8 May – Things not to say in London

Posted on Thursday, 8 May, 08. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I think that shortly we here at Becky Goes to London will be publishing a real UK – American dictionary.  I’m not taking about the fact that Vest means T-Shirt and Waistcoat is Vest – but a list of much more worthwhile translations such as:

Blow Out – Do not go into a salon asking for a blow out.  They will look at you with a mixture of confusion and disgust, which deepens when you reply to the question of “excuse me, what?!?” with “A blow out, please”.

If you have an event and would like your hair all shiney and straight, ask for a blow dry.  A blow out is something that may come into play after said event – if it’s one of those affairs.

And never tell them you’re blowing someone off. They’ll think you’re really blowing someone off. Have you figured out what tosser means? It took me a full six months until I became fixated with thinking about the ring toss. Then, it came to me after a few pints.

Tosser I knew – and at this point I thik I will just stear clear of saying anything about blowing – even if speaking about the weather :-).
