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..

Sorry guys I woke up in a bad mood.
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.
