Came across some rather amusing anecdotes which I thought I'd share. Must confess they had me in stitches as unfortunately I can more than relate!!
Tea after all, is a very important topic for us Brits!
Happy reading and I'm sure you'll agree we do suffer for our British stiff upper lip!
Very British Problems
Worrying you look like you’re pocketing a chocolate bar every time you put your phone away in a newsagent’s shop
Being unable to open a packet of biscuits without breaking the first two
The heartbreak of finding an empty teacup when you thought there was one gulp to go
Trembling with rage on discovering a tea bag in the sink
Suspecting you've been overcharged, so making sure to frown as you insert your debit card and pay in full
Bidding someone farewell and then striding off in the same direction
The alarming moment when someone you've told to 'pop round anytime' decides to pop round
Feeling you must press the train door button within a millisecond of illumination or be judged an amateur
Being mistaken for a shop assistant and simply assuming the role as best you can
Being mortified to realise you've been waiting to exit the train on the wrong side, and have caused others to do the same
Being flabbergasted at how many people add milk at the wrong stage of the tea making process
Becoming so furious that you hold the "I" of "I beg your pardon" for a good three seconds
Discovering you've missed your tea's perfect drinking temperature by a fraction of a second
Accidentally touching a fellow commuter's hand and recoiling as if you've just been bitten by an adder
And many more in the handy non pocket size book available from Amazon apparently and quite reasonable too I'm told
