American mum in Germany explains why she'd never return to US
An American woman who moved across the Atlantic for work has revealed all the things she finds bizarre about the UK.
Miriam Giraffe moved from Vancouver, Washington on the west coast of the United States to London in 2021.
She had previously studied abroad in the UK but is now living here permanently after getting a job.
In a series of TikTok videos, Giraffe has documented all the things that have surprised her about the British way of life.
One clip has been viewed 217,000 times and she explained that Brits using, “you alright?”, as a greeting still throws her off, as she thinks they’re saying she looks ill.
She also said that having to hail a bus to make it stop for you was new to her. After having multiple buses drive past her at the bus stop, she only learned you had to hail it after seeing someone else do it.
