While we are at it, it sounds weird when Brits say maths, even if it makes sense (short for mathematics).

But it drives me bonkers when they say Goldmans, Merrills, and Morgans, instead of the singular (and no this is never done in a context to suggest possesive).

bonker ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As an investment analyst who spent six years working and living in London, I couldn't agree more.  Also they omit the word "the" when talking about a hospital.  "I went to hospital"  ... "okay, neanderthal!"
