People not from Britain shared the British things that really baffle them – 27 favourites
People not from Britain have been sharing the British things that really baffle them and it’s really rather fabulous.
It all started when Redditor TIGHazard asked this: ‘Non-British people of Reddit, what about Britain baffles you?’
And the answers came pouring in. We’ve read them all – well, quite a lot of them – so you don’t have to and here are our 27 favourites.

‘That everything is pudding.’
‘Apparently British people call sprinkles ‘hundreds and thousands’.’
‘That the only people Ive met that are obsessed with British royalty havent been British.’
‘Why is it standard to have the clothes washer in the kitchen, and why aren’t clothes dryers something everyone owns??’
‘Britain is the only country to perform better during World Wars than in a snowstorm.’
