Obviously, #17 was joking about that stereotype. No need to get mad about a joke. This is suppose to be a site for laughs not people that cant take a joke.

Maybe OP is from somewhere that people drive on the other side of the road. Like Europe or Australia?

I definitely hope it affected her mark and hope she failed her test. I don't want her driving on the road until she's more experienced. Some more practice OP and I'm sure you'll be fine.

#51 Better be an instant disqualification lol. Thats scary if the person passed. I know we all get nervous on our driving tests, but thats a mistake you really shouldnt be making even if nervous.

This is why im kind of an self proclaimed elitist when it comes to driving. If you cant drive properly during a normal day, what are you going to do when you are in situations that require a level head like driving through a severe storm? Staying on the right part of the road is even more important during heavy snow storms, severe downpours, etc.

I don't mean to seem like an asshole, but don't refer to the whole of the uk as England. England is just a single country within the uk, and over here it is deemed offensive to refer to the whole thing singularly as any one of the member states. Either call it Britain (which you can use on a technicality although it does not include northern ireland), or the UK. You also forgot to mention Australia, which also drives on the left.

California is biggest by pollution and Alaska is biggest by area. Texas is only biggest in main body of US states (and in Texans heads)

#41(and #35) As if nationalism isn't strong elsewhere? I'm American, I have some nationalist pride (although it is limited) I don't get offended if someone calls me fat, lazy, or an overly-eccentric gun enthusiast (mainly because I kind of am) and all of those are very common generalizations. In all honesty, being a student in America, I can say that they don't teach us that here, although I am only a sophomore in high school. Also, he said London, not England.

Actually 47, i was referring to 30. And yes i know it is strong everywhere, but believe me when i say it is really strong here... We actually have an impending independence referendum in Scotland because of it. Scottish not British they say... And tbh judging by the attitudes over here (which are poorly reflected in the media at best) i'd give it around a 60% chance of passing, depending on how Glasgow votes. Glaswegians seem to be typically on the no side, however the majority elsewhere seem to

I agree with #50, it gets very annoying when Americans refer to Britain as 'England'. It makes people over here think that America doesnt have a good education system when people generally dont realise that the UK isnt just England by itself. But on the topic of the independence thing, I am from Scotland and can tell you that its really only the idiots who follow the SNP strongly. The rest of us know it is not a good idea and thats for the whole of Scotland. However, it is actually probably the

#54, if wrong is the opposite of right, and left is the opposite of right, then left and wrong mean the same thing, right?

# 30 This is the problem with some (not all Americans) - they seem to think that if it isn't done their way then it is automatically the wrong way.

Reply

This whole argument is pointless. 30 said nothing wrong. He listed 2 countries that drive on the left side of the road. He did not call Britain England. He called England England. No need to read so deep into a simple comment and deem it offensive.

Wow. Talk about not being able to take a joke. We drive on the "right" so the other side is "wrong" get it? As for the whole UK/Britian/England thing, while American schools do suck, we just don't care enough when we're referring to stuff "over the pond." Maybe I should take offense because you generalized me as an American and not a Californian? No I shouldn't just relax and stop getting offended so easily.

What makes you think people are referring to "Britain" when they say something about "England"? "Great Britain" is the island. England, Wales, Scotland are all several countries that are part of that one island. The "United Kingdom" is made up of the island called Britain and also part of Ireland. The poster you're making a big deal about was trying to make a joke, and picked two countries known for driving on the left. Don't get butthurt because you'

#73: You dont need to make it obvious that your education in particular sucked. Its Britain, not Britian. I dont think #30 was that offended anyway really, it just gets tiring seeing so many people only remember England and forget the rest of the UK. I've actually known people who didnt even know where Scotland was. Thats just sad. You guys get all offended if we ask if you're from Canada and not the USA, why shouldnt we get annoyed by you guys forgetting we have more than just 1 country joinin

#59 the American education system does suck. They schools care more about test scores than students care about learning , mainly because of a lack of motive and proper funding. America has one of the lowest average national test scores.

Reply

It really depends where you are from #59. I live in Aberdeen and the yes support is actually pretty darn strong here. I myself support it, although not for blind nationalism (although I did in fact write my university thesis on national identity in Scotland), I generally just spent several years researching it and believe it to be beneficial for a number of reasons (feel free to mail me and ask if you want, I will keep away from politics on here). However, as I said, Glasgow is the most cruci

tj, sorry, but you kind of do seem like an asshole. Martin was clearly joking. And so he didn't include every nation that drives on the left side of the road. Get over it. btw, I'm also English.

Reply

I meant on the "right" not the left, I also hope when people are referring to "Americans" they are just referring to the USA and not all of us on the "American" continents as most of us do not like being called American as that refers to people from the US :)

That my dear friend, is my idol Eleanor Calder with her friends (she's the second last and you gotta love her legs). Again, it was self-irony so please calm down.

I failed my drivers test. Luckly, the lady who was testing me, she was terrible at math so she didnt add up my points correctly so I passed anyways. Dont worry, I already told everyone to stay off the sidewalks when I'm driving.

Exactly. I was going to mention that testers are usually meaner than that and act like they have the worst job in the world. The last tester I had chewed me out for adjusting my side view mirrors while she was talking.

It's FML. Not many of the people who vote on this website have much in the way of rational thought.

Maybe OP recently moved to the US from another part of the world where they do drive on the left?

^Driver's permits are only valid in the country in which you received it. Even if she's from a country that drives an the left side of the road, she would've been driving on the right side for a minimum of 9 months, so she definitely should have been used to it by now.
