    Also, I thought the word "cheers" meant "salud", but in England they use it all the time, for "thank you", for "good-bye", or "ok" ...
    in Barnsley (Yorkshire), the dialect sounds really "Shakespearian"...
    they will say "I'll kick thine ..." or even "I'll kick thee thine ..."

    difference in spelling English/American :
    Words like : neighbour/neighbor - colour/color - harbour/harbor

    Default How long does it take for a brit girl to wash her hair?

    Hello everybody.

    It is a widely known fact that a girl in the British Isles can use "Sorry, I am washing my hair" rejecting a date.

    But How long does it take for a Brit girl to wash her hair?

    And at last but not least,

    Are American girls allowed to use "washing her hair" as an excuse?

    Thank you,

    American girls are allowed to use whatever excuse they want, of course, but I think that "wash my hair" is just a cliché that isn't actually used these days.

    I was just thinking... isn't it easier to just say "no, thank you"?
