What are some differences between American English and British English?

I speak American English and have run into some funny situations when talking with British English speakers.

For example the slang word for "drunk" in British English is "pissed"
In American English "pissed" means angry or mad.

These can create some interesting confusion between speakers of the two dialects.

Has anyone ever run into a similar confusion?
Or can you think of any other common words which we use differently?
