Fun facts about English (British)

The British are well-known for their ability to form an orderly queue which may be why the British phrase 'patience is a virtue' is well-known!

Common slang includes 'to feel gutted' (meaning to be devastated), 'to faff around' (to waste time doing little) and 'to whinge' (to complain in a whining way).

Unlike American English, British English uses the word 'pissed' to mean drunk (not angry), 'pants' to mean underpants (not trousers) and the storage compartment of a car is the 'boot' (not trunk).
