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?".
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
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.
Too many people believe all Scottish people eat haggis and shortbread, drink whiskey, wear tartan and play the bagpipes xD Oh, and that it's always raining x]
Oh the accent... the accent!
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?
These questions at time can be extremely annoying!
That I should be ginger, wear a kilt, drink loads, drink irn-bru when not drink alcohol, shout a lot (though to be fair I do) and be big dumb and hairy!
That we're all ugly as hell. SO not true!
I hate the 'cor blimey guv'nor! stereotype as well... good god, how outdated can you get?
Every time I say I'm from Spain, there's always someone who shouts Paella, fiesta, toros, chicas, sangría, tapas, playa! I love Spain!
fat, bald, Fosters drinking buffoons with St George's flag tattoos.
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.
