U beat me to it! I have wanted to do a thread on this very subject for some time. I have also noticed the US are hated by the UK on this site, and
more so here in the UK. I have lived on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk counties or the past 3 years and have traveled to every part of this
island...(They really hate it when you call it that)
This place is so inefficient.....the Brits love their processes here and because of this, it takes a crazy amount of time to get anything done here.
You would think with all the extra time they have had to perfect the processes, that they would be better at life in general.....they aren't.
Furthermore, they aren't funny or original in the slightest. They believe that their dry witty humor is amusing (which it is at first). But in the
pub if you pay enough attention more than not (if you are American) you are the butt end of the joke and even though they seem friendly on the
surface, it really is not the case.
Also, the food is deplorable! When I run into a UK citizen that has actually been to the US, the first thing the say is how much they love our food.
Finally, in the villages are all set up very haphazardly it is very hard to find anything.....and because there are no true chain stores here, if you
want specific items, you will have to find Fred's curtain store in a back alley in which you have to park 3 miles away....but I wont even get started
on parking.....ok....(the roads are tiny and they park on them) making the problem worse.
There is a reason why other countries of Europe make it a point when mentioning Europe in anything to specifiy "Not the UK, the UK is not Europe."
Take it from an American that lives here......they are all blowing smoke.....they are jealous.....that's it! They really hate the fact that their
women adore us so much.....that is a big part of it....and probably our dental plan as well...
Trust me....you have nothing to worry about, so just ignore them and enjoy your one stop shopping at Wal-mart and the awesome buffet at Ryans or
I will see you all in a year!
