Yeah, I've had that problem. Or them showing up a day early and now I have put some damn pants on, ughhh...

Pants are for suckers.

Pants are actually very difficult to get on if you have suckers. :problem:

Why? He's just an average, normal-looking, unsuspicious gentleman. Is there a particular reason he would know?

All of which is only made the more hilarious when you realise that, on this side of the Pond, pants means underwear.

While we're on the subject of words that have different meanings in the US and UK, I'd like to share the following advice for dealing with British tourists, or for when visiting the UK.

If a British person approaches you and asks to bum a fag, it doesn't mean what you think it means.

They are merely asking if you have a spare cigarette they can have.

Eh, still works, actually. Except I probably wouldn't bother putting them on just to answer the door, I'd skip straight to trousers.

And if you come over here and need to erase a pencil mark and ask to use a rubber, you might get anything from a funny look to being arrested - though I'm not sure if the term rubber (aka condom) is used any more or if it's just regional.
Ask for an eraser instead.

Now that one I did know. I can't remember why I know, but I knew it. Also also knew pants meant underwear.

I think it might be because of a few British Video/Board Game journalists I follow. I've absorbed some of the slang by osmosis.
