American TikToker: “Can Someone Please Tell Me”. 20 Things Americans Find Odd In Britain

Published 10 months ago

Although British people and Americans share the same language, it’s fairly easy to find the obvious differences between the two. Starting from the vocabulary (is it an elevator, or a lift?) and finishing with cultural differences. Brits won’t simply say, “I’m going to the toilet”, they will say, “I need to wee” or “I’ll go to the loo”, and yes, it has two separate meanings.

American TikToker, who goes by username swfinds, has a dedicated TikTok account to share ‘British only’ things that confuse them living in the UK. TikTok Series starting with “Can someone please tell me”, brought their account an astonishing number of over 2,8M likes.

If you have ever been to the UK, you might recognize some of these ‘confusing’ objects down below. Make sure to leave the explanation to the fellow Americans if you know the purpose of these things!
