15 Things To Know If You're Moving From Britain To The USA

Or in other words, moving "across the pond"

Posted on

1. Get ready to be asked to say something in a "British accent"

Which British accent do you want me to speak in? Welsh...Cornish...I do a good Scouse accent?

2. LACK OF TEA

HAVE FUN SPENDING $8 FOR A SMALL BOX OF ACTUALLY GOOD TEA

3. So. Many. Damn. Adverts.

They come on every 5 minutes! You'll find yourself questioning, 'Who buys this medicine if one of the side affects is "may cause death"?'

4. PIZZA

It depends where you go... but pizzerias are everywhere and the pizza is 10x better than it is in Britain

5. You'll know more about US politics...

...but it's not like you can vote for anything

6. People here think that The Jonas brothers were the first to sing "Year 3000"...

THEY'VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF BUSTED!

7. Say goodbye to reality programmes like "Im a Celeb" or "Come dine with me"

I miss Ant and Dec :(

8. Say hello to new reality programmes like "survivor" or literally anything to do with cooking

So much drama

9. "omg say _______"

Aluminium, Vitamin, Schedule, Garage, Herb... i even got "say table!" once

10. "Wait, you don't have an Independence day?"

That's because we've always been Independent...

11. They don't sell Freddos here so you don't need to worry about that anymore...

Just leave it in the past...

12. People will think you're from London no matter how many times you say otherwise

"So when you lived in London..."

"I lived 4 hours away from London"

".....So when you lived in London-"

13. You'll eat Mexican food instead of curry

Chipotles... Chipotles everywhere...

14. When you watch Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone they say Sorcerers instead of Philosophers???

IT'S JUST NOT RIGHT

15. No one understands "cheeky nandos"

That's not really a surprise though
