    Just found this ...... :eek: :biggrin:

    You know you're from Britain when.....

    You believe that Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday are all good nights for drinking. Sunday day is also entirely reasonable.

    You're always a half an hour late to work ... no-one notices or cares.

    Coming to work with a hangover is entirely accepted and indeed expected at least once a week.

    You step over a drunk in the tube station rather than offering to help them.

    You don't even bother looking out of the window when you get up in the morning to check what the day is like. You know it is overcast.

    You consider a suit to be normal attire for the pub.

    You expect men to actually cut, comb and style their hair (using hair products). And to wear decent clothes.

    You dissolve in laughter when listening to the funny accent of the Aussie international telephone operator (or on TV!).

    You think £40 for a haircut is quite reasonable.

    You can't remember what 'customer service' means.

    After a big night out you find yourself looking for a Curry house

    More than three hours sunlight on summer days seems excessive.

    You don't think twice about tipping your hairdresser

    You finish every sentence with 'Cheers' or 'Yeah'.

    You only just realise you have lost your sunnies, you left them in Greece 2 summers ago.

    You like English cuisine. I mean, it's hard to beat a full English breakfast.

    You are on to your 6th umbrella and your second overcoat... this year

    You've bought a disposable baby BBQ from Tesco.

    A day at the beach means wearing the warmest clothes you own while standing on golf ball-size pebbles and the thought of swimming doesn't even enter your head.

    You always call soccer football and you have a team and it's not Manchester United.

    You don't think twice about buying a packaged sandwich.

    A sunny lunchtime means searching for a patch of grass and stripping off practically down to your underwear

    You've accepted queuing as a way of life.

    You believe that every American is a fatass addicted to hamburgers and hotdogs.

    You despise the French (but then, who doesn't?).

    You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Britan.

    I think this is generalising a bit too much....

    (it should say England, not Britain methinks ;))

    You don't wear a suit to the pub then? ;)

    I am prepared to state, under oath, that I have never worn a suit to the pub. Ballgown, Dinner jacket, Band uniform, but never a suit.
