Default 10 Questions Every British Expat will be asked by Americans

Saw this article on the BBC website today about 10 questions every brit gets asked by Americans..... some of these definitely rang bells!

  1. Do you know the Queen?
  2. Are you Australian? (I get this ALL the time, even in Australia weirdly...)
  3. My great uncle’s priest moved to Manchester in ‘95 – do you know him?
  4. What’s it like living under socialism? (especially near an election!!)
  5. Can you repeat that please?
  6. Why’s there an X at the end of your email?
  7. Are you here on vacation?
  8. So, do you like it here more than the U.K.?
  9. What do you miss most from home?
  10. Is England near Europe? (Yep, got this one from a visit to the local Girl Scout group one visit!)
In my own experience i'll also add "Can you record my voicemail" (actually, my voice is the message on several of my US colleagues machines) and "does it really always rain"

Anyone got any more to add?
