Someone just asked me where I was from.


Me: Do you know where Hampshire is?

Them: Yeah, that's somewhere up north, isn't it?

(pause)

Me: Only if you live in France...

reminds me of my friend...

me: i'm flying via Miami on the way to Costa Rica!
friend: why?
me: because there are no direct flights from the UK
friend: (a moments pause) why are you going all the way to America to go to Spain?

:rolleyes: The same friend also tried to convince me Prauge was in Holland.... in a Geography lesson.

My dads parents think Manchester is up North to them, despite the fact they actually live 6 miles further North (Lincoinshire) but just on the other side of the Pennines.

'so which of the two world wars was the first then?'

My geography is so bad, but at least I know that you don't need your passport to go to Cornwall, unlike someone I know :rolleyes:

I live in Croydon.

It's not strictly London Proper, but, y'know, I think I have a good claim to being a Londoner.

Well, my mum's council tax goes to the GLA. Thus I'm allowed to be a Londoner, in my book


And if anyone says that I live in Surrey, I s
point out that yes, I do. But then so do most South Londoners, what with Surrey going up as far as the River and all.
