First of all, I’m not British. I met a British person recently, who told me that Britain is the best. He said Britain invented the cars, aeroplanes, ships and all. ( is this true?) He also said Britain has the Queen, colonised a lot of countries and contributed a lot to the world.

I was flabbergasted lol. Why would one be proud of colonisation though. It’s horrible. I have never encountered anyone with so much patriotism or rather arrogance haha. I asked what did he think about Brexit, he gave me cynical smile and said everything will still be the same and Germany would not take the lead. I then replied if he had thought about the financial sectors such as there won’t be any passport rights for the UK banks anymore plus it’s the most important sector in the UK. He said well Britain will go back to manufacturing and doing other good things it did before.

To be honest, I don’t even know why I had that conversation with him. It’s very obvious he has not exposed to many other advancements in other countries lol. Probably, he doesn’t even have the money to fly out of the UK lol

Have anyone of you met anyone like this before? What a joke honestly hahaha

where did you meet him exactly. I've never met someone so apparently willing to answer so many personal questions from a complete stranger...

Your supposed encounter sounds totally fictitious and a convenient contrived opportunity for you to slate the UK.What an unpleasant person and I'm not talking about the imaginary British one.

Gyms are packed with them. Especially the locker rooms. They have this habit of just chilling there in packs with their dongs out trying to make you feel uncomfortable

Well, I wonder why people don’t believe this happened. Probably it is so shocking that people refuse to believe it. People refuse to believe there are people like this in the society. That’s why they are probably marginalised by the society. You have to acknowledge that there are all kinds of people in the society, regardless how advanced or developed a country is.

Also, shall I say it’s a story that shows how unknowledgeable one person can be?

I didn't say I don't believe it happened, I simply said it wasn't interesting.

He said Britain invented the cars (generally credited to German engineer Karl Benz), aeroplanes (generally credited to the American Wright brothers), ships (likely Ancient Egyptians) and all. ( is this true?) He also said Britain has the Queen (Not sure why this makes us the best country in the world), colonised a lot of countries (arguably not a good thing) and contributed a lot to the world (I suppose so, but probably not more than every other country).

Have anyone of you met anyone like this before? What a joke honestly hahaha


Yeah, it is a bit of a joke. Britain does quite well as a country but wouldn't go as far to say its the best in the world. Not all Brits are like this, don't worry

As somebody who lives in Britain, but hates calling themselves British, I'm afraid I have to dispute what the bloke at the gym said. Britain's okay, I suppose. In the grand scheme of things, generally pretty good, but there so much wiggle room and room for improvement, as per with most places.

I'll file this encounter under "things that never happened"

I'd say Britain is certainly up there, there aren't many places I'd choose to live in over Britain to be honest

To be fair, I think there’s nothing wrong for him to pride his own country this way, but the way he justifies it is just so shocking.

Yes I agree with you. Britain is doing quite well as compared to many other countries. Name:  0895E04D-845A-4936-AF71-BF9F17522785.jpg.jpeg

I am afraid it actually did happen.

Can’t dispute the fact that Britain is def up there.
