There are many things in your daily life that may seem completely normal – but would absolutely astound someone from a different culture.
An American TikToker living in the UK has gone viral after pointing out a strangely bizarre thing with our motors.
In the video, which has been viewed more than 100,000 times, American films feature a row of houses with cars parked outside their garages.
And he asked: “Why do British people build garages in their living rooms but then park in their front yards? It’s so weird.”
The post was then flooded with comments from Brits who couldn’t resist freaking out over the confusion – jokingly we have more important uses for garages.
One person wrote: “We apparently store all our tea there.”
Another said: “The garage isn’t for cars, so what does that have to do with the driveway? The garage is meant to hold tea bags and a permanently boiled kettle.
And a third commented: “Can’t bother to open and close the garage, but they’ll drive.”
However, some more serious comments provide a reasonable explanation to the TikTok visitor.
He told them that garages are often too small for modern cars, and are usually used for storage instead.
One posted: “We just store stuff in there. The houses are quite small.”
Another commenter said: “Yeah I’m from the UK and some of the house designs make zero sense. The garage is mainly for storage, the cars are too big for a garage now.”
Some Britons also took the American side, with one saying: “You really have a point. I’ve never seen a car in a garage in this country.”
Another questioned: “It’s a wonder and I’m British.”
