30 British Problems
Not quite catching someone' s name,
meaning you can never speak to them again.
Realising you' entered the wrong shop
and having to pretend to look around for a
bit.
Being incapable of placing your items on the
counter in a shop without saying "Just these
please."
Going in a pub to use the loo and pretending
to look for a friend all the way into the
toilet.
Worrying you' ll be suspected a thief if
exiting a shop without making a purchase.
Saying you' re pleased with your haircut
despite the deep inner sadness it' s causing
you.
Deeming it necessary to do a little jog over
zebra crossings, while throwing in an
apologetic mini wave.
The shock of tasting Earl Grey when you
expected otherwise.
Attempting to deal with a by
staring fiercely at the back of their head.
Resigning yourself to an unusual and
arduous train route, rather than risk sharing
your commute with a colleague.
Writing a terribly modest CV, for fear of
appearing boastful.
Being unable to eat crisps at your desk
without worrying your mouth sounds like a
building site.
Never wanting to use an exclamation mark
yet worrying you' ll come across as miserable
without one.
Hoping your friend finishes their story so
you don' t have to miss your bus stop.
Panicking in a sandwich shop and allowing a
distressingly odd combination of fillings to
happen.
Allowing your bladder to explode rather
than wake a fellow plane passenger.
Nodding silently when your barber says "is
that alright?" even when it isn' t.
Not being able to say "great" without
sounding sarcastic.
Not wanting to use an emoticon yet
worrying you' ll come across as sarcastic
without one.
Receiving an email ending in "regards" and
wondering what you' done to cause so
much anger.
Asking to sample an ale, disliking it and
ordering a whole pint so as not to further
waste the barman' s time.
Seeing someone you know walking just
ahead of you, so stopping dead in the street
until they' re completely out of sight.
Losing faith in your delivery halfway through
a joke, so just explaining what the punch line
was going to be and why.
Nearly washing the skin off your hands so as
not to pressure using the dryer
Pretending to look at things you don' t even
want in the supermarket when someone
else is browsing the food you do.
Being unable to turn and walk in the
opposite direction without first taking out
your phone and frowning at it.
Noticing a small patch of blue sky and
immediately purchasing 24 cases of Pime' s.
Running out of ways to say thanks when a
succession of doors are held for you, having
already deployed 'cheers', 'ta,' and 'nice
one.
Shutting yourself in the wardrobe until the
window cleaner has finished and left.
Assuring your hairdresser the water
temperature is fine, despite a strong suspicion
your scalp is beginning to melt.

Geez, you lose one war to America a long time ago, and you still can't get over it. We've gotten over the war we beat you at. You should too.

At least you too it better than Japan.

I'm American and do almost all of these disregarding some terminology. These aren't British problems, they're people problems
User avatar #13 - onederman ONLINE (06/11/2014) [-]
I'm pretty sure the majority of these are just 'socially awkward problems'.
#12 - anonymous (06/11/2014) [-]
I'm drinking Earl Grey, unsweetened and iced, right now and I'm American.

Am I disgrace to my country?
#11 - anonymous (06/11/2014) [-]
None of these are specific to british people?
Some of these are repeated/rewored throughout the post, and most of these I've seen in other posts.
User avatar #10 - eeveeisbestpoke (06/10/2014) [-]
I have most of these but I am American...I guess old habits do die hard
