18 Things You Will Miss If You're A Brit In America
America you're an amazing country to live and to visit, but there's some stuff which would make us Brits head for the border immediately.
Why would you miss the U.K.? Well look no further than chocolate. U.S. chocolate really sucks.
Plus we like junk food, but you guys take it too far.
We miss how close everything is. It takes NO TIME to drive from Land's End to John O'Groats.
Want to drive across the US in one go? YOU'D DIE.
And it gets worse. When you travel across the U.S. all you only see this for hours and HOURS...
Fancy a bite to eat on this journey? Bad news. They don't know how to do bacon properly.
The U.S. only does streaky bacon and burns it.
Speaking of food, the British milk-categorising system makes sense. Our milk tastes really good!
So why do you Americans persist on something called 2%? And half-and-half? It's just tastes WRONG.
What else doesn't the U.S. have? A ROAST DINNER nearly every Sunday (not just Thanksgiving).
And don't even start on how Americans do tea. Why? Well if we do we will be here all week.
And what goes well with tea? A newspaper to read. But reading a U.S. newspaper just make us miss our own newspapers at home.
British front pages? Well they can be quite stunning...
...or stunning in what they choose to report.
What else do us Brits miss? BRITISH PLUGS.
American plugs are *shocking*. It's a mission to shove anything in and your voltage is weird.
The U.S. also doesn't have anything as good as Boots.
Seriously, why do U.S. pharmacies sell cigarettes?
Oh and we've also got this.
There's also tax. In the U.K. tax is already added before the till, so if it says it costs £1 IT IS £1.
And then there's the BBC. Even though it's been tainted by recent scandals, you miss it. Nothing matches this public service broadcaster anywhere.
Don't get me wrong... PBS is great, but they have to resort to constant annoying pledge drives :(
We also miss how old everything is. The U.S. boasts that it is has old stuff that really isn't that old.
But Britain has got stuff that is REALLY old.
LIKE REALLY REALLY OLD, GUYS.
AND we don't have political ads every five minutes on television. And they're very heavily regulated.
They end up mostly being dull Party Political Broadcasts that NOBODY WATCHES.
And we don't have the crazy crazy Congress.
We just have totally unelectable lords instead, who all wear really really posh capes.
But what makes a Brit miss home the most? DRINKING. IN A BRITISH PUB. ON A FRIDAY.
