Annoying Americanisms

Recommended Posts

As pointed out by several perspicacious posters in the Donuts thread, this is an American abomination.

Showing their idiosyncratic inconsistency they call their WWI soldiers "doughboys" not "doboys"

When Americans ask for their coffee with cream are they just asking for milk or actual cream? Googled it but just getting people babbling on about half and half whatever the fuck that is.

Creamer is actually half and half over here, which is to say Cream, cut with milk. Cafe au Lait is coffee with milk but that's generally reserved for francophiles and South Louisianans.

I do think the average cup of coffee one purchases whilst out somewhere over here is just watered down trash though.

All the midwives we had for our birth were fantastic so it's petty of me to moan about this but I bristled every time one kept on saying "good job" and the far worse "you got this". And she said it a lot

Deep breath...

 

”Guys”

 

”Can I get...?”

 

”I’m good”

 

”Gotten”


“Movie”

 

“Speak on”

 

“Take-out”

 

“My bad”

 

“Regular” (portion size)

 

“Period”

 

“Season” for a TV series. This annoys me all the more because I use it myself. 


“I could care less” which is the worst ever!!! If you could care less, then you do care, dickhead!!!

"Can I get...?" should be punishable by flogging. Sadly, it seems to be the norm in central Scotland, but not with my kids, oh no.

‘Passed’ for died. Just say it, it won’t kill you

How did I miss that one? I fucking despise that phrase. Sanitised, anodyne shite.
