See that's where you are going wrong. You'll never make friends if you go around using words like that mate

And god forbid, I say "pudding", "lift" or "bollocks to you wankers, I'm going to go and get the post" (that one always confuses them, but the beauty is that I can still get away with saying it).

Dunno about the rest of the country but here in Noo Yawk and it's 'burbs there's a definite "keep right" rule which most people follow. I love it, and it really annoys me now when I go back to London where people meander.

Wow, I didn't think that the general Texan bought vehicles that small!

A base F-150 is nearly 2.5 tons with just fuel etc on-board

Its the surprise that there is a sidewalk, they are all used to following the wiggly line that forms between rough road edge and muddy fringe between road and the manicured lawn.
