Undertaking, USA style
I’ve mentioned before how I love driving on the roads in the USA because they are [mostly] big and open and it takes less time to get to places than it does in the UK, because of all our stop-start-traffic-lights-smaller-roads-congestion-road-works etc.
However…I get totally infuriated with undertaking! So much so that I even wrote a song about it (sad but true).
I is only a matter of time before I completely lose it with drivers in America who keep speeding up to undertake in the inside lane when I indicate to pull over. Oh, come on white lady in your 50s who was today’s undertaking queen, you’re better than that surely!
My British reserve and passive aggressive head shaking don’t past muster anymore on the American roads. But today, the British V sign worked wonders, and I don’t care if it got interpreted as a victory sign, because today I did win that inside lane battle.
Thou shalt not undertake a Brit. Be warned, Americanas 😉 – I can swear like a British sailor, don’t ya know!
British slang t-shirt
I love this t-shirt. I would like one, please (hint, hint, it’s nearly the UK Desperate Housewife’s [ahem] 40th birthday!).
You can find all the explanations for those words here 🙂
