Sorry guys I woke up in a bad mood.
Nothing wrong with the word "mum'. Or 'wanker'. How is 'mum' any more stupid than 'mom'?

It's all about accents too. I am married to an American and when he says 'pen' it always sounds like 'pin' to me.

To an American 'Tippex' sounds like 'Tampax' apparently, from prior experience.
So, in a nutshell, don't get yourself all fired up over words...if you are that stressed by small issues like that you're heading for a heart attack.

Better not visit Scotland then if you dislike "stupid words". Nothing personal but I hate the way Americans say 'aluminium' - you don't pronounce this i = aluminium AND 'math' instead of 'maths'.

I get like Carrie's mum, Margaret White, and say "SAY it!" to myself whenever I hear that (how she did when she tried to get Carrie to say "Eve was weak" and "the first sin was intercourse" after Carrie got her period).

If he's a guest at an event, does that make it a double negative?

Sorry guys I woke up in a bad mood.
that is so old.. you need some more cultural diffusion. i did find a couple words weird though.. "tram" and "pushchair".. i've heard tram before but pushchair? thats new to me..

on a side note, i love british film and "wanker" doesn't bother me at all.. you of all people should know Americans have way worse words. oops, i mean we have hella worse words.



SWAG!

I've never heard of Tippex before.. maybe the person(s) misheard you and thought it'd be funny to ask if you said Tampax..

Bonnet = hood.
Boot = trunk.
Lift = elevator.
Pavement = sidewalk.
You see the differences in nuances but they mean the same thing but I wouldn't be ignorant enough to call any of your differences in language stupid.

Tippex is what you guys know as 'white out'. For erasing written words on paper when you've made a mistake. In these days of computers we don't usually write stuff out on paper much anymore.

Poor baby has no mother! The milk makes it seem more macabre. I hope the little one makes a full recovery.
