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.

Due to the common market trade agreements, there was something of a campaign a while back for food terminology in Europe: They basically wanted all British chocolate renaming as chocolate candy because it wasn't pure enough by their standards (too much milk fat and sugar, not enough cocoa).

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.

E Menendez

In the US we usually have a separate room if we can for our washer and dryer, or it is in a closet-type enclosure or the basement or the garage. Not the kitchen. That actually will devalue a property. I understand though as a lot of places in Europe are older and when things were plumbed, it was easier to put in the same location. Older apts and houses in the US can have this on occasion, though it was usually plumbed to the bathroom rather than the kitchen.

Our houses are smaller. My mum's kitchen doesn't have SPACE for the washer, so it goes in her unusually large utility room. I don't *have* a utility, and my bathroom barely has enough space for a person as well as a toilet, sink and small bath with a shower over it, so if I was to go along with a certain snotty celebrity's recent petition that they should be banned from kitchens, I'd have to put all my washing into a big bag, google for the one remaining laundrette within 10 miles, hump it down two flights of stairs to the car, drive there, pile a ludicrous number of coins into a machine of uncertain performance, then either spend 2-3 hours sat there killing time until it finished, or go run other errands trusting that no-one is going to interrupt the cycle and steal my shit. Or I could put it in the only other room besides the bathroom that has water and high current power circuits provided. Which is after all why it ended up appearing there in the first place, and indeed why it was

You have to take into account the building regulations too. In some areas of the UK it's illegal to have electrical sockets in the bathroom. So you're limited by where you can put such things. Add to that the tradition that laundry was always done in the kitchen. Back before plumbing, the kitchen was where the fire was, and where the heat was. So laundry was done there too. When washing machines came in, they were automatically installed in the kitchen. It is slowly going out as new homes are built and expectations change, but when it's the way you've always done it and it works, why would you bother?

Thank you, Kayla, for your comment. When you don't own a house or an apartment where you are free to change things around, you do your best with what you have. Housing standards in Europe are not as high as in the States. In Switzerland, especially where I live near the Lake Geneva, renting apartments are expensive that it's hard to find decent lodging; let a lone one with separate laundry facilities. You're just glad to have an apartment that doesn't cost you half of one month's salary.

I stayed with my Aunt in England and a friend in London. Both had their washing machines in the kitchen. My friend lived in a basement flat, so no garage to put it in. Not sure why my Aunt's was in the kitchen, I never really checked out her garage. What do people in apartments in the US do with theirs? I can't imagine apartments having a big enough bathroom for a washing machine. In NZ we generally have a separate room for them, usually just inside the door to the back garden and the washing line.

Lots of homes in America do this as well. I moved my washer and dryer out of our kitchen and into the hall which makes more since as that is where are the bedrooms are located, making it less of a walk to put away clothing.

I have my washing machine in a separate storage room, but my tumble dryer is in the kitchen as there wasn't enough space in the storage room... so we fit the tumble dryer into the built-in slot that was actually meant for a dishwasher (which we don't have). That being said, I would love to re-do our bathroom, get rid of the bath tub and replace it with a shower + space for washer and dryer. But anyway, what I actually wanted to say is that washing machines in the kitchen are not a Belgian thing either, as far as I'm aware.

My grandfather built a back house on his property in the 1940's and I lived in it for 18 months a few years ago. The kitchen was big with a breakfast nook.

Mh, no sorry. Not all over Europe it's pretty common. The cheap housing structure in Britain is rather unique, in other parts of Europe you used to have laundry rooms. This is where the clothes washing would happen, not in the kitchen. British bathrooms don't have power plugs for some weird stupid reason, this is why they have to put their washing machines in the kitchen or in the garage. ;)

Can't see the kitchen. But it's not uncommon for Americans to put washing machines in a small closet, which, for convenient plumbing, is often just off the kitchen. And I understand that Brits don't have many closets, historically for tax assessment purposes. (Hence, fellow Americans, that's why they use "wardrobes," although I never understood whether they were drobes used during war, or robes used in a ward.) So it makes sense that you'd put it in the kitchen.

Another thing that is only uncommon to americans. Look at some really old photos of american households form the 20's and 30's, it was not infrequent to see the toilet in the kitchen of the homes that had them. all the water in a house was run to one room, so anything that required water was all set up in one room.
