Our treat for you on this lovely Sunday morning are some British tweets from this week which really made us laugh out loud.
I am British and I know that my fellow Brits and I have a special way of making everything awkward. I know, that statement sounds like I'm in some sort of 'Brits Anonymous' meeting, but I think it's important to acknowledge and embrace who we are at the core of our culture. Is it ridiculous that we insist on being so polite all the time? Yes. but would I change anything about it? No, because when you start pointing out the situations we put ourselves in every day, they are pretty hilarious. Twitter page Very British Problems articulates all the awkward nuances of what it means to be "so very British", and they're brilliantly accurate. So get comfy, make yourself a cup of good old British tea, and have a laugh at our expense.
Apparently most Americans don't know when Brits are being passive aggressive. The polling firm YouGov has found that many US citizens they polled wouldn't notice when British people use dismissive phrases like "with the greatest respect" and "I'll bear that in mind."
