Guys, it's really alarming.

2. American breadsticks being like small baguettes instead of crunchy, slim things.

3. The way TV show timings are displayed as stuff like "8/7c".

What does it really mean though?

4. The lack of electric kettles everywhere.

5. That playing sport in high school is a Big Deal, and can even get you uni scholarships.

6. And that college-level sports have such a big fanbase.

7. The massive gaps in public bathroom stalls.

8. High school graduations in general.

9. All biscuits being called cookies.

10. And scones being called biscuits, and eaten with a white gravy.

11. Washing machines having their own room.

12. Tax not being included in prices.

13. The order of dates by month, day, year.
