Why do Americans say 'erbs

It's herbs with an H, not 'erbs. You are not French.

And aren't the English pretty guilty of not using the hard H sound anyway?

I wish I could delete things.

Only if you're like a cockney or from somewhere like that and are like 'ello m8 but when we do it it sounds British and not French like we're pretending to be cultured and French
