Bag, hammer, towel. I find it cathartic.

Last night, I learned that the towel should go around the bag, not just on top of it.

He hadn't been in this country too long, so it was a learning lesson for him also.

I once read a book written my a former American soldier stationed in England during The War. It was hilarious. All about the differences in our language in common. Or not so common. He had desk duty and one lovely young lady asked him if he had a 'rubber.' He had to ask a male in the office why would she ask him that? He was in a state of shock. His first thought was that maybe it was her way of telling him he might get lucky that night. I was on the floor reading that book.
I learned some Brit expressions from a South African boy friend (like rubber - eraser) and whole lot from my ex who was from just outside Edinburgh, Scotland.
