Weird things in the UK
Having lived in Germany for about 6 years, coming back to the UK is almost like moving back to a foreign country. I love the UK; I'm excited to be back. But here are a couple of weird UK-isms that have struck me:
- People actually drink that freeze-dried coffee slop. I’ve even started again myself, Lord help me.
- Strictly Come Dancing .... more like Strictly Interesting as Watching Paint Drying. But, boy oh boy, the flippin jury (who appear to be constantly high on way too much freeze-dried coffee) ... I was forced to dial the local hospital ordering a double lobotomy for all of them. But nobody was available as all were watching ... Strictly Come Dancing. Oh the unfathomable curiosities of the British psyche.
- Obsession with newspapers. I wonder if the blame for the financial crisis partly rests with them and their panic scare headlines.
- The youth. At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man ... BRING BACK THE CANE!
