The UK and the USA may share a language (mostly) in common, but when it comes to a number of cultural customs, the Atlantic Ocean seems like the smallest thing separating them.

Whether it's their unique accent that somehow carries over into their typing, their obsession with tea, or the fact that they put baked beans on their toast, Brits certainly have a way of making those of us on the Western side of the world scratch our heads with confusion. That's not to say that Americans don't have quirks of their own, but here at Bored Panda, we think Great Britain deserves some special recognition this time around.

Check out the top British moments that left Americans completely stumped below, and be sure to vote for the ones that you're still trying to understand as well.

Actually quite useful: "biweekly" is confusing as some may consider that as twice a week or every 2 weeks. "Fortnightly" can only mean once every 2 weeks.

Possibly because we invented the things. And they have black and white stripes. We also have a series of other tenuously animal themed crossings like the Pelicon (pedestrian light control), Toucan (combined pedestrian and cycle path crossing), Pegasus (bridleway crossing with a high level request button), etc etc...

Not just zebras, but a menagerie of traffic light crossings. First up was the Pelican (technically PELICON - Pedestrian Light Controlled), then came the Puffin (Pedestrian User Friendly - the red/green men are on the button panel so you're looking towards oncoming traffic and can check it's stopped before crossing, while sensors will only change the lights if there's someone waiting, and if so will wait until they've crossed before changing back). We also have the Toucan (Two Can - pedestrians and cyclists) and Pegasus (no acronym here, just a way of keeping the flying creature theme for pedestrians + mounted horse riders, complete with high level controls).

Actually all over Europe it's pretty common to have your washing machine in the kitchen. If the bathroom is too small and there is no extra room, where else would you put it? Also in some apartments the water/drain pipes for washing machines are installed in the kitchen only, so you really have no other choice.
