I've recently acquired an American colleague - she would probably say co-worker - who thinks the word "weird", used on its own, is weird, and weirdly British. Our conversation went something like this:
Her: The system's not working again; maybe there are, like, issues. But the IT guy said he'd fixed them.
Her: "Weird"? That's, like, soooo British.
I never knew that. Weird.
I'm American and I use often "weird" on it's own. It's commonly used. I can't make sense of your friend's comment.

Thanks, reactionry, for the interlude.
