That in England because it's such a small country, we all live near each other and know each other. My aunt & uncle went to Florida a few years ago and were talking to some locals in a bar, who asked them where they were from. They said Newcastle, to which the Americans replied "Oh, I have some friends in London, would you know them?".

I have seen at all of stereotypes about countries it is always bothers me. Don't you all hate when people of other countries say those annoying, stupid and irritating stereotypes about your own country and people?
for ex: in UK you never can eat good food; all Americans are ignorant and fat; all Germans are violent and shout a lot; Swedish women are nympho; Italian are disorganized; Mexican are lazy; and so on.
Tell me the worst or the stupid ones you have read or heard about your country.
I know it's not a country but a lot of people think glaswegians are all just like rab c nesbitt :rolleyes:

We all drink tea (I don't like tea, I've never even drunk it)
We all fit into one of two groups - the upper class aristocracy living in castles and country homes driving Bentleys and riding horses, or working class chimney sweeps/thieves
We have a stiff upper lip (mine's quite flexible)
We love to queue
We all know everyone else in the UK, and everywhere is near to London

Apparently this is our old stereotype. I've discussed this a lot with my German flatmate and apparently we're now more renowned for being rude, loud, drunk and slutty. Oh, and ugly :rolleyes:

lots of foreigns consider poland as a poor communist country with some wild beasts on the road. YES, i am polish, BUT my dad is not a builder nor is my mum a cleaner/hair dresser, we do not abuse alcohol (although the culture of drinking is highly developed) and some of us actually do speak english.
oh and we don't eat swans of pigeons. and we don't steal cars, and we do SMILE!
LOL and no, poland is not a part of russia.

Being from Ireland there are a huge number of sterotypes about the Irish.
When im in England or Canada and say that im Irish, the usual questions which tend to pop up are:

- Is your name eoghan?
- Is it green in ireland?
- Your a follower of Eamon de valera?
- Guinness must be your favourite drink?
- Do you like baileys and coffee?

etc


These questions at time can be extremely annoying!

I don't think that being posh and speaking with recieved pronounciation have to go hand in hand though. I speak properly yet am from a low enough income family to have gotten full EMA and full maintenence grants for uni.
No offence, but I don't think saying gotten instead of got qualifies as speaking properly, or does it?

That we are all plumbers/builders and that the entire day is spent downing vodka in large quantities.

Also, for some reason, alot of lads seem to have it in their heads that Polish girls are all tall, blonde, skinny and *****y.
