Being British!

this was sent to me...true true!

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

And the most British thing of all?
Suspicion of all things foreign!

Only in Britain can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.
Only in Britain do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the
back of the shop to get their prescriptions
while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in Britain do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a
DIET coke.

Only in Britain do banks leave both doors open
and chain the pens to the counters.

Only in Britain do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive
and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

Only in Britain do we use answering machines to screen calls and then
have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to
talk to in the first place.

Only in Britain are there disabled parking places
in front of a skating rink.

Being British is about driving in a German car (French actually)
to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, (English for English bitter)
then grabbing an Indian curry (oh please!) or a Turkish kebab on the way home,
to sit on Swedish furniture
and watch American (Dave mainly) shows on a (who cares) Japanese TV.

And the most British thing of all?
Suspicion of all things foreign! (apart form all the things mentioned above, oh and my neighbours and some colleagues and…)

Only in Britain can a pizza (no an Indian or (Chinese)) get to your house faster than an ambulance.
Only in Britain do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions (have you not heard of exercise on prescription!)while healthy people can buy cigarettes (who fund the NHS!)at the front.

Only in Britain (not USA then as they supersize!)do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke.

Only in Britain do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters (It would not work the other way round).

Only in Britain do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and lock our junk (you calling my bikes junk!!!!!!) and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

Only in Britain do we use answering machines to screen calls (from call centres) and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

Only in Britain are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink (disablist pigs).

Only in Britain do we tolerate twaddle with our particular brand of humour, ride on the correct side of the road …
 
i think he meant having children under the age of 15 as in a Gary Glitter kind of way which is quite British.

Barnet,
Being British is being tolerant of everybody, many whom then shaft you. Maybe i'm just in a bad mood today:angry:

This seems far more logical than the Braille buttons we have in our company multi-storey car park lift... if you give a vision-impaired person a lift, surely it would be nice to ensure they don't just get run over the instant they leave the car.

On the other hand, if the buttons are for the drivers themselves..... :8:
