They actually spell better than we do, a more proper spelling anyway. For instance they would spell color, colour. I know that they speak English better than we do. Anyone can suck at spelling. Einstein was a horrible speller.

Yes they do speak very well, just the other day I was in H&M on 5th Avenue and a lady from the UK ask a girl if she was "Queuing the line" and the girl turned around and said "what?" and the lady said it again "Are you queuing" and I started laughing and I told the girl "she meant, are you on line?" the girl looked at me and said "oh yea lol" It was so cute.

You are so right they are so proper and well manner. They use all their manner's at all time. I meet and see them all the time here in florida. Beacuse they are always asking for direction. The accent is ver cute on the kids and ladies.

But american people are rude loud and OMG!!! just a damn waste.

British and American English are variations of the same language (read: slightly different from one another). It's not that one of us spells or speaks better (or worse) than the other, we are both speaking our respective versions of the language very well thank you ;-)

Well they might be rude to other british people. But to us american's they talk quite nice. Sometimes I can't help but laugh when the little kids speak.

The only differents is I think american white dress better then european white. I also think american white's look better then european white's same for the blacks.

I can't speak for "all" British people of course, but I've had run ins with at least two of them who were very rude.

The first was a white girl who was a tomboy and I use to work with her. She was from Birmingham, England I think or one of the outlying English towns. We almost ended up fighting because she was unhappy with something I did and she came up into my face pointing her finger and I was like I'm not having it. She was the rudest white girl I had ever been around.

The second was a white guy who sold me my home here in Memphis. I asked him would he leave the birdcage and he was like "No. I already left the fridge and stove, I'm not leaving the birdcage too".

He seemed so racist and rude. He was from London, England and he seemed to have a problem with a young, single black woman being able to afford his home that him and his wife was obviously having trouble keeping.

I don't think he was working and he was most likely living off his wife. My realtor told me that they were facing foreclosure and wanted a quick sale.
