When working in the States (cruise ship from Miami around the Caribbean and later New York to Bermuda), I forgot the American term for "fag" meant something completely different from the English term for cigarette. It took me a little while to realize why I kept getting funny looks from my American colleagues whenever I said "I'm just popping out for a fag", or "I'm gasping for a fag". :oops: :lol:

A guy I knew was touring with a rugby club in Canada and one of the Brits asked if they had a fag machine in the pub. He got some very funny looks. :lol:

I was in a shisha cafe in Madrid and there was an American guy in a group including a spaniard and an Argentinian and they were discussing differences between European Spanish and Latin American Spanish citing the example "cojer" which in Spain roughly translates as to take/catch as in cojer el autobus however in Latin America it means (adult concept formal non vulgar language)
Spoiler: show
to fornicate with
and the American guy quite vocally says (paraphrased) "well they're not the same language then, there's nothing like that in the different types of English" as I needed the toilet and had to pass his table anyway I couldn't help going over, leaning on the table and explaining to him that in the Uk it is perfectly normal for someone in a bar to ask "excuse me can I bum a fag?" However if a woman pulled down her pants and showed everyone her fanny, it would be extremely vulgar as opposed to mildly naughty!

With sixty seconds worth of distance run,

And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

We have a bit of a binge drinking problem here in the UK, the city I live in is unrecognisable by midnight :(
