To be fair, your taps *are* terrible.
there is definitely a special skill required to use the hot tap before it gets too hot for human skin
because being able to briefly stick my hand out the window before i go out to see if it’s raining and gauge the temperature is more valuable to me than stopping the odd bug getting in during the very rare periods where it’s warm enough to warrant the window being left open for a long period of time, which aren’t all that common! and like, we don’t have mosquitos or anything, just silly moths
tbh we’re more concerned about heat escaping most of the year round to bother about opening windows at all
do people forget which country they’re in if they don’t see one every couple of minutes lmao
the only times i would ever see so many flags at one time would be if it’s the world cup (st georges), a jubilee or a royal wedding, or eurovision maybe (union) lol
flags at any other time just give off BNP racist vibes
thebreakfastghoul replied to your post:*British blogger voice* I CAN’T BELIEVE AMERICANS DON’T HAVE TREES OR AIR OR FOOD OR NOUNS —— can you explain this? I’m neither from america nor uk so I’m kind of lostI’m from the US and we do sign with “xxx” sometimes, but it’s more often “xoxoxo.” I think it’s less common than it used to be but it is done! I’ve never seen it in a text though.
i used to do an exaggerated amount of xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox on cards to family members when i was little, like hugs and kisses, but now if i do it, which is rare, i only do it over social media, like… ironically or after i’ve poked fun at someone.
a single x at the end of messages is like common courtesy, and three if you’re really close to the recipient.
it’s not just britain/US lbr, everyone has moments of ‘WAIT YOU DON’T HAVE THIS THING WHICH WE HAVE? EXPLAIN. THIS MAKES NO LOGICAL SENSE’, but the OP is picking on specifically people from britain
lol canadian tumblr user oodlyenough has lectured me about ‘screens’ on windows and why britain is insane for not having them on many occasions. and our taps are terrible too, apparently lmao
whereas like, just today i discovered to my disbelief that people over there don’t sign texts and birthday cards with ‘xxx’, when i thought it was a global tradition
