For someone who has always driven on the right side of the road, is it hard to get used to driving on the left side of the road? I'm very nervous... usually when I travel to somewhere that drives on the left side of the road, I use public transportation. But I might try it.... I'm just nervous.
Ok, thanks for the advice. I've always ridden when I'm in countries that drive on the left side of the road. But next time I wanted to actually drive; I just wasn't sure if it was hard to get used to.
I think I've driven in those before. We have a few of those in the US but we call them "roundabouts."
LoL, funny story! Before that happened, did you know that "fag" was a very derogatory term in the US? Most Americans don't know the meaning of that word in the UK (I only know the meaning because I've spent a great amount of time in internet forums... which is actually why I write in internet forums. I like interacting with people from other places).
I have a similar story - although mine isn't as good as yours. An English girl once asked me if I wanted to see her "pussy." This was a few years back, but I remember being a disappointed teenager when I found out that she meant cat. That term is used completely different here.
Ahh... okay. I just assumed that since she was English, that term was specifically used there to mean "cat." She was just pulling my leg (or plonker).
Well, if you drive in a car made for left-driving, it goes better. But once you get used to it it gets better alright.
