English Muffin.July 1, 2010
When I was in college, I worked with a woman from England. She was a wealth of information for me on all things British. One thing in particular has stuck with me. If you speaking to someone from the UK, never EVER call those little pouches that belt around the waist a “fanny pack.” It is apparently quite offensive.
According to her, she grew up calling them “bum bags.” Ugh. Frankly, I’m embarrassed either way.
