    Someone drops and smashes a plate, you get the strong urge to shout "WHHAAYYY!"

    -You always complain about the weather.
    -Always say "sorry" even if it's not your fault whatsoever.
    -Smile whenever coming across strangers as a nice gesture (all my relative abroad found that weird).
    -Have too much banter with friends.

    Yup, sounds about right. That sorry thing gets me all the time, Its like a reflex now. I say sorry for literally no reason. I say thanks when people say sorry. I say thanks when other people thank me! Im too damn polite! lol

    This had me in tears laughing, I do almost all of these things on the train! Especially the pressing the button one. It's pretty awkward when the train operator is slow on the door release and youre just stood there with your arm and eyes fixed on the button waiting for the glorious halo of light lol

    I don't use trains all that much but I've had issues with the door too. Usually the second the button lights up I'll hit it. I'm regularly guilty of points two, three & four. Surely we can't be the only nationality that behaves like this?

    Being British is about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.
