    Part Time Americans

    I have a loathing for like, these people who like, inappropriately use the word like or refer to their arse as an 'ass'. YOU ARE NOT AMERICAN. Whats next ? Sidewalks, trash and trunks ?

    Unless we stop importing American Culture, Americanisms will just get worse

    just read BG1's posts, hes in america and follows suit ^^^^^

    and i have always said the above errors come from american kids which are then picked up by british adults even, from gaming and the like.

    the sad part is british adults making use of such poor grammar

    well i still likes ya

    Oh yes, In my town I was in an "exotic" pet shop one day & the more than irish guy told the customer that in the wild the animal he was enquiring about - "ate out of trash cans". nearly pi$$ed myself on the spot.

    I wish I were in the American Office. I could change the way I talk to be in that show.

    I hate the over-use of the word like. :whistling:

    i seriously believe some people are just not smart enough to understand that the OP and their over use of the word 'like' was intentional

    my pet hate (assume it's an americanism) is 'hun'

    God forbid a language changed. :whistling:

    I for one am disappointed that all these so called english people don't speak like Shakespeare. Ruining this country I tell thee.

    I LOVE AMERICA and dream one day to live there :thumbsup:

    It's all over the place - especially with their food brands...

    McDonalds
    Burger King
    Quiznos
    Krispy Kreme
    Pizza Hut
    Dominos
    Papa Jos
    Ben & Jerrys

    strong rage

    Americanisms are not the issue.... what really gets on me nerves is that 'Aussie habit' of going up at the end of a sentence, so everything even a statement sounds like a ruddy question drives me up the wall!

    I hate anything that is different and I don't quite understand because I'm so insecure.
