We don’t completely get this one. Why turn small day-to-day chors into a hectic rat race? You leave the house with an errand list and feel as if you are out on your daily marathon.
Relax, choose one errand to do, and the rest, my friend, will wait for tomorrow.
Where Are You From?
This is a question we hope someone can shed some light on, and give us an answer. The entire conversation can turn in a completely different way, all depending on the answer.
Am I from the United stated, or, am I from the upper east side? On second thought... Does it really matter?
We always thought that in the UK, a place that sells beers and other liquid refreshments is called a pub, and in the US it is simply called a bar. Well, do we have news for you!
In the US, a bar is not equivalent to a pub. However, a dive bar is more like a pub, which is considered a rustic-style basic small bar. So basically, the Americans don't think much of the UK pub and consider their bar a few levels up.
So, we have done some research, and apparently, over 95% of names listed on the birth certificates and social security number (which is basically the government name) are no different than the name used by the person.
So, keeping the term "Government name" just for the other 5% of people that insist on calling themselves anything but their given name (Princess Margarita, or Jay Z for example), seems like a waste of resources in our opinion.
Such a Tool
Yes, tools are useful but apparently, not all people are. So if you come across an American and they happen to call you a tool, don't be so sure you are receiving a compliment.
It is more likely they think you are useless, not the sharpest (tool in the shed), and basically, can't be of any value at the moment.
