Default Re: Annoying Americanisms? A rebuttal

Number 6 - to 'wait on'. A lot of my family (the northern lot) use that, so I tend to as well. 'I'm waiting on the dentist to call me back', for example.

Number 24 - 'my bad'. I must say that I really don't like that, but that's a personal thing, and I didn't think it was an Americanism, just annoying!

Gil - I love your postcode!
