Either I under-use the word 'excited', others over-use it, or the people I interact with are genuinely excited about everything.

Or maybe it's just that Americans use 'excited' for when British people use 'interested'? 🤔

To be honest, even the British people I work with use 'interested' way more than I would.

Perhaps I'm just unexcitable and uninteresting 😅


As a Brit, if I say "that's interesting", it normally means "please stop talking about it and then leave my vicinity if you would be so kind".
