And I am aware that you probably weren’t, but I’mma tell you anyhow.
I hate it so freaking much when people say ‘across the pond’ to refer to either North America or Europe (depending on your location obviously). I know I can’t stop people from saying it, I don’t bother mentioning it if someone says it in passing. But my GOD it really bugs me.
I don’t even know why it bugs me so much, it just does. A lot. Consider yourself warned.
