Fair play. Non-confrontational.
English people are NOT non-confrontational... Sorry!

I agree with mollymustard though, you're good on sarcazm and tea

And yeah, other Europeans don't tend to be very good at queuing.. Unfortunately..

Me too, the weather is great, for some reason people think it's rubbish. If anything the summer is even a tiny bit too hot.
Exactly, in the summer I'm forever urging it to rain, nobody ever seems to agree though ;no;

I was in Naples a few days ago and there was an American family who were like "Oh thank God, you speak English!!", when i replied "yes... we're from ENGland" they went on to scream "i know i can tell! oh my god i love your accent, british accents are just the best arent they! you british hate our accent dont you" :laugh: it was funny. So anyway - the point of that story was that accent is quite important maybe?

Most of the things mentioned, plus our innate ability to beat seven shades of ****e out of anyone we take a dislike to... Mainly the French.

EDITED: 'Cos I'm feeling forgiving.

hah you said it! my teacher (in malaysia) was just telling us how one time he was pulled over at the toll booth for something while eating his mcdonalds. had a bit of chat with the police, knew fair well that he wanted some bribe money but my teacher was not having any of that. so the police realised he wasn't going to get anywhere with my teacher so he just gestured at his half eaten cheesburger :eek: :eek: :eek: he took it lol.

my friend (also in malaysia) was caught speeding not too long ago and he was pulled over. he had absolutely no money to bribe the cop so he just gave him this cheap polish vodka we just bought.

in bangladesh the best place to buy drugs are from the cops themselves. first hand experience.

i love the english for the weather / rain. though scandinavia win hands down with the whole melancholic depressed weather. and i love accent. Lancashire :love: but irish accent and boston accent are the best.

i don't like english food though. how can anyone eat so much sausages so early in the morning ffs :eek:

we have great food and I dont know why everyone says it's rubbish...Cottage Pie, Bangers and Mash, Beef Wellington...I fail to see how this is worse than what say the Germans or the Dutch have to offer :confused: I think it's great.

I like we are embarrassed about anything we ever do well. Luckily that isn't an issue much.
