minutes)
